The Chloe Ellefson Mysteries
by Kathleen Ernst
Did you have a favorite book as a child? I had a handful: The Little House series, by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
|Much-loved books on display at the Masters Hotel in Burr Oak, Iowa.|
|The Banks of Plum Creek near Walnut Grove, Minnesota. The sign marks the original Ingalls dugout site.|
|The Surveyors' House, De Smet, South Dakota.|
|Replica of the House in the Big Woods, Pepin, Wisconsin.|
|Reproduction quilt by Linda Halpin.|
And, Roelke McKenna, my guy, wants to buy his family farm and share it with me. I'm not at all sure we're ready to live together, much less sink every penny into a neglected farm.
You can see how it all turns out in Death on the Prairie. But please don't let my misadventures stop you from getting out to see the sites yourself, if you can! I guarantee a happy return to childhood.
