"Leaf of Freedom" is the vibrant and inspirational story of Carol Emmons, a young, thoughtful, and sensitive Midwestern country girl. Against a backdrop of 1920's rural life, the reader will experience, along with Carol, her dreams, challenges, adventures, romance, and much more. Carol is an only child who lives with her mother and Civil War veteran grandfather on a small farm which her grandfather carved from the wilderness years before. Though her family is poor and of little formal education, Carol is rich in spirit and thought, and deeply senses and appreciates her environment and rural community. Her colorful descriptions of her everyday rural life, anecdotes, and her adventures are filled with right-on human insight. Carol interacts with many other characters, but is also introspective, loves to read, and sometimes fantasizes a glamorous life beyond her world. Eventually she realizes her real dream is to become a teacher. The reader will share Carol's life from age 11 to 17.
