Tilda Jane is a rambunctious orphan in search of a home, fleeing the orphanage that won't allow her to keep her rescued dog. Her independence and strong will bring her trouble and adventures that straddle the Canadian-American border. Ultimately, she arrives in Ciscasset, Maine, to work for the elderly, irritable Hank Dillson.

Tilda Jane is a compelling story of self-discovery by Marshall Saunders, an author renowned for her commitment to a better life for children and animals. Published before L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables, these fictional orphans are both on a quest to find a home.
