Publisher's Summary

Fifteen-year-old Laura lives apart from her family for the first time, teaching school in a claim shanty 12 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.

Enjoyed the story, the narrator not so much

This is the second Little House audio book I've listened to. Not sure if I really like the narrator or not. She has a rather husky sounding voice (like a smoker). Also has an unusual dialect. The one thing that I especially had a difficult time with is the way she pronounced Almanzo. Nothing like the tv show pronunciation, although I assume that's deliberate. I usually prefer reading but the audio version came in handy to listen during work hours at my desk and listening late at night when I couldn't sleep. Will probably get the next audio book in this series, but I wish it had a different narrator.
