"Lydia is a little Amish girl who lives on a farm near Lancaster, Pennsylvania. All summer long Lydia has worked on a little hooked mat her first "piece" that must be finished before she can go to market with her father. She is busily at work on the first page of the book, but through the following pages in spite of her best resolutions, she is much more interested in the wagon coming down the road, in the stories that Granny tells, in stopping at Cousin Lavinia's, who " makes apple butter today," in calling on the new baby at Cousin Kate's, or even chasing Nate's runaway pig, almost anything in fact but the little hooked mat with its unfinished roses. But finally, the roses are finished and Henner's Lydia ends happily. "
