This book was too slow and anticlimactic for my liking. I know that it was Christian fiction, but there was not nearly enough romance for me. This couple is forced together by circumstance and are supposed to find love in the process. I just suppose that I was left wanting. It is a sweet tale, but I wish I had spent my credit elsewhere.
I would listen to this book again because I liked the story line, and the characters.
For me, one of the most memorable moments was when Marti started to realize she liked Clark.
I liked Ruth Ann Phimister’s performance. At first it was hard getting used to her voice, but after a few pages all went smoothly, and I forgot she was even talking. I was able to easily get involved with the story line.
I wanted to continuously listen to this book. It was supposed to be a book I listed to just while working out, but I ended up listening in the car, and at home too. I just couldn’t stop.
I loved this book! I saw this movie on TV and wanted to know more about the characters. The book is very different from the TV version. The book really gives you the character details you need.

I don't even know how many times I've read or listened to this story. It is an all time favorite. The characters are so believable. Janette Oke has done a wonderful job writing this series. I love the fact that these books are wholesome. Thanks!
I had been looking - searching for a good story. I can't wait to read the rest of the series. The performance lags at times, so I will probably get the rest on kindle. This is what I am searching for. Something deeply moving but not overly dramatic.
I love the story line, so touching and realistic for the time period.
But I was shocked by how awful, truly horrible, the narrator was. You could hear her smoke voice cough and the spit smacking and rolling around in her mouth. I was convulsively swallowing the whole time because I was so irritated by this woman's wet voice and gasping breathing.
I have loved this book since I was a child and will continue to enjoy it. But I view the purchase of this audio book as an absolute waste of money.
Truly terrible narrator
I loved this book. It started out sad, but showed the healing journey of both Clark and Marty. I loved the friendships in the book and how people worked together as a community. It has a good positive message, and is a book I will listen to again and again.
It seems this book was read in a constant read, and not edited. It was not pleasant listening to the reader swallow and seem to need a drink of water, as her mouth sounded gooey at times. She also seems to pause often to catch her breath. Her voice was much too old sounding for a story about a 21 year old. I loved the story line, but may have to think about the next book in the series. If it is the same reader, with similar reviews, I may decide to read it myself instead of listening.
