In February 1852, notices are posted all over Chicago: “If you are an adventuresome young woman of high moral character and fine health, are you willing to travel to California in search of a good husband?” It sounds perfect to Maggie, so she and her little girl sign up, along with 43 other women,  for the California-bound wagon train led by two ministers.

Out of the Attic wastes little time moving the story forward, noting the wedding and the birth of Malcolm in a brief prologue, with the remainder of the story taking place five years later.
