9780064405812: New Dawn on Rocky Ridge (Little House Sequel)

It’s a big year for thirteen-year-old Rose and her family as they witness the turn of the century and, after years of hard work, experience their first apple harvest out on Rocky Ridge farm. And as her feelings for Paul grow stronger, there are even signs of romance in the air for Rose. It’s a time for new beginnings in New Dawn on Rocky Ridge, the sixth book in the Rocky Ridge series continuing the story that Laura Ingalls Wilder told of her own childhood, a story that has charmed generations of readers.

About the Author:

Roger Lea MacBride, a close friend of Rose Wilder Lane's, was the author of the Rose Years novels.

Dan Andreasen has illustrated many well-loved books for children, including River Boy: The Story of Mark Twain and Pioneer Girl: The Story of Laura Ingalls Wilder, both by William Anderson, as well as many titles in the Little House series. He lives with his family in Medina, Ohio.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6?This warm, comfortable narrative continues the story of Rose Wilder's life from age 13 through 16 in Mansfield, Missouri, with her parents Laura Ingalls and Almanzo Wilder. Written by Rose's adopted grandson and heir, the book draws heavily from the woman's recollections of her own life and the stories her mother told her. It begins with the people of Mansfield celebrating the turn of the century. Much is made throughout the book of technological and social progress, as life changes ever more rapidly. Rose finds herself falling in love with Paul, who has been her best friend and who, being older, leaves town to work in Iowa as a telegrapher. The puzzle of relationships with the opposite sex is a continuing theme, whether in Rose's feelings for Paul, an old-maid school teacher being strung along by the local playboy, or Rose's friend who takes up with a "traveling man." Historical context is important to the story, from changing dress fashions to the dawn of socialism. Rose's aunt E.J., an early feminist, is an especially intriguing character. All of the figures are well drawn and engaging. Laura's return to South Dakota to tend to her dying father will tug at the heartstrings of readers who enjoyed the "Little House" books. MacBride's narrative is heavily episodic, as was Ingalls's; indeed, the style is a near match, and makes this a worthy continuation of that series. It stands alone as well, as an insightful portrait of a teenage girl in the earliest 1900s, with feelings and experiences not so different from those of the 1990s.?Joyce Adams Burner, Hillcrest Library, Prairie Village, KS
