    Young Princess Irene is sent to the country to be raised in a half-farmhouse, half-castle located in the side of a mountain. While exploring the top of the castle, Irene becomes lost and inexplicably finds her way to a mystifying and beautiful woman spinning a thread. Princess Irene is drawn to the woman whom she discovers is her great-great-grandmother. But after she returns, her nurse, Lootie, refuses to believe in the old woman's existence.

    My son (age 8)and I loved this book which we listened to during a long car ride. My daughter (age 5 and a princess lover) thought it was a little scarey but she liked it too.

    Orphaned while onboard ship from Ireland, seven-year-old Lavinia arrives on the steps of a tobacco plantation where she is to live and work with the slaves of the kitchen house. Under the care of Belle, the master's illegitimate daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her adopted family, though she is set apart from them by her white skin. Eventually, Lavinia is accepted into the world of the big house, where the master is absent and the mistress battles opium addiction.

    Overall

    Wow, so many great reviews but I have to disagree with most. Come on now, every day brought more doom and gloom. Really takes itself too seriously for my taste. Braver than Scarlet ? Not a chance, and absolutely no fun to read. I did finish it though.

    When a wealthy man first meets his mail-order bride in 1907, he realizes this statuesque beauty is anything but a "simple missionary's daughter." But he doesn't know of her devious plan to leave Wisconsin as a rich widow. Nor does she know of the furious demons he longs to unleash during the lonely months of snowbound isolation.

    Richard says: "Intriguing story but only average writing"
    "AAbookgirl"
    Overall

    This was trashy, repetitive, and unsatisfying but alass, I finished it, cursing myself for doing so much of the way. Afterwords,I felt like I'd just eaten a big plate of something yukky. Why, why why?

    This heartfelt series about an Amish family began with The Covenant and The Betrayal. Best-selling Christian author Beverly Lewis continues the melodic ballad of Abram, his wife Ida, and their children who work together to learn how to forgive past transgressions and embrace the joy that their faith brings.

    "No Thank you"
    Overall

    This book should have been clasified under Romance - not literary fiction - and it could have been call "Who's courtin' Who". Snoooooze.
    I was angry with myself for listening all the way through.
