Laura’s childhood friend Jane Canfield from the blind school moves back to Walnut Grove and becomes very good friends with Mr. Edwards. Before undergoing an operation that will allow her to see again, she expresses her love for Mr. Edwards, who is old enough to be her father. For both of them, the age difference doesn’t seem to make a difference.
Once Jane’s operation is successful, and her sight is restored, she finally sees Mr. Edwards for the first time, and is still in love with him. Despite being in love with Jane as well, Mr. Edwards realizes that she would have a better life without him, and encourages her to leave Walnut Grove and him so that she can pursue her longtime dreams now that she can see.
