When her older sister leaves home to become a schoolmistress in the small town of Stratford, Ontario, Mable is sent along too. Mable hopes her new world will be full of peril and romance. But life at the Goodhand Farm (where the sisters board), is as humdrum as the one she s left behind. Then Mable encounters the mysterious Mrs. Rattle, a peculiar widow with a taste for upsetting the townspeople with her strange opinions. Mrs. Rattle is a "real" writer, and Mable eagerly accepts her invitation to a meeting of the Ladies Reading Society.

Composed of the letters Mable sends home, the poems she writes for her classmates, and chapters from her own work-in-progress, "Mable Riley" is the funny, inspiring, (and reliable) record of a young girl finding her voice, and the courage to make it heard.
