A Delightful Story Feb 27, 2002
Martha Morse is a lively lass, too lively to be laird's daughter. Her Mother, Grisie, and herself wait for Father to come, with a enchanting secret they can't wait to find out! Her relatives are moving to Fairlie, and Martha is bursting with excitement. Cousin Mary and Rachel, the youngest of the cousins, comes to stay with Martha and Nannie and Mollie and Cook and Father, while their home in Fairlie is remodeled. If you are a Martha fan or you liked Little House in the Highlands, you will most definitely like the second book in the Martha Years, The Far Side of the loch.

Martha can't wait for her Father to come home. When her Father comes home, he has a big surprise for her. This is a great book. Martha lives in Scotland. It is the second Martha book in the Little House series.
Great book! Sep 4, 2000
This is a great story of a young Scottish lass in the hills of Scotland who has many adventures while growing up. Some the Scottish brogue is hard to understand at times but if you work with it you get the hang of it. I love this book, along with all the other books about Laura Ingalls Wilder, her ancestors, and descendents. I never want the books to end! Great job Ms. Wiley!
Martha is Great! Jul 17, 2000
I loved this book, as I did all of the books in all the LittleHouse series. It's about Martha who has wonderful adventures, fromgetting a hedgehog, to waulking wool, pondering her nannys falling in love, and getting into trouble in the middle of the night. It's a winner!
Enchanting and Delightful Jun 10, 2000
The Far Side of the Loch is a magnificent and well-written sequel to Little House in the Highlands. I love the new adventures of Martha: from getting a new hedgehog to preparing for a new arrival: but that's a secret! All in all, The Far Side of the Loch is a wonderful book, and I hope that you make the right decision in reading this book. Och, ye'll be sorry if ye don't!
