Publisher's Summary

Linnea Bradenborg expects to find culture and excitement in Alamo, North Dakota, where she's recently been hired as the new schoolteacher. Instead, she finds a sparse little town in the middle of nowhere. Better yet, her train is met by a cantankerous wheat farmer named Theodore Westgaard who doesn't bother to hide his displeasure when he discovers that L. I. Brandenborg is a woman and not the man he was expecting.

Westgaard thinks twice about bringing Linnea home to live with him, but he soon realizes that he has no choice. All of the town's past schoolteachers have lived with the Westgaard family - made up of Theodore, his mother, and his teenaged son - due to their farm being located very near the schoolhouse, and so Theodore allows Linnea into his home. But who could have guessed that this young, independent woman would soon find her way into the handsome farmer's heart?

A compelling classic to be listened to again and again, Years is a fitting tribute to the pioneer schoolteachers who braved many hardships to share the gift of knowledge with countless children.

My favorite Romance Novel. A Classic

I first read this wonderful romance back in the 1990’s. It is hands down my favorite. I have read it several times over the years. Absolutely beautiful writing by one of my favorite author’s.

Years... how long it felt the book took to read

Decent story. Very drawn out. The characters were flat for how much time was available to know them. Susan Hanfiekds voice was sad. Lent to a depression era feel.

The Book Was Very Slow - DNF

I purchased this book because of the high number of very good reviews here and was in need of something new and engaging to listen to. This was my fourth by Lavyrle Spencer the other were so good. But this book was so slow. I thought the development of love between the characters was bumpy and their constant fights (which, I know are supposed to masquerade as their resistance to their irresistible love) were just annoying and I found Teddy's unwavering focus on the difference of 16 years incredibly senseless - I just didn't get that.
The narrator was not to my liking at all and in the end I just couldn't finish the book
This one is going back

Susan Hanfield was very monotone and I found it hard to tell apart her male voices

Terrible narration

I’ve read this story many times and it’s a very enjoyable book, but this narrator is abysmal and monotone. How is the world did she get this job?

Narrator awful

Story was great but the narrator was a monotone. I’m hoping she doesn’t read any more books that I listen to.
