Laura Ingalls Wilder is widely loved as the author of the Little House books that detail her life growing up in woods and on the prairies that were the frontiers of her time. Yet unknown to readers and publishers of the time and even until recently, Laura?s daughter Rose had a substantial hand in crafting those stories for children. Rose was a well-recognized writer on her own, and it was she who encouraged her mother to write, then substantially cleaned up her stories so they were fit for publication. In A Wilder Rose: Rose Wilder Lane, Laura Ingalls Wilder, and Their Little Houses, author Susan Wittig Albert fictionalizes this real-life story while shedding light on the lives of both Laura and her daughter.

Ruby is aghast to discover that she doesn't know everything after all, but Dean offers her subdued comfort.
That said, I still don't understand the seething animosity toward LIW in books that focus on the life of Rose. After the rejection her mother allowed Rose to edit it. I'm a big fan of both Laura Ingalls Wilder's stories and Rose Wilder Lane's writings. Thus the vast majority of the narrative is in her first person voice which makes it sound much like a memoir. We can enjoy them by understanding that both of these women lived through hard times and created stories that endure.
After Free Land 1938she wrote no more fiction under her own name. She deserves the credit for helping her mother write the books. Bennett keeps all these plot threads thrumming and her social commentary crisp.
So if anybody suspected anything at the time, nobody was going to blow the whistle. So I have no issue with the premise that Rose did the work, and why.
Ingalls Wilder is probably one of the most known children author thanks to her fictional retelling of her childhood. It would have been unprofessional.
If you're a LIW fan you might want to skip it though.
It was also of interest to read about Rose Wilder Lanes life.
She writes her two most critically-acclaimed books herself during these years.
