It's 1854 in Westfields, Massachusetts, a town filled with two kinds of people - Yankees and Irish. Traditionally, the Irish children have gone to their own schools. Traditionally the Irish have attended church in the front room of someone's home. Traditionally the Yankees have held the better jobs, and their children have gone to the good schools. Well, times they are a-changin' in Westfields, and it isn't an easy process as Charlotte and Maggie will see as they test their friendship amidst the prejudice of the adult world. 160 pages Ages 9-12
