Laura, only 15 and a schoolgirl herself, is apprehensive as this is both the first time she has left home and the first school she has taught.
This first school proves difficult for her.
Laura must board with the Brewsters in their two-room claim shanty, sleeping on their sofa. The Brewsters are an unhappy family and Laura is deeply uncomfortable observing the way husband and wife quarrel. In one particularly unsettling incident, she wakes in the night to see Mrs Brewster standing over her husband with a knife. It is a bitterly cold winter, and neither the claim shanty or the school house can be heated adequately. The children she is teaching, some of whom are older than she is herself, test her skills as a teacher.
Laura grows more self-assured through the term, and successfully completes the two-month term. To Laura's surprise and delight, homesteader Almanzo Wilder with whom she became acquainted in Little Town on the Prairie appears at the end of her first week of school in his new two-horse cutter to bring her home for the weekend.

Sleigh rides give way to buggy rides in the spring, and Laura impresses Almanzo with her willingness to help break his new and often temperamental horses.

On the last evening of singing school while driving Laura home, Almanzo — who has by now been courting Laura for three years — proposes to Laura.
During their next ride, Almanzo presents Laura with a garnet-and-pearl ring and they share their first kiss.
