Week 26: The Long Winter

The Long Winter, by Laura Ingalls Wilder

I went on a great trip this last week and read very little, but while I was at my friend's house I picked up her copy of The Long Winter. This has always been one of my favorite books of the series, because the incredible hardship and difficulty of the winter is so clear and vivid. It always makes me grateful for every single thing I've got. I always appreciate Laura's struggle to be cheerful and helpful instead of complaining; as the only truly able-bodied child of the family, it's very important that she help out as much as she possibly can.
