Hi Kara — I’m so slow about answering these posts! Apologies. I have this book, but I haven’t read past the introduction. It seemed to me that the author uses “libertarian” as a pejorative term, and I just haven’t had the heart to pick up yet another smear campaign against Laura and Rose. I do need to read it, though, so will report back when I do. Did you end up reading it?
I did just read a little book on Mary Ingalls years at the Iowa College for the Blind. That was quite good. And I highly recommend a novel about Rose by Susan Wittig Albert.
