 She is a creative, young lady whom girls from any century can relate. Follow along as she discovers a mysterious past she doesn’t know she has. Learn with her as she follows her curiosity in the natural world and writes and draws and paints. Watch as she negotiates difficult and tedious neighbors and family members.
