Ad this book over and over again it s so cute and feel sy good y and so easy to read too I think I actually might Renovate: Changing Who You Are by Loving Where You Are like this series better than the Laura series but by only aittle mind you Martha is so Gaffer love able and all her family The Stone House sounds exactlyike somewhere I would want to Circumstantial Evidence live with the high bed and cosy kitchen and right next to a bigake The stories that are told about faeries and brownies are so much fun to read I ve actually used them to entertain my ittle sister when we were waiting for something and she was getting restless So yes I totally recommend this book It s simply charming This is a very fictionalized story of Laura Ingalls Wilder S Great Grandmother Martha Morse She S The Daughter Of great grandmother Martha Morse She s the daughter of Laird which is true in Glencaird on Loch Caraid neither of which is a real place Her four siblings are all older than her Thus being the youngest and only 6 years old it makes sense that she s confused when it comes to pregnancy talkThis book takes place in 1788 so America is nearly as old as Martha I do think it s odd that they call it America Not the United States of AmericaI m not a history person so I could be wrong but I think the book should have included the entire nameI ike the simplicity of the times Martha s father is a Laird who won t even add rooms to their stone house something Martha thinks is above and beyond even knowing stories of other Lairds until it s necessary He is kind to the cottagers who ive on his and when there is a new bairn the females in his family go to visit them Martha and her siblings play with their childrenThe Gaelic A Chicken in Every Yard: The Urban Farm Store's Guide to Chicken Keeping language makes me smileI find it strange that they call the cook CookI have to chuckle at how superstitious they all are even the adults They believe fairies may take away beautiful babies a fear I understand that Browniesive in homes and can turn into boggarts which I also get but believing a baby who holds onto a coin will grow up to be a miser makes me roll my eyes They re probably misers because everyone told them they would be as they grew up YeeshI completely understand misers because everyone told them they would be as they grew up YeeshI completely understand they wouldn t bring the baby out of the home immediately or even say the name aloud before the christening The Island of the Lost Horses (Dora and Friends) latter is even seen with Saint John the Baptist in the Bible coincidently it s the Solemnity of the Nativity of him on the day I ve begun the bookThat there may be changelings made meaughI Summer Meditations love that Lairds had their own personal piper The thought of bagpipes sweeping over the shepherdands makes me feel peacefulAnd I feel gay that s the best word I could come up with gaiety reading of the traditions surrounding a baby s christening It s just beautifulBrownie Pete makes me God Said, Ha!: A Memoir laughIike that the tenants daughters were allowed to be in school during the summer with the boys I wonder if that was truly the case in the 1780sAccording to Melissa Wiley Martha married beneath her station So it makes sense that she s a bit rebellious and much ike Laura in that she tends towards boyish things and hates to sew Still sometimes the parallels are sometimes tiringThe mention of Culloder and Rising of 1745 was ike clickbait for me I m not a history person at all but all the. Her is Laird Glencaraid and the On the Right Side of a Dream life of the Laird's daughter is not always easy for aively girl ike Martha She would rather be running barefoot through the fields of heather and istening. ,

Better than I expected I still think these preuels or whatever you want to call them are uite a bit of a stretch in that I believe they are all pretty much fabrications based only on the time and place where Laura s mother grandmother or great grandmother grew up personally i really just grandmother grew up Personally I really just them as historical fiction and I suppose if the thread to the Little House books gets young readers reading that s worth it Author Melissa Wiley had this to say We don t know much about the real Martha what Operation Iceberg : The Invasion and Conquest of Okinawa in World War II little we do know is from aetter written by Laura s sister Grace Ingalls Dow Grace wrote that her great grandmother Martha Morse was the daughter of a Scottish Arrows of the Night: Ahmad Chalabi's Long Journey to Triumph in Iraq laird who married someone the family considered beneath her station We know that Martha and Lew married in Boston on Jan 1 1799 So as for a work of historical fiction this is a pretty good read for the younger chapter book crowd I personally enjoyed the Highlands setting as my own great grandmother s family was from Scotland and I visited Scotland some years ago Some of the accents may be a bit tricky for read aloud or for emerging readers to decipher on their own but they sure add aot of Michelin Green Guide Normandy local color to the story It was interesting to read about some of the customs and superstitions of the day Martha is aikable character and no doubt modeled a bit on Laura since she enjoys being outside and getting a ittle muddy sometimes even though she s not supposed to I also found it fascinating how truly modest by today s standards was the Scottish aird s ife and home It s a fairly uick read and some of the side characters really made an impression My 6 12 year old son really enjoyed this and wants to read in the series My children and I have enjoyed this series Of course it isn t written by Laura Ingalls Wilder but "the book does much of her spirit "book does catch much of her spirit of the best first books in the series sets And it s set in Scotland adding a new twist Super fun I was a ittle skeptical about this imagining of Laura Ingalls Wilder s great grandmother s Scottish childhood but it turned out to be uite ovely I have no idea how much of it is based on fact other than the character names ocation social position but if it s just this is the way her What Every American Should Know About the Rest of the World life might have been that works as well The author put in aot about daily I Got a New Friend life in 18th century Scotland including not just how to spin but beliefs about fairies and brownies and recountings of tales and songs Her descriptions of the countryside are simple butyrical and don t make the mistake of seeming nostalgic this is a The Real Lincoln: A New Look at Abraham Lincoln, His Agenda, and an Unnecessary War little girl reporting herife at the moment not as she remembers it when she s an adult For example although I ove Richard Peck I think his books often fall into that trap The only thing I would have changed about this book would be to add some kind of main story arc to all the episodes just to make it cohesive although since the original Little House books didn t completely have that I suppose I shouldn t complain This book is completely adorable From the time I set eyes on it I knew I was going to ove it The whole Martha series is amazing but this book is the best one in the series I ve read and re re.
