Counter Agatha Mae Vaughn is 12 years old in 1866, and she lives in the Asylum for Homeless Waifs, where she's always in trouble or in the way. So when she's told she's being sent west on the orphan train, Aggie isn't sad. She's looking forward to starting fresh and finding the family she's never had.

But instead of young parents and maybe even a little brother or sister, Aggie gets the Bradons. Bertha and Eldon Bradon are an elderly couple who live on a farm with their two older children--Leon, a budding inventor, and Penelope, a crusader for women's right to vote. This is not the family Aggie had in mind. Will she ever fit in?
