Kathleen McKenzie and her family are moving from their home in the city to the family farm because Papa has lost his job in the stock market crash of 1929. As 12-year-old Kathleen nervously attempts to fit into rustic farm life with all its chores and challenges, she also struggles to make friends with her cousin, Lindsay. On her first hunting trip, Kathleen mistakenly shoots a neighbor's dog, and the family tries to nurse the dog back to health. As a blizzard rages outside the cozy farmhouse, Kathleen learns from her Grandma Maggie's life story about trusting in God's plan even through hardship.
The McKenzie family members are strong believers. They regularly pray and read the Bible and discuss their faith with each other. Kathleen relies on God to guide her in difficult situations.
Other Belief Systems
Although a dog is shot, the incident is not graphic in nature.
Kathleen receives a letter from her classmate, Freddie, and is embarrassed by the implication that they may be more than friends. She voices her decision not to have a beau until she is old enough to consider marriage.
