    Told with the same old-fashioned narrative power as the novels of Herman Wouk, The Seamstress is the true story of Seren (Sara) Tuvel Bernstein and her survival during wartime. This powerful eyewitness account of survival, told with power and grace, will stay with listeners for years to come.

    Karen says: "Thankfully a happy ending to the nightmare"
    "Absolutely wonderful."

    If you could sum up The Seamstress in three words, what would they be?

    I have read many, many stories on the holocaust. This story is very touch and I just love Wanda McCaddon's accent. I could wait to listen everyday on my way to work. Highly recommended.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Seamstress?

    When Lily dies in Seran's arms.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes

    Mary Ingles was 23, happily married, and pregnant with her third child when Shawnee Indians invaded her peaceful Virginia settlement in 1755 and kidnapped her, leaving behind a bloody massacre. For months they held her captive. But nothing could imprison her spirit. With the rushing Ohio River as her guide, Mary Ingles walked one thousand miles through an untamed wilderness no white woman had ever seen.

    Marie says: "Amazing tale of survival"
    "great adventure"

    The last chapter.
