The Little House books have captivated millions of readers with their story of Laura Ingalls, a pioneer girl growing up on the American frontier. Now travel back two generations before Laura's and read the story of Charlotte Tucker, the young eastern girl who would grow up to move west to the frontier and who would become Laura Ingalls Wilder's grandmother.
Eleven-year-old Charlotte has always lived on Tide Mill Lane and can't imagine her home being anywhere else. She is delighted when a school for young ladies opens nearby. The prospect of a new baby brother and the sudden reappearance of a long-lost relative combine to complete Charlotte's world.
But a new dam connecting Roxbury and Boston turns Tide Mill Lane into a noisy, messy construction site, and Charlotte's parents are worried about what this will mean for their family.
Across the Puddingstone Dam is the fourth book in The Charlotte Years, an ongoing series about another spirited girl from America's most beloved pioneer family.
