All about These Happy Golden Years Audiobook Free
These Happy Golden Years is an autobiographical children’s audiobook written by Laura Ingalls Wilder and published in 1943, the eighth of nine books in her Little House Audiobook series – although it originally ended it.
It is based on her later adolescence near De Smet, South Dakota, featuring her short time as a teacher, beginning at age 15, and her courtship with Almanzo Wilder. It spans the time period from 1882 to 1885, when they marry.
Fifteen-year-old Laura lives apart from her family for the first time, teaching school in a claim shanty twelve miles from home. She is very homesick, but keeps at it so that she can help pay for her sister Mary’s tuition at the college for the blind.
During school vacations Laura has fun with her singing lessons, going on sleigh rides, and best of all, helping Almanzo Wilder drive his new buggy.
Friendship soon turns to love for Laura and Almanzo in the romantic conclusion of this Little House book.
Such a sweet ending to sweet audiobook and a sweet series. This Audiobook Free had all the things I’ve loved about this series: The Ingalls family, the setting, seeing how things were during that historical time period, Almanzo, and a very sweet, innocent romance. The familial love and support of the Ingalls family for each other was especially wonderful.
I shed a tear of happiness at Laura and Almanzo’s wedding, especially when Pa played all the old songs on his fiddle, and everything else, and just… gah! It made me so happy.
