Book seven of the "Little House on the Prairie" series. It is finally spring after a long and hard winter, Laura gets her first job in order to earn money for her blind sister Mary to go to a school for the blind. When she is let go in the summer, the rest of Laura's family bands together to earn more money for Mary, and are finally able to get the balance needed to send her away.

The coming fall after, Laura and her sisters attend school, where things turn hectic as a former nemesis of Laura turns the teacher against them. Luckily the matter is resolved, and there are new teachers at the school, one of which befriends Laura.

A bit of a "slice of life" for that time period. I found it very easy to relate to in a time of growing up and becoming an adult, going to school, and falling in love. The characters are loveable, and very easy to care about once hardships settle in. Recommended to those who like tales of growing up, as well as historical fiction (even thought these are true events in the author's life).
