    Story
    (17)

    For years, 16-year-old Hattie's been shuttled between relatives. Tired of being Hattie Here-and-There, she courageously leaves Iowa to prove up on her late uncle's homestead claim near Vida, Montana. With a stubborn stick-to-itiveness, Hattie faces frost, drought, and blizzards. Despite many hardships, Hattie forges ahead, sharing her adventures with her friends, especially Charlie, fighting in France, through letters and articles for her hometown paper.

    Lisa says: "Surprisingly excellent!"
    "I was with Hattie all the way while listening."

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Hattie Big Sky the most enjoyable?

    Hattie's sense of humor, frankness, kindness, loneliness and stubborness. She and other characters are so alive and real! I enjoyed the letters written by Hattie to her uncle and Charlie, Charlie's letters to Hattie also.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hattie Big Sky?

    I liked when Chase and Mattie happened to spend the night at Hattie's due to heavy snow. I was amazed with the cleverness of the horse. Mattie is such a lovely girl and reminded me how kids are open to love and favor of people. And Chase. What a wise and good-natured boy he is!


    Have you listened to any of Kirsten Potter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I have never listened Kirsten Potter's performances before but I think she is a wonderful performer. She made all characters so alive and real. Good job!


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

    You will find what you seek in life in this story. This is a story about home, family, friendship, neighbor and yourself.


    Any additional comments?

    The messages I received from this audiobook are that you are not alone even if your own parents are dead, you don't have a family of your own in usual sense, that you will always find friends, family, someone you love and what matters is that you love and live, not what other people think of you.
