This series tells of Rose's life. She is a rambunctious girl who is growing up with the times. She often does things she isn't suppose to, behind her parents back. I wouldn't recommend the books for a really young audience, but for pre-teen to teen, these books are great.
You learn more about the changes in history and inventions appearing. It also sheds light into the life of Laura as an adult, raising a daughter and living the farmer lifestyle. They are not written in the same manner of the Laura Ingalls Wilder series, but they are still a good read.
I've read it several times but each time there is one point that really bugs me. Since I have been reading the Little House series plus Ingalls family biographies since I was in the fifth grade, I am very familiar with the life of Laura and her family.
It is always a source of annoyance when someone(sited as an expert) writes about a particular subject but makes glaring errors and mistakes about situations and the characters.
This book offers a prime example. I noted an error that should have been caught by either the author or an editor.
To wit: Almanzo brings home a Sears & Roebuck catalog in which people can mail order merchandise from the catalog. Wow! A new discovery in shopping! Laura nor Almanzo remembers living in South Dakota and looking through a Montegomery Ward catalog(mail-order) and purchasing a set of glassware or Laura purchasing a saddle for her pony from the Montegomery Ward catalog. This information was provided in the book The First Four Years also carrying Roger Lea MacBride's name. One of the pieces from the glassware set was the bread platter etched with the words 'Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread'.
Of course MacBride died and his daughter had taken over the writing at this point. But still, I think it is shameful when a fan knows the subjects and details better than the "experts".
The listed author for this book (MacBride) died before the last few books were published and whether he had anything to do with the books is questionable.
This series is okay as light reading for adolescents but if you are looking for a piece of americana, and/or a wholesome book for your child this is not the best choice. It grossly fails to live up to the original series of books. The Caroline series is a better choice.
I was very happy to add this to my book collection!
