Loved It Sep 24, 2008
This book was great, it was a little more interesting then the first one, and has many enjoyable chapters I think. I find all the characters in the Quiner family cute and enjoyable expect for the oldest sister, Martha. I also admired Caroline's mother's strength as he strives to run her family after her husband's tragic death. Her detirmination, her never ending courage and love really make me fond her and her entire family, particulary at he end of the book when they learn they are going to have to move from their home. The mother and everyone really show courage and I like that. I'm glad I got this book.

This is where Caroline, and her family are in Concord Wisconsin, but they along with the rest of the families who have habitated along this town, are working at building the small dwindling town, into a town that everybody would like to live in.
