Eleven-year-old Triffie Winsor has always had the best of everything and has taken her happy life for granted. In a single day, on July 8th, 1892, that changes forever as fire sweeps through her hometown, St. John's, Newfoundland, destroying her home, her school, the family buisness and the Church of England Cathedral. Overnight, Tiffie's comfortable world is gone and she must face a new reality. Like hundreds around her, Triffe now has next to nothing.
