From the publisher:
After struggling alone in the wilderness for weeks, Glory decides that she must get to Boston. But the world outside Dogwood is more overwhelming and terrifying than Glory could ever have imagined. Finally, with the help of a few kind and generous strangers, Glory takes her first tentative steps toward a life she never imagined for herself. A life without family or friends or a place to call home, but not without hope.
