This narrator was fabulous. She made every character come alive, so distinctive without being cloyingly over dramatic. The story gives such insight into the time. This should be read by every American.
Devoted reader of American history and other related topics/biographies.
Great NOVEL, yet a good account of reconstruction as it occurred. Hence, historically relevant read.
Incredible story. Wonderful narration. A must read for any student of literature. As a fan of the movie I was apprehensive about the narration. Ms. Stephens did not disappoint.
I have read this story many times, watched the movie on the big screen and curled up in bed with popcorn and a tissue box on rainy days when a girl needs a good touch of romance and dreams of making a better world.
At first I was reluctant to listen to the story as audio, but the voice of Linda Stephens was spell binding. Though I have read this book, the way she told it, it was like the first time I had actually heard all the words, and the words are beautiful as you visualize the scenes. Linda makes this book so alive and personal.
Yes, it will always be a book I love, crafted by a wonderful story tell, but I will never bother to read it again, I will, however listen to it again!
I have seen the movie, but loved the book. Was well written and completely captivating. It filled in a lot of gaps that the movie left. I will be listening to this one again.
