The Little House books have captivated millions of readers with their story of Laura Ingalls, a little pioneer girl growing up on the American frontier. Now travel back two generations before Laura's and read the story of Charlotte Tucker, the little eastern girl who would grow up to move west to the frontier and who would become Laura Ingalls Wilder's grandmother.
The war of 1812 is over, and Charlotte thinks life in Roxbury is finally back to normal. She's excited because Will and Lucy have moved in with her family, and Charlotte adores looking after Lucy's baby. Before long, however, Charlotte feels like her world has been turned upside down. Baby William seems to have taken over her house, and Mama and Lucy are always busy taking care of him. To make matters worse, Charlotte has a new teacher at school -- will her life ever be the same again?
The Road from Roxbury is the third book in The Charlotte Years, an ongoing series about another spirited girl from America's most beloved pioneer family.
