Episode One: Before Dawn
Although Harriet Van der Berg loves her family, it can be hard to know where she fits in with them. With parents and a brother who are all athletically gifted, she sometimes feels like she hasn’t quite found her place yet. As Harriet thinks about times when she has shown leadership, her mind travels once again to the Windward as she wonders: what would it be like to be captain of that ship? It takes just a moment for a magical event to lead her to a new adventure where she might just find out.
