I would have rated the story five stars had it not been for such an abrupt ending. Other than that the book was very very good. Enjoyed the author. The narrator absolutely made the story come alive. I may have found another favorite author.
Yes. It was a very pleasant and entertaining listen. Although I am not familiar with Mennonite dialect, the narrator was likeable and quite enjoyable to listen to - good voice inflection and timing with her words.
I listened to Barbara Caruso narrate Anne of Green Gables. Loved her there, also!
This storyline was very easy to follow. Since I was listening while at work, this is exactly what I wanted. Barbara really

A MUST READ!! PLEASE MAKE THIS A SERIES! I MISS THE CHARACTERS! IT'S A BOOK THAT I WAS SO INTO, THEY BECAME MY FRIENDS AND WHEN THE BOOK ENDED! I MISSED ALL OF THE PEOPLE ALONG WITH THIS STORY, I WAS SAD WHEN IT ENDED! WANTED MORE!
This book had a nice mix of history (going into a little detail about the Mennonites), spirituality and a touch of romance. The romance was in very good taste. The narrator was excellent going between male and female voices, with and without accents.
I really enjoyed everything about this book. This is a very well written story with very true to life characters. The reader is Barbara Caruso, one of my all time favorite narrators. So good!
Wonderful love story. Got to know the characters in a personal way, thanks to the author. The narrator was fantastic!
Please let it be known that this is a religious story. I would not have bought it had I known. I did not think that 'inspirational' was being used in the religious sense when I read the reviews. I sure was mistaken.
