This one does end on a bit of a cliffhanger. Since they are such quick reads, even though they're not all that special, I think I'll see if the others are avl thru my library. Oh but it was sad to see them cut down those glorious old trees. I know, it was what was done, but still. ( )

Caroline’s family has had to leave their home in Brookfield to move to a new homestead in Wisconsin. It is largely unfinished, and the family must struggle to clear the woods and make it home. When the garden fails, they get a job cooking for the men working for a nearby rich man, but it isn’t easy work. In the end their little cabin becomes a little home. ( )
