    Within a few years she is a lady. Her one hope of escape, going into the oyster harvesting business with her landlord, ends in disaster when he gambles away all the profit of their first shipment and leaves nothing to pay the laborers who worked for them. Soon after the first blow of finding that her intended had failed to wait for her, Jane receives the last letter from her father which was mailed after his death. We're solving it. And can she keep her wits about her as she braves a flea-ridden cabin, a perilous manhunt. But can a proper young lady find happiness as the only woman in a primitive pioneer settlement?

    Swan's canoe, which has been lost in a storm, then replacing it by trading much of her wedding trousseau with Suis, with whom she has built a steady relationship. Suddenly, Boston Jane, as her new Chinook neighbors call her, must cast aside her "faultless young lady" demeanor and depend on her long-suppressed pioneer spirit to survive. Alone in this harsh wilderness, Jane is going to have to work to survive, even if it's something no "proper lady" would ever do. Jane soon finds out that William only wanted to marry her for the land, since married men received more land then single ones. Since Our Only May Amelia HarperCollins,Holm has collected three Newbery Honors, and this sequel demonstrates her mastery of writing a complete, exciting story in a trim novel. This is the first novel I have ever read by Jennifer L.

    Jehu the shipmate from Jane's voyage stays too and falls in love with Jane. Specifically, brothers. Q: Do you have a lot of brothers like May Amelia? Praise: "Chock-full of creepy moments, genuine tragedy, and sinister secrets.
