These Happy Golden Years

This is an okay book written by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Laura is teaching school, and it's terrifying! She is only fifteen years old and most of her students are taller than she is, and she must live away from home for the first time. Laura is miserable, but the money is needed to keep her older sister Mary in a college for the blind. And every Friday – no matter the weather – Almanzo Wilder arrives to take Laura home to her family for the weekend. Laura and Almanzo start courting, and even though she's not yet sixteen, she knows that this is a time for new beginnings.

This is the eighth book in the Little House (or The Laura Years) series.
