This book was wonderful. I love the way that the author was the story. Her word choice and lyrical almost fairytale inclusions of hints about what would happen with the story amazing. I was intrigued we cannot wait to hear what would happen next. The characters were lifelike. The author brought the characters to life as well. Her voices and emotion made it enjoyable to listen to.
This wonderfully delightful story, full of history, was so entertaining! It made me laugh and yearn and wonder. The narrator does a fabulous job of acting and using realistic voices. A definite winner!
Lynn Austin is a wonderful author. I love how she blends comedy with the serious. Kate Forbes is an excellent narrator. I want to listen to all of Lynn Austin's books.
This book started out very slowly. If it were handy, I would have put it down and started another....but... The naïveté of the main character becomes the source of many lessons and rich history lessons further in. Lily's life lessons and an exciting plot quickly became a story to rival others in its genre. Just wait for it! It is worth it!
Wonderful characters and an uplifting story. A coming of age story transforming the heroin from a passive limp nobody to a vibrant exciting somebody
Better than most, because it IS Lynn Austin. It's quirky and lighthearted like "A Proper Pursuit", but doesn't handle the many issues with such grace...
Both. It was quite amusing having a protagonist talk about the unbelievability of a life situation that wouldn't have been believable in a book...
This book is a welcome addition to Austin's collection of well-done inspirational novels.
I am normally not a big kate Forbes fan, but her voice is actually well-suited to this one.
This is not Austin's best book, but is well worth the light read.
