What do you do if you’re a girl in the 1800s who hates sewing, but it’s a skill every girl is expected to master? For Abbie Rogers, needlework lessons and stitching a sampler are frustrating – until she comes up with a plan to show her individuality. A heart-tugging story set in early America that not only makes history come to life but shows how important it is to be yourself.
