Ages: 9 and Up
This book was good. Definitely a big change from the previous book in the series, The Long Winter. I found this book in particular to be very happy and warm. Only a few bad events occur in this book, and even then it's nothing too serious. I am very excited to read the next book in the series and find out what happens to the Ingalls family next.
Laura Ingalls is 15 years old now and is living a pleasant life with her family in town. The terrible blizzards are gone and Laura makes new friends in school. She and her family finally have raised enough money to send Mary to college, and Laura tries to earn her teaching certificate. Along the way, Laura goes to her first social, and gets acquainted with Almanzo Wilder. Finally she has come to enjoy her life in town, with all that it has to offer.
