    One thought on “On Top of Concord Hill

    1. So Charlotte gets married in this book, which I m pretty sure is not a spoiler at all I hope The whole thing is a leeetle awkies, but it s like a natural awkies If that makes sense Mr Holbrook is a lot different from the whole family, actually, but in the following book he finally seems to fit in Also, Henry gets obsessed with the gold rush and basically becomes a jerk Which is sad because I like Henry Henry and Mr Holbrook start on rocky ground, but several incidents help to repair their relati [...]


    2. I haven t read this yet BUT I just learned to night that Caroline Quiner who became Caroline Ingalls grew up about five miles from where I work I ve been captivated by the Mansfield, Missouri, home and museum of laura ingalls wilder but I didn t know I was so close to where her mom grew up and where her parents met Sorry not much of a review like why I want to read this book


    3. I am a huge fan of the Laura Ingalls stories The tried and true Laura stories are by far my favorites, but when I came across stories of her great grandmother all the way down to her daughter, I was thrilled.



    4. Little House on the Prarie is one of my favorite kids series, and I am enjoying reading all of these prequels.


    5. This book begins with the Camp Meeting mentioned in the previous book Caroline looks for different signs that her mother is ready to marry Frederick Hollbrook, but everyone s concentration is ruined by Reverend Speakes The man is a bit of an extremist, calling out sins in a terrifying way though I m a bit surprised Caroline was never told things like gossip were sins , saying dancing was a sin, and then screaming out for people to repent It saditional for hyperbolic to make preachers religious f [...]


    6. It was neat to see how the family has come out of particularly difficult times and is doing better Mother remarried, and that brought changes to the family s life The kids continue to grow up and adjust to their new life in a new place I m looking forward to the next books as Caroline really begins to come into her own.


    7. Loved this book, its wonderful to see how Caroline s mom is smiling now and how the family gets fond of Mr Holbrook and


    8. I am reading re reading all of the Little House stories in order this year see my comments under Beyond the Heather Hills and Across the Puddingstone Dam.I have been writing reviews comments about these books at the end of each series I have decided, though, to write a review halfway through the Caroline series because after On Top of Concord Hill the series is no longer written by Maria D Wilkes which is such a terrible shame.I have been looking forward to reading these books so long as I am a [...]


    9. So I hadn t read this one I confused this book with Little House in Brookfield Oh well This one was quite special and also a little nervewracking Boy, if you don t plan on seeing a portion of this through to the end, you re going to worry your little butt off I have to do some mapwork, but I got really excited because I could say Oconomowoc All of the sewing has me itching to do some sewing And knitting And embroidery THIS ONE IS A VERY IMPORTANT POINT IN THE STORY Well, if you re not a complete [...]


    10. This is the fourth book in the Little House books Caroline series As with the others this fourth book was better than the first due to already knowing the characters and being able to just enjoy the storyline and being there in the moment with them A simple but heartwarming easy read, perfect to help drift your mind into another time and place before you have to go to bed Love these books In this book Charlotte and her children adjust to having a Pa around after Charlotte marries one of the work [...]


    11. Honestly this was a book I really got into of the Caroline series for the most part I haven t been overly immerse myself in this series, but this book I really did Charlotte Quiner gets remarried in this book and that inspired me to fact check the author and she was completely correct Then from there I just kept researching Laura Ingalls Wilder genelogy I learned so many things because this novel inspired me to fact check I love Laura and her family so I was glad to be educated about the Quiner [...]


    12. My only complaint about this entry in the series is that you really need to have read the one before it to get to know Mr Holbrook better I accidentally read this one first, and while the narrator said Caroline was glad about Mr Holbrook s relationship with her mother, I didn t buy it from what had been written about him thus far in this book She seemed rather ambivalent about him, finding all his flaws you have to read the other book to find out the nice things about him.


    13. I like this Caroline book but it seems to be a little sad because its hard for her family to adjust to their new pa Also the family gets sick with cholera which ends up leaving them very weak for awhile and their new Pa s legs get weak because of how badly he came down with the cholera The ending though is good because the whole family now gets along Caroline is now looking forward to a new beginning and the growth of their little farm in Concord, Wisconsin.


    14. The one thing I like about these stories is that, as they are based in fact, there is no promise of happy endings When sickness comes into the house, there is no promise that people will survive This adds an element of suspense that I wasn t expecting, and I enjoy it This one delves a little deeper into the family dynamics as things are changing and the children are growing up Enjoyable read as I have come to expect.


    15. The excitement of this book is that ma Charlotte marries Frederick Holbrook which provides stability for the family, support and companionship for ma, and a new pa for the 6 children The drama continues when Pa and Henry bring home cholera from the market and most of the family becomes ill No one dies Henry has the most difficulty adjusting to his new pa and is tempted to join the California gold rush, but harmony returns to the home by the end of the book.


    16. This book was a fun read but nothing truly significant happens in it I would greatly encourage Little House fans to read the whole little house series beginning with Laura s great grandmother, Martha, and ending with Laura s daugher, Rose It was so much fun reading about the different times these women lived in Rated three stars because it is way below my reading level so it is a entertaining fast read.


    17. Really enjoyed this book, probably my favorite of the series so far I d definitely like to own the series to share with my own children in the future it s a shame it s out of print I can see why these books are so popular with home schooling families as well you can do whole unit studies with them from biology using gardening to teach science to math with baking, bean counting, etc and character education along with the obvious reading and writing.


    18. I thought this was a good book There was a Camp Meeting and Caroline said to her Mother, Is dancing really a sin But her Mother replied, No Caroline I would never teach you something that is a sin Mother didn t like the Camp Meeting and the next day the family did not go.


    19. I do enjoy these books, but I can t help feel dirty for it since they mostly exist for the publisher to make money on a known franchise, so I feel guilty for enjoying the stories.






    20. The best part is getting to know Caroline s step father the dull part was discussion of the work involved surrounding the mill Highlights also include illness in the family Grandma.
