I'm still loving the series, and I'm really enjoying seeing Laura and Almanzo's relationship begin. I found reading about the way people got together in those days really interesting, and she was so young!! As usual I loved her hard work and dedication in this book, and I liked that there was more focus on Laura's life and school and things rather that it all being about house building and what Ma's cooking (though you know I love that too!). I don't know if I'm just enjoying this series so much because it's such a gentle immersion in a place and time I know little to nothing about, but whatever it is it is so working for me. I will be so sad when this year is over!
I have to admit that I didn't really miss Mary in this book which kind of sounds awful but even before she couldn't see she was always just in the corner being good anyway so I don't miss her all that much. I enjoyed Laura's various run ins with Nellie Oleson this month - I do find her spirit and sense of injustice a very admirable and entertaining thing, and Nellie Oleson is just far too obsessed with herself for my liking.
As usual, not a huge amount to say about the book really, except that I continue to love it. This series is so comforting and such balm for the soul in turbulent times!
My link up for August will be a day late since I have my penultimate Middlemarch post going up tomorrow!
How did you find this book?
