IAGT March - Katerina's Wish
Katerina's Wish by Jeannie Mobley
Thirteen-year-old Trina's family left Bohemia for a Colorado coal town to earn money to buy a farm, but by 1901 she doubts that either hard work or hoping will be enough, even after a strange fish seems to grant her sisters' wishes.
Exciting News! Jeannie Mobley is a confirmed author for this year's Book Feast to be held on September 28, 2013! Jeannie will give a presentation about her first book, Katerina's Wish, a brilliant work of Colorado historical fiction. Grades 5 and up. Be sure to read it before her visit!
