Grandpa's Darlings


Read by TriciaG

(4.6 stars; 22 reviews)

Fiction, or fact? The narrator asserts it's fact.
The narrator is an author, whom her little nieces call "Auntie Belle". There's also an "Auntie Dule" (proper name Julia), Grandpa and Grandma, Mama and Papa, and eventually an Uncle Ross (Isabella Alden's husband, Gustavus Rossenberg Alden). The book is made up of vignettes of the funny sayings or doings of little Minnie and little Gracie, and how these lead to Grandpa's wise lessons for both the little ones and the adults. - Summary by TriciaG (5 hr 42 min)

so sweet


(5 stars)

I love all her stuff! not super deep but very inspiring and she's obviously a genuine Christian so makes me happy to listen to her while I'm doing dishes or folding laundry etc. praise Jesus for people like this who genuinely try to help the world that being honest to goodness Christians!

Each Pansy book is The Best.

Thanks to lovely reader also.

Written for children, but adults can enjoy them, too. I think the stories could be successful for bedtime. Note: Gracie is the author's niece, also a popular writer on Librivox, Grace Livingston Hill.
