But Abbie cant ignore her dreams. WhyMoreAbbies father is full of tales and teachings, and Abbie doesnt know if she could survive without them -- specially since Papa is living away from the family, working to raise money to buy their homestead. But Abbie cant ignore her dreams. Why cant her family live in a real house with a piano, instead of isolated in an old soddy on the Nebraska prairie? Why cant she go to school? And why cant she and her sister look forward to owning land someday, the way her brothers Can? Papa says Abbie is irrepressible. Mamma tells her to stop dreaming and accept her lot. Abbie prays she can do as Mamma asks. And then, just when Abbie thinks her wishes might come true, tragedy strikes at home -- and she thinks it may be her fault. What good are Papas stories and her dreams when lives hang in the balance?
