A debut YA American epic and historical adventure from Melissa Ostrom about striking out for your own destiny. She's not the girl everyone expects her to be. Harriet Winter is the eldest daughter in a farming family in New Hampshire, 1807. She is expected to help with her younger sisters. To pitch in with the cooking and cleaning. And to marry her neighbor, the farmer Daniel Long. Harriet’s mother sees Daniel as a good match, but Harriet doesn’t want someone else to choose her path—in love or in life. When Harriet’s brother decides to strike out for the Genesee Valley in Western New York, Harriet decides to go with him—disguised as a boy. Their journey includes sickness, uninvited strangers, and difficult emotional terrain as Harriet sees more of the world, realizes what she wants, and accepts who she’s loved all along.

In a book that is both urgent and timely, Melissa Ostrom explores the intricacies of shame and victim-blaming that accompany the aftermath of assault. After surviving an assault at an off-campus party, nineteen-year-old Maggie is escaping her college town, and, because her reporting the crime has led to the expulsion of some popular athletes, many people—in particular, the outraged Tigers fans—are happy to see her go. Maggie moves in with her Aunt Wren, a sculptor who lives in an isolated cabin bordered by nothing but woods and water. Maggie wants to forget, heal, and hide, but her aunt’s place harbors secrets and situations that complicate the plan. Worse, the trauma Maggie hoped to leave behind has followed her, haunting her in ways she can’t control, including flashbacks, insomnia and a sense of panic. Her troubles intensify when she begins to receive messages from another student who has survived a rape on her old campus. Just when Maggie musters the courage to answer her emails, the young woman goes silent.

In May 1931, 100 people, of whom 70 were missionaries serving in Angola, Belgian Congo and Northern Rhodesia, met at Muchacha in the Congo, to give thanks for 50 years of pioneering work, and survey the progress made, in what came to be known as 'The Beloved Strip.' Within these years, beginning with the going out of F. S. Arnot in 1881, a total of 283 men and women served there, coming initially from Britain, but increasingly over the years from Europe, North America, and Australia and New Zealand. Some served for a short period of time, but all were utterly convinced they should be there. These were years of great change and uncertainty, as the 'Scramble for Africa' took place, and tribal chiefs, some opposed to the Gospel, still held sway in the early years. The background against which missionaries laboured is considered: deep-seated native beliefs and customs; the evil influence of the white traders; the 'open sore of Africa', i.e. slavery; the dangers of wild life. After surveying the development of missionary stations, several 'issues' are considered: when a local church can be considered indigenous and autonomous; the valuable contribution of native African Christians as an essential part of the picture; how valuable and necessary medical and school work is; what is the value of women on the mission field? Later chapters consider visitors' impressions of the work and years of blessing and growth.
