Prairie Lotus

14-year-old Hanna stands out in Dakota Territory in 1880: the half-Asian girl draws stares and prejudice wherever she goes. When she and her widowed father settle in LaForge, Hanna hopes to attend school before becoming a full-time dressmaker working in her father's dry goods shop. As she sets about to realize her dreams of getting an education and making at least one friend, Hanna draws on memories of her half-Chinese, half-Korean mother's quiet strength to persevere through the challenges she encounters.

Award-winning author Linda Sue Park was inspired by her love of Laura Ingalls Wilder to create this story that skillfully explores the experiences of minorities on the American frontier, while also capturing the homey details that made the Little House books so popular. Narrated by Hanna, Prairie Lotus has poignant moments yet sparkles with humor, introducing a captivating heroine whose wry, observant voice will resonate with readers.
