Heartwarming, educational and thrilling!
One of the most memorable moments for me is the way that Corrie was let out of the concentration camp BY "ACCIDENT!" the time when the home of the Ten Booms was invaded and the family was taken away, while the Jewish "guests" were not found, was also exciting.
No, I have not listened to other books read by Wanda McCaddon, but she does a great job. I could feel Corrie's feelings in the way she read the story.
I cried many times during the book- when Corrie's mother passes away, Times when Casper would teach a life concept to Corrie, and when Betsy dies. There were also many fun and happy times that made me laugh.
A nice book to listen to on a rainy day when feeling sorry for ones self.
The story line and interaction of characters kept me on the edge of my seat.
The whole book-I mean every page was memorable
Very good. Some of the inflections are different than that in every day speech, but wonderful over all
I have suggested it to all my friends
This is one of the books my mother read to me many times before I was able to read and re-read it myself. I was reminded of how faithfully the little Pepper family "toughed-out" their meager little lives together.
The positive attitude of the family members and the loyalty to each other
When little Phronsie followed the organ grinder out of town and was saved by the big dog and the boy that came to be such a special friend.
Obviously depicting times after the American Civil War, judging by the date of first printing, I enjoyed the demonstration of commradarie in the little town, and the way everyone stuck together to help and support the least fortunate.
Short but enjoyable listen. Brought back many pleasant memories of childhood enchantment with the characters.
