Description

May Amelia Jackson lives in Washington State in 1900, but she just can’t act the part of a proper young lady. Working a muddy farm on the rainy Nasel River isn’t easy—
especially when you have seven brothers and a pappa who proclaims that Girls Are Useless. May Amelia jumps at the chance to earn her father’s respect when he asks her to translate for a gentleman who’s interested in buying their land and making them rich. Could this really be the end of the farming life for the Jacksons? May Amelia’s about to learn one thing for certain: She’s got more sisu—that’s Finnish for “guts”— than seven boys put together!
