Almanzo and Laura are now officially engaged. Laura, in her grown-up hair do is now more of a teacher's assistant than a student. She's excited about her upcoming marriage to Almanzo.

Almanzo is pretty excited too. He buys some land and plans to build a house, but the first thing he does it plant crops so he can pay the land off. To help at the Mill and with his chores, Almanzo asks a friend that he met in Sleepy Eye to help him out. Harve is a sweet, kind- hearted man and turns the head of Eliza Jane.

Eliza Jane falls madly in love with Harve. She writs about him in her diary, which, the the way looks old. That struck me as odd...

There's only one problem: Laura cannot ever teach because she's getting married. Laura is excited when she gets a letter accepting her as teacher for a job, but when she shows Almanzo, he is not excited so she throws the letter way.

A problem develops with the land, and the confrontation with the land owner is something to watch. I LOVE the scene where Charles confronts him...

A sub-plot is with newly married Nellie Oleson-Dalton. She is not feeling well, and though it's obvious to the viewer what's wrong, Mrs. Olsen doesn't have a clue. The result is rather humorous.
