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.

I have listened to all of the "Little House" Books narrated by Cherry Jones and she has done a great job.

Excellent!

Cherry Jones does a marvelous job in narrating the book and along with the fiddle, the story comes alive. My family has enjoyed all the books in the series so far.

Great book not such a good narrator

I love this book I have been reading this series since I was 7. But miss cherry uses slightly odd voices. But other than that I completely recommended this book

Favorite!

This is my favorite of the Little House series. I love the story and Cherry Jones is the perfect narrator for Laura Ingalls Wilder's stories.
Can't go wrong with this one!

This book is very good for young readers.😀

I learned a lot about living long ago. This book goes into detail about how it is back then. For schools learning about the olden days I recommend this book. I really got to know the characters and I loved some of them.❤️👍😍

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.

Fantastic audio

The audio is well done. Great modulation and emphasis at right parts. Only the best for this author.
