Caroline: Little House, Revisited
By  Sarah Miller
HarperCollins
October 2017

Ask any man or woman of a certain age and they will say that they have at least a passing familiarity with the story of Laura Ingalls Wilder and her family, either from the classic series written by Wilder, or from the popular television series of the 1970’s. In Caroline, Little House, Revisited author Sarah Miller examines one period of the Wilder family’s history, when they journeyed to Kansas to settle and claim land in that new territory.

The narrative comes from a new source, that of Caroline Quiner Ingalls, mother of Laura, Mary, Carrie, Frederick and Grace. The pioneer adventure of the family takes on new relevance and meaning when seen through the eyes of a wife and mother who has known hardship and hunger in her life, and who means to keep her children from that fear and hunger. Caroline is a woman who deeply loves her husband, and their marriage is indeed a partnership, even as Charles Ingalls moves the family throughout the Midwest, dreaming of the perfect homestead for their family.

Although this book covers a brief period in the Ingalls’ family history, readers will come away with a strong sense of Caroline as wife and mother and how she rose to meet the challenges placed before her. Caroline was a woman of deep faith and drew upon that faith often as she faced the trials of traveling through and living on the mostly unsettled prairie. The family ultimately traveled back to their original homestead after some setbacks, but their time in Kansas had a significant impact on their lives as evidenced in the “Little House” series.

Caroline, Little House, Revisited is beautifully written, lyrical and evocative prose that transports readers to the scene with ease, be it the wide, sweeping grasses of the prairie or a rushing, deep river that must be traversed with horse and wagon. Author Sarah Miller has captured the spirit of a strong pioneer woman and put it to paper for us here and now in the twenty-first century, to read, digest and reflect upon. Travel back in time and meet Caroline Ingalls – you won’t be disappointed.
