Thirteen-year-old Anna’s passionate dream is to go to high school, the first girl from her tiny farm community back in 1910 to do so. She is determined not to stay at home like her older sister, Mary Ellen, helping their mother and waiting to marry a local farmer. But there is no money to send her to River Heights, seven miles away, and anyway, her mother needs her.
When sixteen-year-old Mary Ellen is sexually assaulted by a local boy, the situation gets worse. No one suspects Mary Ellen is pregnant until she gives birth to the illegitimate baby. The surprise birth threatens to ruin the family’s standing in the community and Mary Ellen’s reputation.
Anna wrestles with helping her parents and sister while still striving to make her burning desire to go to high school a reality. Meanwhile she becomes involved in solving the mystery of a missing ring, and in stopping another attack by the boy who assaulted her sister. But how will that help her realize her dream?

A Short Story
Hanging from the edge of a cliff wasn’t the way Andrew Martin planned to start his day. He took a chance setting up his tripod too close to the canyon’s edge and now there he was, praying someone would come to the rescue. Luckily his good friend finds him and they head off to El Tovar for lunch. Andrew isn’t done taking chances for the day. He hears about a new girl working at the restaurant. When he meets her, she’s all he can think about. It’s 1927 and the world has certain rules to follow. Does he dare break them to be with the girl of his dreams?
