Show synopsis Mary Ware, introduced to readers in The Little Colonel series (all published by Pelican), is seventeen years old and ready for adventure. Although she is young, she has already had many travels and experiences, including a trip to New York City and a wonderful season at boarding school. Now she is heading back out West with her family, but not without leaving behind some unfulfilled hopes. She can only correspond through letters to one whom she longs more than anything to see. Mary watches delightedly as her handsome brother Jack finds romance, but her joy for his happiness is tempered by her own desires. Follow Mary Ware on her adventure to womanhood. Her honest and easygoing personality will win the confidence of all young readers. Her friends and family will capture hearts as well. Does Mary's "promised land" really exist, and will she ever reach it? Ms. Johnston answers both of these questions and skillfully creates yet another enduring classic.
