A lot happens in this installment! It does cover quite a bit of time in the storyline, and you see how Laura is growing up, ever faster. Almanzo and Laura finally meet, though it was not a formal introduction as it should have been. We see a reappearance of Nellie Oleson, and she's as spiteful as ever! She's a character you love to hate! It's interesting to see Laura's transition to a town girl, and she mostly keeps the characteristics that I enjoyed when she was a younger girl. I'm eager to see where she goes from here!
