Huldah Hartz is a curious girl who loves to watch the butterflies and grasshoppers. The flowers around her new home are pretty, especially the ones that grow close to the dark woods, where Papa and Mama say she must not play.
When Bessie the cow wanders away, Huldah is sent to find her and bring her home. But Bessie doesn't want to come and Huldah doesn't know which way to go when night falls. How will she find her way?
What did you love best about The German Girl?
I'm reading through the First Children of Farmington series, and so far this is my favorite, probably because my ancestry is German. Young Huldah strays from her property as she looks for the family cow. She loses her way in the woods and cannot make it home on her own.
The book is written for children, but as an adult listener, I found it to be well-researched and charming.
Any additional comments?
I love the covers and artwork of the books in this series so I purchased the books, but ended up listening to this book on Audible.
