(From the publisher):
With their mother dead and their father searching for gold in California, Hope Douglas and her younger brother, John, have no one to care for them but the Shakers. Their only relative, their uncle, doesn't want them, and they're too young to take care of themselves.
Hope can't deny the kindness of the Shakers. Yet while John thrives in the community, Hope can think of nothing but leaving. She knows there's only one way she will be allowed to go: Her father must come for her. It's a dream Hope tries desperately to keep alive. But as her stay grows longer, her dream begins to fade. Will her father ever come? Or is she fated to remain here until she is old enough to leave on her own?
