Every book is a new journey to embark on. I mainly read romances, but I dabble in other genres too.


These Happy Golden Years

These Happy Golden Years  - Laura Ingalls Wilder, Garth Williams

Very enjoyable book. We see that Laura is growing up and becoming independent. She's earning money by teaching and is being courted by Almanzo. Even Mary is going off on her own by attending college.

Overall, I mostly liked the parts with Almanzo and Laura. It's a very sweet and charming romance. Although the conversation they have about Laura obeying Almanzo is peculiar. Almanzo says that he wouldn't make Laura promise him to obey him when they are married, and Laura assures him that she isn't for woman's rights since she doesn't want to vote. It's disappointing that Laura says this, but it shows how during that time, women voting was an outlandish idea.
