This delightful children's book is based on Ann McKenzie, a real girl who lived in 18th-century Williamsburg. Nine-year-old Ann needs to start behaving like a proper young lady, learning to knit, cook, and manage a household, but she would rather assist her father, Dr. McKenzie, with his patients. Historical notes on Williamsburg, childhood, and medicine in the colonial period are incorporated in the story. By award-winning author Joan Lowery Nixon.
