Set in the early 1970’s, Sophie Simpleton lives with and loves her animals, both domestic and wild, on her mountain which overlooks the ocean.

Nearly nine years old, she is the ugly duckling, the cinder-covered Cinderella, and the underdog. Loved by a growing number of eclectic individuals, but in the eyes of many, Sophie is un-extraordinary. 

Through a series of unfortunate events that occur to those who are her friends, and those who are her enemies, she surprises her critics by rising far above what they considered as un-extraordinary.
