The Beloved Wild, Hardback Book


Harriet Winter is the eldest daughter in a farming family in New Hampshire, 1807.

Her neighbour is Daniel Long, who runs his family's farm on his own after the death of his parents.

Harriet's mother sees Daniel as a good match, but Harriet isn't so sure she wants someone else to choose her path - in love and in life. When her brother decides to strike out for the Genesee Valley in western New York, Harriet decides to go with him - disguised as a boy.

Their journey includes sickness, uninvited guests, and difficult emotional terrain as Harriet comes of age, realizes what she wants, and accepts who she's loved all along.
