Add a Summary

From the back of book:
All her life, Elspet Mary seems to have known nothing but loss. First her mother died, then her father, leaving her with Aunt Ailsa and Uncle Will Gordon. And now, just when she is beginning to feel home in Glen Buchan, she is being torn away again. Uncle Will has already left to start clearing a farm to the New World, in Upper Canada. The rest of the family must follow soon.
