looking for a specific kind of book
« on: September 21, 2020, 07:13:15 PM »
I've just finished reading one of my favorite books, Nifty: Her First Hundred Years, by Rachel Field, and it left me wanting more. I'm looking for books that are siimilar, like Caddie Woodlawn or the Little House books, something that shows family life in the 1800s or early 1900s. Anybody know of any good ones?

Pretty much anything by Gene Stratton-Porter.  A Girl of the Limberlost is my favorite... . 
Lark Rise to Candleford is turning out to be really really good, also.
This is the day the Lord has made; let us be glad and rejoice in it.
Praise the Lord, for He is good, for His mercy endures forever
