BACK TO THE PRAIRIE A Home Remade, A Life Rediscovered

by | Read by Melissa Gilbert, Timothy Busfield [Intro.]

Biography & Memoir • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Fans of Melissa Gilbert and "Little House on the Prairie" will get a lift during this performance of her second memoir, this one detailing her life with Timothy Busfield. Although Gilbert's voice has matured with age, one still hears the perky nuances that made her performances as Laura Ingalls so endearing. Anecdotes are filled with joy, anger, hope, and laughter as the couple leave California and settle down in the Catskills. Gilbert displays wonder as she gets to know the wildlife around their renovated home, determination as she builds and tends a garden, and love and respect for her husband during the challenging isolation of the Covid pandemic. It seems Gilbert's life has come full circle. Busfield's narration of his introduction is icing on the cake. S.D.B. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2022]
