Days of Sunshine, Days of Shadow: Part Two

Babypalooza has made its’ way to Walnut GroveCast! Kelly Mielke from the Dr. QuinnCast Podcast returns to discuss this intense two parter, we discuss Kelly’s pregnancy (her baby should be here any day now!), how Eliza Jane babies Almanzo and so much more in this long but very worthwhile two parter!  

“Almanzo’s continued morose outlook on life during his recovery from a crippling stroke, not to mention Eliza Jane’s pampering, takes its toll on the Wilder marriage. Not even the birth of the couple’s daughter, Rose, seems to help matters. Then, a massive tornado destroys the Wilder home, and Laura is badly injured; she recovers, but goes into shock when she sees a pile of rubble instead of the slightly damaged home she thought was there. Laura becomes severely depressed, leading Almanzo to finally realize his outlook has rubbed off on his wife; he makes good on a promise to change his attitude 180 degrees and rebuild not only their home but what was a crumbling marriage. In the end, the Wilder marriage becomes stronger for the “Days of Sunshine, Days of Sorrow” they had just gone through.”

Days of Sunshine, Days of Shadow: Part Two originally aired on February 22, 1982
