After traveling thousands of miles, Dorothy Bolton is still getting used to her new home in Canada, and on the prairies no less.

The Barr Colonists who arrived with Dorothy and her family are getting restless. Fire and flood consume homes and resources, and many promises made to them before leaving England have proven false.

But Dorothy’s father has always dreamed of having his own farm. So, with the help of Dorothy, her family and a community that comes together despite their different backgrounds, the Boltons set out to create a life for themselves on the vast prairie landscape.
