Narrator Christina Moore's straightforward delivery nicely suits this in-depth exploration of Laura Ingalls Wilder's life, family, and famous Little House books. Avoiding theatricals, Moore injects her performance with energy and enthusiasm appropriate for Wilder's fans who are eager to learn more about the beloved author. The audiobook is divided into parts, starting with a factual account of Wilder's childhood; the following sections detail her roles as wife, mother, and author, ending with her legacy. Moore skillfully handles the two principal challenges of this audiobook: She keeps listeners engaged as the author places Wilder's works into the wider context of American history and, more important, remains neutral when the audiobook exposes the less likable characteristics of Wilder's relatives, including her father, Charles Ingalls, and, especially, her daughter, Rose.
