    CHARACTERS ☆ Old Home Town Old Home TownIt was very well written which is what I have come to expect from this author It definitely gave me a feeling for how people lived in that era I wish I could give it 35 stars though Perhaps because of the format I felt there was a certain sameness to each of the stories I think there is a possibility that Let The Hurricane Roar was her masterpiece

    CHARACTERS ☆ Old Home Town Old Home TownLane really really didn't like the small town America in which she was raised and in particular she didn't like the lifestyle it forced upon the women living itThe first chapter is a beautifully written indictment of the nameless Midwestern town in which the story is set Parochial insular stuffy middle brow Wilder's old home town is obsessed with what is proper and especially what isn'tThe rest of the chapters are stories told by a young girl named Ernestine about other women who live there and most of them are pretty easily identifiable as wish fulfillment on the part of the author The old maid escaping seduction by town ne'er do well by her own pluck and the timely appearance of a new suitor The hired girl forced by gossip to marry the husband when the wife dies which ends about as

    CHARACTERS ☆ Old Home Town Old Home TownThis was a reread and I have to say it was just as enjoyable the second time around I have learned a little about Rose Wilder Lane and I can say that I wasn't surprised by her acerbic style of writing She is every bit as good a writer as her mother but my what a different attitude toward small town life

    CHARACTERS ☆ Old Home Town Old Home TownA fun historical read but even so if you are a fan of the Little House books by Rose's mother Laura Ingalls Wilder Rose wrote this book before her mother wrote and Rose heavily edited the Little House books so although the book is w

    CHARACTERS ☆ Old Home Town Old Home TownReally enjoyed this one as a good read in and of itself as well as a good look into Rose's life and impressionsThis is chick lit and a period piece really a gift from another time that is still relatable It's fascinating to see what was and was not considered proper behavior for a young lady around the turn of the century in rural middle America But as we learn these cultural nuances we also observe the many ways people manip

    CHARACTERS ☆ Old Home Town Old Home TownThis is the third Lane book I've read in a couple of months and after only marginally liking the first two I have to say I'm so glad I stuck with her This book made me laugh out loud and think about how far and yet not women have come in this country This was the first time I felt I really heard Rose's voice and HER story reflected in her writing Although highly fictionalized or maybe not I felt the characters and stories in this book about small town life and especially the women of the hometown came so much to life and were so much authentic because I felt that instead of telling s

    CHARACTERS ☆ Old Home Town Old Home TownThis here's the Little House book that wasn't Rose Wilder Lane is the daughter of Laura Ingalls Wilder and in 1935 she wrote this thinly veiled account of her home town of Mansfield Missouri It's not tied in with the Little House series but knowing readers will realize that Mother is no one less than Laura all grown up The book is an interesting peek at life in a small town around the turn of the 20th Century Ms Wilder doesn't make it sound too inviting the social conventions were stifling back then It reads like an alien culture to this 20th Century boy But the hopes and dreams of the characters are uite familiar It's uite an enjoyable read

    CHARACTERS ☆ Old Home Town Old Home TownI thoroughly enjoyed this book a collection of short stories about the residents of a small town at the turn of the century Her book focuses mainly on women specifically their lack of rights restrictions placed on women and their place in society if they did not marry Her bias against small towns and marriage shows throughout the book However her attention to detail gives a picturesue view of small town living Characters are well developed including the men It is worth reading


  • Laura Beth

    CHARACTERS ☆ Old Home Town Old Home TownAcuired this book on a kick to read anything Laura Ingalls Wilder related Took one star off because it wasn't the easiest to read Basically it's a collection of short stories about women's lives in the late 1800's early 1900'swhich I found fascinating Women in their early 20's seemed old maids thankful for the progress that has been made

    CHARACTERS ☆ Old Home Town Old Home TownI'm learning now in Prairie Fires that Old Home Town is only thinly disguised Mansfield Mo the townsfolk there didn't think too highly of it I would have liked it if I could read the chapters short stories in one sitting but they bord me too much to slog through
