is 1839 and Lucy's parents have died. She is now being sent to live
with an aunt and uncle she has never met. They run a mission school
for Indians. Aunt Emma is rather cold and has lots of rules.
Especially about not showing affection. She believes in living a
simple life. The Indian children at the school are taught to read,
write and do arithmetic. They are also taught a skill to get them
by in the world. Lucy is sad that the Indians are forced to give
up their Indian ways in order to fit in. When a strong willed girl
arrives, Lucy learns more than she ever thought she would. Find out
