There aren't many options for a young woman growing up on a family farm in the early 1900's, but Liddie Treadway is determined to pursue a career instead of getting married and starting a family. She patiently waits for the day when both of her parents agree to let her work as a seamstress in town. Several obstacles are thrown into Liddie's path but eventually her dream comes true. She loves her independence, her employer, and her new friend Minnie. She even has a new-found passion: photography; but she misses her family and friends and the life she once had at the farm. Liddie must decide what she truly wants - a life of adventure or a life of love.
I wanted to like this book. I felt as though the characters were mostly one-dimensional and flat. The book itself is forgettable.
