I don't really associate this book with the rest of the "Little House" series for several reasons. First of all, it was published without the consent of Laura Ingalls Wilder or her daughter (and editor) Rose Wilder Lane. Second, it was only found after Rose's death, and for whatever reason, it was never finished. And lastly, it seems to lack the innocence and charm of the other books (perhaps because it was written without the help of Rose, or that it was simply meant for a more mature audience).

Still, it's an interesting and heartbreaking account of the first four years of Laura's marriage to Almanzo Wilder.
