Storyline

Believing that her jealousy was responsible for her infant brother's death and that her parents would rather have a son than a spare daughter, Laura climbs the highest hill she can find, hoping to get as close to God as possible to ask Him to take her instead and return the baby boy to the family. While Charles and Mr. Edwards desperately search for her, Laura meets Jonathan, a mystical mountain man who seems to have been sent purposely to guide her through this life-changing experience.

Quotes

Laura Ingalls: Dear Pa, I can't write what's in my heart because I can't get the words to come out at the end of my pencil. I did a bad thing by having mean thoughts, but I know how I can make it right again. I can't tell you the rest because it's just between me and God. I will always remember today. I love you all. Laura.

Not one of my faves
15 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A lot of people find this two-part episode as their favorite in all of Little House on the Prairie. Though I think the first part is great, I'm just not too thrilled with this second part.

It starts with Laura running away. She gets it in her head that God took away her brother because of her not wanting him to get better. She succeeds at leaving in the middle of the night and making it all the way to a high mountain. She prays to God, asking Him to take her and leave her brother for her Pa. When she wakes up, there's a big man named Jonathan. He stays and takes care of her.

I think the whole running away thing and asking God to take her is a bit ill-contrived. I just cannot believe that something like this would ever really happen. First of all, I don't think a child and conceive something like that, and second of all...well, I just don't believe it. Jonathan is apparently some sort of angel - and I have a bit of trouble with that as well. Like I said, it's just not one for me...

Then after being gone for three days, she sees her father and doesn't want to run to her father. She runs away from him instead...

The revealing scene is pretty sweet, as is the scene where father and daughter reunite.
