Laura, trying to put her heartache over Almanzo aside, travels to Sleepy Eye to find a suitable building for the School for the Blind, but sees a saloon girl coming onto her one-time fiancé and assumes the worst. Almanzo gets wind of Laura's efforts to reopen the school and works to the point of exhaustion to raise the money to rent the building from its cantankerous owner, Houston. Laura learns that Almanzo is very ill and rushes to be at his side. In the end, Almanzo is able to raise enough money to allow Adam and Mary to rent the building as the new School for the Blind. Charles' impression about Almanzo being a "fine young man" is also confirmed, and he softens his stance on when the wedding can take place. Meanwhile, Nellie quickly finds she is very talented and a hard worker in the hospitality industry, something which amazes the Ingalls. However, she has a major problem expressing her growing romantic interest in Percival. When Percy announces that he is leaving, all Nellie can... Written by Brian Rathjen <>

He loves me!
23 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Oh, what a wonderful way to end the sixth season of this wonderful show! I just love the Laura/Almanzo years!

In this second half, Laura arrives in Sleepy Eye to work on getting the rented building ready for the blind school. Almanzo makes himself known and they get into an argument. It soon becomes clear that the two are going to have trouble living in the same town together. But the real trouble starts when Laura witnesses Almanzo rubbing the back of a saloon girl! Laura's description of the incident shows just how innocent she is. She decides she cannot stay in Sleepy Eye for another moment.

The truth is, though, that Almanzo is showing his love for Laura and what she believes in by working his tail off. Tragedy strikes - it's a tragedy that finally helps the two realize just what they feel for each other!

Meanwhile, Nellie decides she is in love with her teacher and sets out to get him to see she's worthy for him to love her. Nellie worries about being tall, but her plan back-fired and almost sends a wedge between her and her man! Finally though, Nellie admits her feelings and the two kiss. What happens next? Well I'll leave that to be viewed!

Happily, in the end, Charles gives the Laura and Almanzo his blessing and even makes a compromise. I'm excited about Season 7.
