PEARL by Lauraine Snelling
5 1/2 hours
Pearl is teaching at the settlement house in Chicago when her father decides that it is time for her to marry, he even has the groom chosen. Pearl finds the chosen one not to her liking and by chance reads an ad for a teacher needed in Dakata territory. She applies for the position and when chosen slips off in the night to go to a whole new life, beginning at Dove House.
Pearl soon fits right in with the town of Little Missouri and when she makes the acquaintance of a young carpenter who shares her love of reading, things are looking good. Then her father arrives to return her to Chicago!
