Rose Mills, thinking she was lovingly placed in a stocking with her name on a piece of paper when her parents could not provide for her learns later that her name is simply the label of the stocking mill that made the sock! Rosie did not mind the orphanage so much, but she missed having a home to call her own. However, the methodology she chose to find it was quite outlandish in her day.....that of simply declaring herself an employee and jumping on a wagon heading to the Kansas prairie. Talented and witty, Rose quickly makes friends, but cannot even dent the hard shell of the man she works for in spite of the fact his 5 yr. old son adores Rose. Seth's wife is dead, and he did not even know he had a son until after the civil war was over....then when he claimed him, his dead wife's family set out to recapture the boy and/or kill Seth. Seth himself had not had a loving father, so he had no idea how to be one! The boy did not even know his Pa, so he gave him a hard time! Rosie was the only one the boy related to and Seth wanted no part of it! Rosie made her home in the crude barn with the animals, tilled the land, cooked the meals, cared for the boy and after the floating bridge was built....collected "tolls" from travelers without her employer's knowledge.....but saved him and his 2 closest friends from certain ruin by her ingenuity. A neighbor, a large German man courted Rosie and proposed marriage....as good an offer as she was likely to get and a promise of a home of her own for the very first time in her life. But something was not right....something was missing. When her 6 month "job" was finished, 20 yr. old Rosie put herself on a stagecoach bound for the return trip to the orphanage as a paid worker when the unimaginable happened. I can hardly wait for the sequel!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books I have EVER read...and I've read a ton, 17 Feb. 1999
By A Customer
This book is one of the few I read in one sitting. I couldn't bear to put it down!!! From the opening scene when Rosie is sitting in the tree to the time she boarded the stagecoach on her way back to the orphanage, I was captivated. I am hopeful of writing my own books someday, so I study the writing style of each book I read. And I loved Mrs. Palmer's writing style! Truly, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys quality fiction. And the message of Jesus Christ and His love was woven in so skillfully, it was truly wonderful. PLEASE, keep on writing Mrs. Palmer!!!! If you are thinking about this book but have not read it as of yet, I would recommend it STRONGLY!!!! stick it in your shopping cart and wait anxiously for it to arrive at your home! Or, run to your nearest Christian Bookstore and buy a copy TODAY! I will warn you, though, the third book in the series is not yet published. You will want to get the sequel, 'Prairie Fire' immediately,(Which was JUST as good as Prairie Rose) and then wait for TWO...LONG...MONTHS until the third is published. Beg, Borrow, or Buy a copy TODAY!!!!!!!!!!

This was a perfect escapism I read in a day; my reward after a busy half term of study. Believable characters and situations, with a feel-good ending. Highly recommend. Would definately read her other books in this series.
