    Description

    Includes a foreword written and read by Timothy Busfield

    The New York Times best-selling author and star of Little House on the Prairie returns with a new hilarious and heartfelt memoir chronicling her journey from Hollywood to a ramshackle house in the Catskills during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Known for her childhood role as Laura Ingalls Wilder on the classic NBC show Little House on the Prairie, Melissa Gilbert has spent nearly her entire life in Hollywood. From Dancing with the Stars to a turn in politics, she was always on the lookout for her next project. She just had no idea that her latest one would be completely life changing.

    When her husband introduces her to the wilds of rural Michigan, Melissa begins to fall back in love with nature. And when work takes them to New York, they find a rustic cottage in the Catskill Mountains to call home. But “rustic” is a generous description for the state of the house, requiring a lot of blood, sweat, and tears for the newlyweds to make habitable.

    When the pandemic descends on the world, it further nudges Melissa out of the spotlight and into the woods. She trades Botox treatments for DIY projects, power lunching for gardening and raising chickens, and soon her life is rediscovered anew in her own little house in the Catskills.

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

    loved it but not her political views, I wish it was just her life story and not her political opinions! her saying no one dies if they got vaccinated was so untrue I had to stop listening! she needs to check her statements before sharing this misinformation!

    Disappointing

    As someone who grew up, first, reading all of the Little House books, then watching it on TV. I was disappointed to learn that Melissa Gilbert was the polar opposite of the character she portrayed in the series. People that can't keep their politics at bay long enough to tell what should have been an interesting story, are just sad and miserable. She should have titled it "Why I hate Donald Trump and everything conservative" it would have saved me the thirteen bucks.

    Returned

    I am a huge fan of the LHOTP books and TV show. I was looking forward to listening to Melissa's new book on Audible. I finally had to stop listening about half way through, because of the political comments. I don't want to hear her opinions, her put-downs and her authority on Covid. I returned the book back to Audible - I'm not paying to listen to that! Huge disappointment!

    Great book, even better on audio — Half Pint 4 life!

    First off, of course you want to hear her voice and of course she’s a terrific actor. I got the book in hardcover and the audio because I had the credits and suspected it’d be a great listen. The book is touching, funny and very real. But it’s better on audio, IMHO. Sometimes I found myself listening to parts I’d already read but didn’t realize it because the telling of the story was so compelling.

    Liked the parts about aging and the fun stories about house/pandemic/animal stuff. It brought back a lot of memories of the pandemic and how we all coped. And so it’s an interesting time capsule.

    I see now the only people giving bad reviews are fans of the orange guy. It’s a shame. But I’m glad she’s bold enough to speak her truth. She’s one of the few stars who has universal appeal to many ages and geographical areas.

    Anyway the book is not super political, it’s just honest.

    Too political!!!!!!!!!

    Love Melissa & LHOTP but she sure promotes her extreme left political views. I am so glad I didn't have to pay for this audio book because I do not like to hear about how much someone hates President Trump. Just wanted to hear a nice story about her life. Very disappointed!!!

    Beautifully narrated with disappointing politics

    Melissa Gilbert beautifully narrates this story of her life. Her descriptions on finding peace and happiness in the country home with her husband, Tim Busfield, are honest and endearing. Her descriptions of what it was like when the pandemic lock down happened are relatable: the feelings of isolation, being afraid of the unknown, missing being with loved ones, shortages of food and supplies, etc.

    I liked her descriptions of renovating the modest country home she and her husband call The Cabbage. Her words paint a lovely picture of the seasons nature provides - the foliage, the animals, her gardens, her chickens, etc. Her stories about how she and her husband like the pace of life in the country so much more than the city were relatable.

    Where she lost me was how she shared her political views. I'm interested to read what others think but the way she frames her views comes off as "if you don't think like me you are confused and stupid." It is a common problem in this country today and I was disappointed that she fell into this pattern when expressing her views.

    Examples:

    *referring to "Donald Trump's Age of Alternative Facts."

    *She states, "Each day seemed worse and bleaker than the previous, and the scariest part for me was knowing we were not being told the truth. The virus was immediately politicized, which took it out of the realm of facts, and I sensed that, with the exception of Dr Anthony Fauci, the administration had a bunch of incompetents in charge." Gilbert definitely glorifies Fauci, even though many of the things he supported have turned out to be erroneous, too. She ends up idolizing Biden even though his administration is disastrous, too, but in a different way than the previous one.

    *Gilbert throws in the social issues related to the deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. She notes the protests but makes no mention of the many who used that time to loot and burn businesses. She demonizes the police, calling them stupid. Her blanket statements are ignorant and generalizations.

    *She refers to Trump as a "corpulent despot." It's okay to have an opinion but when a person starts this kind of name calling it leaves little room for respect. She would go from excellent storytelling of her personal life and then ruin it with this kind of narrative.

    *She states "Note to those calling me a Hollywood left right now: Compassion and kindness are not partisan issues, especially when you think a kid showing up to school hungry or your yourself are stuck on the side of the road." She is correct here but she loses credibility when her political rants in the book are very condescending and attacking from anyone who disagrees with her. This does seem to be common among many people who lean far to one way or another. They leave no room for a respectful difference of opinion.

    *Like many in the mainstream, she vilifies the destruction in the Capitol on January 6, 2021 but made no such comments about worse destruction that occurred for months in many cities following the death of George Floyd in 2020. All of it was wrong and divisive.

    *Her comments on the Covid vaccine are erroneous. She repeated what Fauci stated, that "Covid wasn't going to kill those of us who had been vaccinated...." That has been proven false since many have died either from the vaccine or from getting Covid while vaccinated.

    So so

    Just didn’t appeal to me. Happy she found happiness but really not interested in hearing her political cutdowns.

    Could've been awesome, too many social blindspots

    I've always loved Melissa Gilbert. We're the same age. I grew up watching her on Little House. Because of that,I felt a fond connection to her and enjoyed watching her, the way we love watching celebrities, over the years. I was looking forward to hearing about her new simplified life in the Catskills, and how she'd embraced aging. There's a lot of that, and I love hearing about it! BUT, it's interlaced with so much of her personal politics. My personal belief about political opinions, is they're like a certain body orifice, everyone has one and no one wants to hear about yours. That being said, I was willing to wade through, even though the first person insult about people who have a different opinion than hers. I figure half of the population leans more or less one way or the other. It's her book, her story, but really why would someone want to insult at least half of the people reading her book? It was as if she never considered that. And by saying insult I don't mean just giving her political opinion. She calls half of the population confused, and later she says they're brainwashed, basically too stupid to see the truth, her truth. ugh. When she got to brainwashed, I gave up. I actually paid to have someone insult my intelligence?
