Caroline Quiner is a 7-year-old growing up in Wisconsin.  The year is 1845 and the Quiner family has just survived through a hard winter with little food.  Things are looking brighter for them as they plant their crops and look forward to the harvest to come.  Caroline and her sister must spend the summer months in school.  Boys attend during the winter when they are not needed on the farm.  The girls attend during the summer months when the boys are working in the fields.  Caroline loves school and does very well.  This story is the second volume in a series of books about Caroline's life.  We follow Caroline from the 4th of July through Christmas.  Find out what Caroline's life was like before she grew up to become Laura Ingalls Wilder's mother.
