Publisher's Summary

How can Marie fit in with her new friends? Marie Brinker moved to America with her family. Her friends have new ways of dressing and talking, and making crafts. Will the new sewing machines take away her father's tailoring work? Will Papa like his new quilt instead of his featherbed? When her friend August sells her hair at the county fair, Marie must decide who is a true friend and what new customs to follow.

    Story
    "Based on a true story!"
    What did you like best about this story?

    The author paints an accurate picture of rural life in the 1800's. Though fictional, the short book is based on the true story of Marie Brinker.


    Any additional comments?

    Marie and her family emigrated from France to the U.S. in the mid 1850's. Her father ended up spending time away from the family in order to find work. At the same time, Marie struggled to adjust to the customs of her new country.
