The final book in the Little House series is my least favorite. The focus is on the first four years of married life for Almanzo and Laura. But, it isn’t written to the same standards as the prior installments and seemed to be an outline of a book versus one that was intended for publication.
It also paints a somewhat different picture of both characters. Laura isn’t quite the spitfire hard worker that we had come to love. And Almanzo never saw a loan he wasn’t willing to take. They both made some monumentally bad decisions and paid for them.
Just didn’t feel the love for this one. 3/5 stars.
