Opal spends her childhood in a small town with her mother's family and friends. Her mother died when Opal was only seven years old, and Opal feels that it is her fault, because before she died, Opal hadn't been following directions. Her father is off traveling, and her dearest cousin has gone to war. Opal is always afraid that if she does the slightest thing wrong, her new family will leave her. But as she grows older, she learns that through thick and thin, the people who love you will always be there.
