This was amazing: Lee, a second generation Vietnamese young woman and her search for a phenomenal connection between her family and a beloved American author.

William Morrow sent me a big box of pretty new hardcovers...so I built myself a little house of Caroline!

The First Four Years | Laura Ingalls Wilder

Mehso-so

This book is truly the Go Set a Watchman of the #lhop series. It was discovered in her papers after her death and only published after the death of Rose. Completely unedited or revised, this book is more a collection of brief memories with little description or linking besides the characters. I would like to see what this would have become with edits and revisions; it is truly a disappointment as it is. Also: is Almanzo a compulsive shopper? 👇🏻

drbethandherkindle Before re-reading I would have classified this as the Cursed Child of #lhop, but changed my mind given the whole found after death thing. Tell me your analogies Littens! 2y
LauraBeth 😂😂 this made me laugh! 2y
Daisey According to some research, Rose did major revision of the other books, but this one is just as Laura wrote it, thus the difference. For more information I recommend 2y

drbethandherkindle @Daisey Thanks! That one is on my list! I spent so much time reading this one imagining what if that it was even more of a let down. 2y
tpixie @Daisey interesting!! @drbethandherkindle I did not realize any of the books were edited by her daughter! I did love these books growing up but I have to admit that is one book that I bought and never read of hers. 2y
drbethandherkindle @tpixie You definitely made the right choice! I sort of vaguely knew about Rose's edits, but reading Pioneer Girl really makes that clear 2y
MaureenMc I think your analogy re: Watchman is spot on! 2y
tpixie I do have a thing against Watchman-like behavior - the family (or attorney or publisher) milking $$ off a dead writer. Maybe not a child as much, but a sibling, etc just no!! 2y
ReadingSusan That is a perfect description of it. 2y

If someone takes a picture of Melissa Gilbert holding your book, you must show it to the internet, right? Also: WOW.

This was always my least favorite of the series-it was so boring compared to the rest! Will that change as an adult reader? Stay tuned…

celtichik Can't wait to find out! It definitely has a different feel than the rest of the books. 2y

Little Town on the Prairie | Laura Ingalls Wilder

Today's #lhop anecdote: before I had corrective lenses, I once held either this book or The Long Winter so close to my face that I ended up with ink on my nose! In my defense, the print gets a lot smaller as Laura ages.

ValerieAndBooks How funny! Then, as we get older, we have the opposite problem -- our arms aren't long enough without glasses 🤓! Bifocals to the rescue. 2y
