Pixie Pushes On

Told in the title character’s spunky voice, Pixie Pushes On is the tale of a young farm girl whose life never seems to go right.  It’s the 1940’s in the heartland; Pixie’s mother recently died, and her sister, Charlotte, has been in the hospital with polio for months.  The worst part—Pixie is convinced that it was her bad luck that got them sick. When a neighbor offers an infant lamb rejected by his mother, she finds a new sense of purpose in caring for him.  Although Pixie’s heart breaks over and over again, she learns many valuable (and bittersweet) lessons and finds family where she least expects it.
