The Second Book of My favorite Series

by sbrod1 (WorldCat user published 2017-08-30) Excellent Permalink

This is truly my favorite series I ever read.  I love Farmer Boy!  Laura was able to capture her husband's childhood beautifully.  Full of adventure, excitement, day to day life for that era, and related to our current lives in a way that we can feel all of it.
