Story Summary

Set in rural Kentucky, Nancy Davis and her family are so poor she can only dream of owning a beautiful dress from a mail order catalogue. When some money finally comes from the sale of their hog, Nancy decides her brothers and sisters need things more than her but her generosity is rewarded in a way she couldn't have imagined.
