Without warning, Houston teenager Ginny Dorris is packed off to England to join her father in a university experiment--a re-creation of an Iron Age community--while her mother recovers from a serious illness. Ginny copes with unimaginably primitive living conditions and longs to go home, but gradually she is drawn into the community's life and discovers resources that neither she nor her father knew she had. This fast-paced yet thoughtfulcoming-of-age story is based on a real-life Iron Age experiment.
