What’s a merchant’s daughter to do once she immigrates to a land of opportunity? Why, start a business. Or more than one.
Sarah Ocampo was her father’s right hand “man” as he had no older son. She helped manage all his properties, which included chasing bandits who threatened them. She had learned much from him, and it near broke her heart when she decided she had to leave him. Now she can honor him by putting all she’d learned to use. With a WEE bit of help from the librarians of Grantville.
The country in and around Grantville is generally peaceful. But there are always some who would rather rob other’s businesses than work their own.
They should have left the businesses of “the African Princess” alone. They really should have.
