    What did you like about this audiobook?

    It was like I was playing a movie in my head. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen next. I have to admit, though, that I was sad that Ralph got all caught up in writing "fairy tales" to his mother. But, I understand he was trying to calm her fears. He was such a resourceful young man in many ways. He was good at earning money and not afraid to try new things. He showed tremendous patience with his new friend Lonnie. And he really took care of Lonnie in a way that most people wouldn't.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    I absolutely am interested in how people lived in the early 1900's.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    He described things with such detail that it was easy to imagine what he was talking about.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    I cannot find fault with the narrator's performance. I enjoy his work.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    I recommend the "Little Britches" series.

    Would you listen to Man of the Family again? Why?

    I watch movies once; and I read books once. For me, there's too much to do to go back.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Man of the Family?

    I have truly enjoyed learning of all the creative ways Ralph earned money to help out the family.


    Which character – as performed by Cameron Beierle – was your favorite?

    Of course, Ralph is my favorite character. I find it interesting how he talks most about the sister that is closest to his age. And I enjoy him talking about her, too.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed and got teary eyed, too.


    Any additional comments?

    I find this series of books as ones I want to "read" to acquaint myself more with how life was before I was born.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Father and I Were Ranchers to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ralph "Little Britches"


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I didn't know this book was based on an autobiography until after I read it. But, when he was telling about breaking nine toes, I just knew the details could not have been made up. Ouch! Trying to imagine such an injury, was beyond my imagination!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A young boy learns to be a cowpoke.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm going to "read" book #2 now.

    Acclaimed inspirational author W. Dale Cramer pens the tale of an Amish prodigal's struggle for faith and forgiveness. As Will returns to bury his dad, his mind flashes back 42 years to when he fled his Amish heritage, abandoning his unborn child's mother and inflicting pain only a parent can fathom. Now he understands that pain. And he thinks of all those years of silence, all those words never spoken. But as his father lies cold and still, is all hope for healing gone?

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! It satisfies some of the curiosity one may have about the Amish people. This book also brings one to contemplate about what's important in life.


    What other book might you compare Levi's Will to and why?

    I haven't read another book quite like this one, so I can't compare it to anything else.


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    The story is about a man named Will. He is my favorite character.


    If you could take any character from Levi's Will out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would take Helen, Will's wife out to dinner. I would talk with her about why he is the way he is. I would help her to gain more of an understanding of him.

    What did you love best about Eight Cousins?

    The thing I loved most is knowing I didn't have to worry that the story would be inappropriate in any way. I so enjoyed listening to Flo Gibson narrate with her voices and accents. I highly recommend this classic.


    What other book might you compare Eight Cousins to and why?

    Beautiful Joe was my favorite book as a child. I think if I had read Eight Cousins it would have been right up there as an equally favorite.


    Which character – as performed by Flo Gibson – was your favorite?

    It touched me the way Rose honored Phoebe. When the cousins were out having fun, Rose stayed behind so that Phoebe could enjoy herself.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It touched me the was Rose honored Phoebe. When the cousins were out having fun, Rose stayed behind so that Phoebe could have the experience of joining in.
