Synopsis : Twelve-year-old Katy Carr lives with her widowed father and her five brothers and sisters in a small midwestern town called Burnet. Her father, a doctor, is very busy and works long hours.

Under these circumstances Katy, a bright, headstrong, hasty girl, can hardly avoid getting into mischief almost daily; however, she is unfailingly remorseful afterwards  She dreams of someday doing something « grand » with her life – painting famous pictures, saving the lives of drowning people or leading a crusade on a white horse.
