Synopsis: Fifteen-year-old Camilla Dickinson has led a sheltered life with her architect father and stunningly beautiful mother. But suddenly the security she’s always known vanishes as her parents’ marriage begins to crumble—and Camilla is caught in the middle. Then she meets Frank, her best friend’s brother, and he’s someone she can really talk to about life, death, God, and her dream of becoming an astronomer. As Camilla and Frank roam the streets of New York City together, lost in conversation, and he introduces her to people who are so different from anyone she has met before, he opens her eyes to worlds beyond her own, almost as if he were a telescope helping her to see the stars. But will Camilla’s first love be all she hopes, or will Frank just add more heartbreak to her life?

The series of letters that make up the book cover a period of two and half years. Though most were originally written to her mother, the letters were later compiled and published for an intended audience of future female emigrants. Traillís account of life in the New World is cheerful and buoyant despite the hardships she relaysófrom the three-month journey to Upper Canada by ship to settling in the bush near Peterborough, Ontario. The letters offer remarkable insight into the skills a well-suited woman might be expected to learn, but the lasting appeal of her work is due to her astute observations of changing notions of class and economy, which reached well beyond her stated audience. Traill typified a new type of woman - the pioneer -and contributed much to an emerging understanding of Canada and Canadian identity. ."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo.
