Some you feel you've known all your life, others you wish you did. I now have read all she's written, some many times over. This book makes me wish I'd had a sister to grow up with. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants an in-depth knowledge of sisters, love, and how life can be a rollercoaster ride. I struggled with the sexual aspect of the intimacy, and feeling like the author was being certain to preach safe sex by her frequent mention of the importance of condoms.
Despite caring about the characters, appreciating the small town NM setting, and relishing the role of horses and dogs, I felt as though the book was half novel and half Harlequin Romance.

The story really focuses on strong family relationships especially between two sisters with very different personalities.
The Wilder sisters: a novel
Feb 11, Erin72 rated it liked it Shelves: chick-lit. Something rather different to my normal reading taste, modern, but I was drawn to the sister bond. Actually rather interesting, but one area was left un-addressed. Generally I like to relate to the main characters on some level, one sister I did, the other was too diff to me.

It was my first book by Joann Mapson and understood the relationship between the two sisters. Jan 26, Judy rated it it was ok.
It was a bit too much romance novel for my taste. Not as good as "Finding Casey". May 18, Joelle added it.

Newsletters navigate down. Eighty years ago this year, Laura Ingalls Wilder penned the first draft of what would eventually become her first book, "Little House in the Big Woods. Since their original publication, none of the books have ever gone out of print. But the popularity of Laura Ingalls Wilder goes well beyond her books.
Laura Ingalls Wilder museums have been erected in many of the towns where Wilder once lived; there's the musical that debuted last year, based on the books; this week begins the first ever "Laurapalooza Conference" in Mankato, Minnesota What is it about "Little House on the Prairie" that we love, and why does it seem to be more popular than ever?
Helping us grapple with these questions is a very special guest: Alison Arngrim, who played villain Nellie Oleson on the TV series. She's also the author of a new book, "Confessions of a Prairie Bitch. Thank you, Rolenzo! In part, this disappointment was because Sisters in Crime had recently launched a diversity initiative of some ambition and had been taking a lot of the right steps to make their overwhelmingly white organization truly inclusive, so I had a lot of love and hope and high expectations for this organization of writers.

The angry comments in reaction to the award name change filled the listserv in an onslaught with only a couple of people for whom I am truly grateful speaking out against them. It looked so lopsided that I almost gave up hope for the organization. This was probably easier to do because of the dark political climate of the past two years—and especially the past week.
As all these stressors from the national stage pile up incrementally, it becomes easier to despair, and any kind of optimism becomes difficult to manage, creating extra impact for any local negativity, especially if it echoes the national trend of targeting Natives, people of color, people with disabilities, LGBTQ people, immigrants, Muslims, poor people, and women. It probably didn't help that I am housebound with a shattered right shoulder and other injuries connected to that. Injury and illness are depression's handmaids.
Hundreds of people in the mystery community and SinC responded to her post—all in support, save one.
