Rose Larkin ... is an orphan who lives in New York City. But when she is twelve years old, she is packed off to live with relatives in an old farmhouse in Ontario.

She and Susan set out on a journey that brings them into unexpected dangers and adventures, a journey on which Rose gains the strength and confidence to deal with her own world.
