Abby must put her courage to the test.

In 1766 at the age of five Abby is sent away to live with various people. After a few years she finds a home as a servant girl with the Thomas family. Being a young female among ten boys quickly proves to be a physical and mental challenge for Abby. However, she refuses to let others define who she will be, as she fights to overcome prejudice and gain equality. In 1775, she is caught up in the American Revolution and finds that her courage, faith, and character will be tested to the limit.
