Author(s): Laura Ingalls Wilder
Teaching at the Brewster settlement, miles away from her family, isn’t as exciting as Laura Ingalls had hoped and she is very homesick. The winter passes slowly and she has only rare drives in Almanzo Wilder’s new pony trap to look forward to.
As Laura leaves her childhood behind and turns to the responsibilities of earning her keep, her friendship with Almanzo blossoms into love and we say goodbye to the Ingalls family with a wedding.
