We will pick up at the start of chapter 8. In the last episode, Heidi has only been living in Frankfurt at the grand Sesemann house for a day but she is already missing her mountain home with her grandfather. She mistakes the sounds of the street coaches for the wind racing through fir trees and runs outside. The stern Miss Rottenmeier has been trying to figure out a way to send Heidi back where she came from.
