I really liked this book! I own the whole series and I recommend this! After this there is one more book in The Little House Series then after that you can read Laura's daughter Rose's books. Those are not written by Laura, but they are still nice to read on about the Wilder family. I read all the Little House and Rose Years books....all really good. I have read the older comments, and yes I agree Almanzo was a lot older than Laura...I wish he had been a little younger, so that they could have both gone to school with each other...but I guess it was common for the guy to be older than the girl. I guess that why her parents weren't that too surprised or totally rejected their daughter dating this older guy.
