Product Description:

After spending a Fresh Air Fund vacation discovering a new world on a Vermont farm, Dossi thought that returning home to the bustling New York of 1910 would be simple. Little did she know that, even in a familiar place, there are new things to experience ... Her sister, Ruthi, is to be married, and they are to move out of their one room into Ruthi's husband's apartment - where Dossi will have her own space!

But as independent Dossi learns, adjusting to life with her new brother-in-law - and his rules - is not always easy. As she writes to Emma (a friend she made in Vermont) Dossi reveals her frustrations, her fears about her new life, and her dreams for the future. Soon she finds that, no matter where she is, she has much to discover inside herself.

Readers who are already acquainted with Dossi from Faraway Summer - as well as those meeting her for the first time - will root for her as she moves through an eventful thirteenth year in this affecting story.

For ages 10 to 14.
