Women's Fiction Historical
In this novel authorized by the Little House Heritage Trust,
Sarah Miller vividly recreates the beauty, hardship, and
joys of the frontier in a dazzling work of historical
fiction, a captivating story that illuminates one
courageous, resilient, and loving pioneer woman as never
before—Caroline Ingalls, "Ma" in Laura Ingalls Wilder’s
beloved Little House books.
In the frigid days of February, 1870, Caroline Ingalls and
her family leave the familiar comforts of the Big Woods of
Wisconsin and the warm bosom of her family, for a new life
in Kansas Indian Territory. Packing what they can carry in
their wagon, Caroline, her husband Charles, and their little
girls, Mary and Laura, head west to settle in a beautiful,
unpredictable land full of promise and peril.
The pioneer life is a hard one, especially for a pregnant
woman with no friends or kin to turn to for comfort or help.
The burden of work must be shouldered alone, sickness tended
without the aid of doctors, and babies birthed without the
accustomed hands of mothers or sisters. But Caroline’s new
world is also full of tender joys. In adapting to this
strange new place and transforming a rough log house built
by Charles’ hands into a home, Caroline must draw on
untapped wells of strength she does not know she possesses.
For more than eighty years, generations of readers have been
enchanted by the adventures of the American frontier’s most
famous child, Laura Ingalls Wilder, in the Little House
books. Now, that familiar story is retold in this
captivating tale of family, fidelity, hardship, love, and
survival that vividly reimagines our past.
