This book was set in the late 1900's in Coal Harbour, British Columbia
Primroses parents go out to sea and never come back. She knows in her heart that they will come back, but everyone else seems to belive their dead
She runs into many problems, including losing a toe and suffering long hours listening to Miss Honeycut, the school counsoelor, tell boring stories about her life.
Will Primrose survive at all? And, most importantly, will she ever get to see her parents again?

Miss Honeycut - Primroses school counselor who doesn't actually help Primrose and just talks about her own life stories
