This is quite an unusual book.It is about a woman named Martha Mason who spent @ 50 years in an iron lung after coming down with Polio in the early 50"s . She lived in a in a little town in the south. She graduated from college,ran a book discussion group and hosted dinners all while confined to an iron lung in her home. Her selfless loving father and mother supported her in a lifetime of achievement. The narration was perfect.Do not miss this inspiring life story.
This is a sequel to "Gerald and Elizabeth" it also has characters from "Charlotte Fairlie"
Good character development and a fine narration. A little too much talk about deer stalking and killing .That is why I gave it one less star than my usual 5 stars for other D E Stevenson stories. Still well worth a listen. Current authors cannot match some of the old ones for consistently good books. More DE Stevenson Please!
I read this book years ago and absolutely loved the audio version.The narration is perfect
with a wonderful Scottish lilt. Its like listening to an old classic movie.
I have read and loved DE Stevenson books for over 50 years. Imagine my delight when I saw that they were available on audible. Thank you Audible!. All her stories are refreshing lighthearted and well. Written . If you get tired of the formula writers of today give her a try.
The narrators are exceptional too.
Well written true story of a Genius .The narration is perfect. We used this book for out Book Club. Every body loved it .A Winner
Wonderful book great narration Read Miss Buncles Book if you can first as the characters continue the story in this sequel.
Anything by Marcia Willett is a winner. I have read ALL of her books and love them . I hope more are offered on Audible soon. I know that most of her titles are available in the UK on CD .They are very popular there as is Rosamunde Pilcher. The Childrens Hour is exceptional.
Another beautiful story with a great narrator. Anything By this author is well worth getting.
I have read ALL of D.E. Stevenson's books over the past 50 years .Many several times
over,and I have to say" Listening "to them adds to the pleasure of the experience.
If you like good old fashioned writing that does not depend on sex and violence to carry the story then try any thing by this author. I would LOVE to see more titles added to the list of choices from Audible.
Heart warming story with perfect narration. I read this many years ago and the story has improved with age and enhanced by listening to it. More Stevenson Please!
I never read anything by this author before but I took a chance because the story sounded
intriguing. It was. I liked the narrator too .It was a good listen. Would get another by this author.
Evans delivered again. This is a very good book and the narrator is excellent. I always wait for the next Evans book every Christmastime.
