This book is what I am reading to my grandmother. She is still recovering from the brain bleed that happened in January. She has recovered a lot, she still has some problems from it. Last night she asked me to read to her. It is the love of books that she instilled into me. She can't see to well either. I am going to do the Little House series next cause that is what we both enjoy so much.

dabbe Your grandmother is very lucky to have you. Wishing her a continued recovery.

I really wanted to love this book, because I watched Melissa Gilbert as Laura growing up. For 276 pages it took me three days to finish this book. I have almost DNF the book a couple of times cause I was getting bored with it. It had some great parts in it. But some of it was annoying to me. I rated this book a 3 out of 5 stars.
