Emily Ann's a happy and vibrant carefree 10-year-old. Her mother died when she was four, resulting in her having to live with her father and stepmother. They divorced and her father could no longer care for her, and sent her to live with her grandparents in a small rural town. While there she enjoys new friends and a close-knit family atmosphere. The simplicity of warm sunny days playing in the creek, fishing, and the fresh country air appeals to her.
After she gets settled with her grandparents, it's determined her stay with them would only be temporary and she would soon be moved again. A move that Emily Ann and her grandparents are dreading. She yearns for a permanent home with a loving family. Will her dreams of finding a permanent home be realized? She sure hopes so.
