Summary: Nominated for the 2010 Geoffrey Bilson Award for Historical Fiction!

Pru Burbidge lives a simple life on the family homestead on Dalhousie Road in 1940s rural Nova Scotia, until her father abandons the family and her mother falls ill. Her life is turned upside-down by these events, and she is forced to take on the role of primary caregiver to her siblings, Jessie, Flora, and Davey.

Things go from bad to worse when Pru's mother dies, leaving Pru and Jessie, her older brother, to care for the family in secret so they are not separated and sent away to foster homes, or worse, the orphan house. Pru and Jessie do everything they can to hide the fact that their mother has passed away and keep the family together, but their situation becomes increasingly dire as their money and food supplies begin to run out and their neighbours start getting suspicious.

When the situation comes to a head and they are on the verge of being found out, Pru and her siblings must work together to save their family from being torn apart.
