Catherine, a girl coming of age in nineteenth-century New Hampshire, records the hardships of pioneer life and its many joys. Even as Catherine struggles with her mother’s death and father’s eventual remarriage, her indomitable spirit makes this saga an oftentimes uplifting and joyous one. (Atheneum)
