These Happy Golden Years - Laura Ingalls Wilder
Title: These Happy Golden Years
Author: Laura Ingalls Wilder
Genre: Classics
Rating: 5/5
# pages: 237
Date read: July 2007, January 2010, August 2012


Summary: Fifteen-year-old Laura learns that living away from home and teaching school can be a bit frightening when most of the students are taller than she is, but every week Almonzo Wilder arrives to take her to her family for the weekend.

Review: I love all of Laura's books, but if I had to choose a favourite, it would probably be this one. It takes up exactly where "Little Town..." leaves off and describes Laura's life now that she's suddenly a grown-up school teacher. I couldn't imagine teaching school at an age where I still ought to GO to school! It's fascinating. And the courtship between her and Almonzo is just adorable. I always finish this book with a content sigh :)

This is my favorite Little House too, for the same reasons as yours. :)
