Book description

"My name is Pringle. This is my story....
In the spring of 1871, fourteen-year-old Pringle Rose learns that her parents have been killed in a terrible carriage accident. Shortly afterward, her uncle Edward and his awful wife, Adeline, move into Pringle's home—making life for her and her younger brother, Gideon, unbearable. Pringle runs away with Gideon to Chicago, seeking refuge from the tragedy and hoping to start a new life. However, she quickly finds herself caught up in a web of intrigue and lies. And when a familiar figure from back home arrives, Pringle begins to piece together the devastating mystery of what happened to her parents and realizes just how deadly the truth might be. But soon, one of the worst disasters this country has ever known—the Great Fire of Chicago—flares up, and Pringle is on the run for her life.
