How did I not know about this book before now?  I LOVE Laura Ingalls Wilder and have read and reread her Little House series many times.  I just happened to stumble on this sweet novel by her daughter at the library.  While Lane writes with a completely different style than her mother does, her writing can stand on its own.  Lane tells of Molly and David, married young, who travel to the Dakota Territory to claim their own homestead.  When their carefully laid plans fall through, David must return East to seek work, leaving 16 year old Molly to care for their son, and guard the homestead.  If you’re a fan of prairie fiction, you will love this book.

This book has been added to my “to buy” list.  I also discovered that there’s a movie version of the book too, but only available in VHS.  Maybe we’ll need to dig out our VCR…
