Virginia and her brother are never allowed to pick first from the donation boxes at church because their father is the priest, and she is heartbroken when another girl gets the beautiful coat that she covets. Based on the author's memories of life on the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota.
Virginia has outgrown her winter coat and hopes that one of the packages of donated clothing that arrive on the Sioux reservation at Christmas from congregations in New England will contain a coat in her size.
