"Based on Rose Wilder Lane's unpublished diaries and letters, "A wilder rose" tells the surprising true story of the often troubled collaboration that produced eight beloved novels of pioneer life-- a collaboration that Rose and her mother, Laura Ingalls Wilder, concealed from their agent, editors, reviewers, and readers. In this impeccably researched novel, Susan Wittig Albert follows the clues that take us straight to the heart of this fascinating literary mystery."--back cover.

Too much speculation without proof, and some sections are almost word for word from Ghost in the Little House. Suggest reading Ghost in the Little House first.

I thought this book would be a mystery, but it is more a historical fiction book about who really did write the "Little House" books. It is more history than fiction. Making use of letters and diaries Wittig writes a very true story. Anyone who enjoyed the Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder will like this book.

Book based on Rose Wilder Lane's private journals, written during the Depression, while she was depressed. Some parts are almost word for word from William Holtz's "Ghost in the Little House."
May be confusing to read without some background knowledge.
