Laura, not yet sixteen, takes a job teaching school in a drafty shanty twelve miles from home. It's a terrifying job. Most of her pupils are taller than she is - and she has to board with a hateful, crazed lady. Laura is miserable, but she must help to keep her blind sister Mary in school. And every Friday, when the school week is over Almanzo arrives in his sleigh - come all twelve miles across the desolate icy slough to take her home to her family for the weekend. Could it be love? .
