Description

Nova Scotia, 1762: While Elizabeth's mother is busy preparing for the arrival of a baby, plans to start up a school in their home must be put on hold. But when Elizabeth learns that her friend Mathilde can't read, she's determined to do something about it. In between chores at the Porter house, she begins to teach Mathilde and young Josh Porter. When Elizabeth's friend Sarah hears about the secret school, she decides to pitch in with the teaching, much to Mathilde's dismay. Will Elizabeth ever manage to bring her two friends together? And will her students be prepared for the Christmas Day surprise she has in store for their families?.

Welcome back to OUR CANADIAN GIRL and the continuing adventures of Elizabeth and many other smart, spirited, and courageous girls. They come from different places and times in Canadian history, and each of them meets some ordinary-and extraordinary-challenges in her day-to-day life.
