Fourteen-year-old Joan Skraggs, just like the heroines in her beloved novels, yearns for real life and true love. But what hope is there for adventure, beauty, or art on a hardscrabble farm in Pennsylvania where the work never ends? Over the summer of 1911, Joan pours her heart out into her diary as she seeks a new, better life for herself--because maybe, just maybe, a hired girl cleaning and cooking for six dollars a week can become what a farm girl could only dream of--a woman with a future.

This is the story of a passionate, persistent, determined young girl in search of knowledge, not just for the sake of learning but for the pure thrill of it. She sets off to make her way in the world in spite of her circumstances, with stories or heroes and heroines pushing her forward. This is a story of resilience, courage and an openness of what the world has to teach her. This is a wonderful wholesome book that will not disappoint!
