It covers the lives of the five children of Mamsie and the late Mister Pepper who are born into poverty in a rural "little brown house." In this book, Joel and Davie Pepper are away at boarding school trying to learn manners and self-reliance while their sister Polly must cope with gossips and snobs at her school. But when a terrible train accident leaves the brakeman's wife a widow with children to support, Polly tries to help them by raising money. Can she make it work? An Author's Republic audio production.
