Book Review: A Prairie Girl's Faith

Sunday, December 24, 2017

Author: Stephen W. Hines
Summary from Goodreads: 
The beloved author of the Little House books was not only one of America's great pioneer storytellers but a woman of vibrant faith.

A Prairie Girl's Faith provides the first extended, in depth discussion of the Christian faith of one of America's most beloved pioneer women--Laura Ingalls Wilder. Although the faith of the Ingalls' family pervades books in the Little House series, the more specific details of Laura's faith have never been fully explored. It took extraordinary pluck for anyone to survive the harshness of frontier life--from the heartbreak of sudden crop losses to murderous storms to unrelentling loneliness. This book reveals how in surviving, the brave Laura drew not just on her character, but found encouragement, strength, and hope in her relationship with God.

Personal Review:
I picked this book up because I had grown up watching Little House on the Prairie and was familiar with Laura Ingalls Wilder. I always knew it was based on a real person, but to get the details of her was informative and interesting.

I appreciated that the author shared about how tough it was to grow up in the time that she did and to experience what she had experienced. Life was not easy.

I really enjoyed this book. Thanks for the opportunity!

Happy Reading!
