Synopsis: The nuns use this as their measuring stick: who your people are. Well, what if you don t have no people? Or any you know of? What then? Are you doomed? This is the nagging question of fifteen-year-old Nell s life. Born with a cleft palate and left a foundling on the doorstep of a convent, she yearns to know her mother, whose name, she knows, was Jane. When the Mother Superior tries to pawn her off to a mean looking farmer and his beaten down wife, Nell opts for the only alternative she can see: she runs away. A chance encounter with a dime novel exhorting the exploits of Calamity Jane, heroine of the west, gives Nell the purpose of her life: to find Calamity Jane, who Nell is convinced is her mother. Her quest takes her down rivers, up rivers and across the Badlands to Deadwood, South Dakota and introduces her to Soot, a big, lovable black dog, and Jeremy Chatterfield, a handsome young Englishman who isn t particular about how he makes his way, as long as he doesn t have to work for it. Together they trek across the country meeting characters as wonderful and bizarre as the adventure they seek, learning about themselves and the world along the way. You ll take Nell with you to that special place in your memory where you keep the best characters. She ll stick with you, beat you down, buoy you up and teach you a thing or two about life. You ll wonder at her stubborn determination, her patience and her courage, but you won t forget her. Not for a long time.
About the Author: Judith Redline Coopey was born in Altoona, PA and holds degrees from the Pennsylvania State University and Arizona State University. A passion for history inherited from her father drives her writing. Her first book, Redfield Farm was the story of the Underground Railroad in Bedford County, Pennsylvania. The second, Waterproof, tells how the 1889 Johnstown Flood nearly destroyed a young woman s life. Looking For Jane is a quest for love and family in the 1890s brought to life through the eyes of Nell, a young girl convinced that Calamity Jane is her mother. As a teacher, writer and student of history, Ms Coopey finds her inspiration in the rich history of her native state and in stories of the lives of those who have gone before.
