This series by MacBride really is better than the pre-Laura series. More intense, more heartfelt, richer. Not quite enough to give it another star, mainly because now that I've read all that I own I don't feel the need to seek out more.

I did put a couple of book darts in bits I wanted to note:
[T]hey who forgive most will be most forgiven."

The series starts to wander in this book, and I was growing past the intended audience age, so for ten years this was where I stopped reading the series.
Now that I am going back through all my childhood books I am curious to finish this series. If I remember correctly, Rose's family is forced to move off the farm after a series of small disasters and live in town. ( )

(For some reason the Rainmakers' song "The Other Side of the World" has been running through my head ever since I picked up this book.) This is the fourth book of The Rocky Ridge Years series, chronicling the life of Rose Wilder in the 1890's. It's another book that's enjoyable to read, though not compelling. It's good waiting room material. Reading a straightforward biography of Rose Wilder Lane might be quicker than reading through this series, but I think this way is a lot more fun. ( )

One exciting thing after another happens at Rocky Ridge farm, but not all the excitement is good. A small cyclone does not cause much damage, nor does a fire, but they do cause Mama and Papa to realize that things will be tight if they stay on the farm. The family resolves that they will move to town and Papa will get a job while they wait for the apples to ripen. ( )

To my sisters Patricia and Pamela, whom I called Pots and Pans when we were all younger than Rose in this book. Never mind what they called me!
