Prairie Anna, historical fiction for young readers by Peggy House, tells the story of Anna, the middle daughter in a family of Russian immigrants. Most of Anna’s life is decided for her—what to study, which chores to do, when to eat and sleep. Everyone in her family works hard to survive the bitter winters and blazing summers of the prairie. But when hardship takes her away from familiar places and loved ones, Anna must decide what to do with the one choice she is given.
