Maisie has never crossed the frightening old footbridge that separates her house from the nearest town. Then one night her sister Callie is badly injured, and Maisie must face her fear in order to fetch their mother, an herbal medicine healer. Discovering that there is more than one way to cross a bridge is the focus of this heartwarming tale.
