A story that takes place in Ohio, back in the days of slavery (1855) about a young woman who lives with her parents. Her mother is very unhappy and her father is an alcoholic.
Kate wishes to become the first woman to graduate from her local collage, however, she is very shy and cannot speak in front of her peers. Will she over come that and be the first woman to graduate there?
Kate's mother wishes to marry her off to an influential family, and the gentleman is more than welcome to oblige. We he seek her hand in marriage?
But, Kate has some ideas of her own. She finagles a trip with some family friends and has an adventure of her own. How will this change our shy Kate?
A wonderful story, although slow moving, of different times, that the author has definitely done her homework on.
