From the Publisher:

Cassie's mother told her, "Times are hard, honey." With jobs scarce, Cassie's daddy had gone to Louisiana to lay track for the railroads to get money to feed his children back in Mississippi. That was when the trouble started. Mr. Andersen dared cheat Big Ma by forcing her to sell the giant old trees in the forest surrounding the house. The trees were Cassie's friends, singing her a special song that others insisted was only the wind. What would happen now with daddy away?
