Publisher Comments:

Sixteen-year-old Jane Peck has ventured to the unknown wilds of the Northwest to wed her childhood idol, William Baldt. But her impeccable training at Miss Hepplewhite's Young Ladies Academy in Philadelphia is hardly preparation for the colorful characters and crude life that await her in Washington Territory.

Thrown upon her wits in the wild, Jane must determine for herself whether she is truly proper Miss Jane Peck of Philadelphia, faultless young lady and fiancée, or Boston Jane, as the Chinook dub her, fearless and loyal woman of the frontier.

An exciting new novel from Jennifer L. Holm, author of the Newbery Honor Book Our Only May Amelia.

About the Author

Jennifer L. Holm is the grandniece of Alice Amelia Holm, a Finnish-American girl born on the Nasel River in Washington state during the nineteenth century. The recent discovery of her grandaunt's diary and her ancestors' adventures in the Pacific Northwest inspired the character of May Amelia.

Ms. Holm produces television commercials and lives in Brooklyn, New York, where she is working on her next book.

I avoided this book for a long time, because the cover was kinda...girly. But, as the saying goes, don't judge a book by it's cover!

This book was really good, once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down! And once the final word was read, I ran to the computer and ordered the rest of the trilogy! Don't be fooled by the cover, this is a really good book!
