The relationship of Eliza Jane and Harve Miller blossoms, but it never reaches its potential since Eliza is unable to express her true feelings of love for Harve. Things begin to fall apart when Harve reveals he is in love with someone else although Eliza pretends that they are still involved. After Almanzo loses his crop and postpones their wedding, Laura offers to take a teaching position in another town to help earn money for a new farm.

Laura breaks the engagement when Almanzo refuses her help. In the end, Eliza Jane decides to leave, but not before convincing her little brother to let his wife-to-be teach at the school. Almanzo agrees, and the two are wed at the Blind School in Sleepy Eye.
