Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Dakota Territory, 1880. When Hanna arrives in the town of LaForge, she sees possibilities. Her father could open a shop on the main street. She could go to school, if there is a school, and even realize her dream of becoming a dressmaker - provided she can convince Papa, that is. She and Papa could make a home here. But Hanna is half-Chinese, and she knows from experience that most white people don't want neighbors who aren't white themselves. The people of LaForge have never seen an Asian person before; most are unwelcoming and unfriendly - but they don't even know her! Hanna is determined to stay in LaForge and persuade them to see beyond her surface.
