The narrator wasn't bad, but the, story read like a school-aged child wrote it.
I was anticipating a court drama that circled around religious issues. The story started off ok, but then dragged through boring descriptions of this conservative family.
After a while her voice became annoying. Maybe it has to do with the flat read.
The narrators were believable. The author brought to life characters I will always remember.
It read like a classic. Anne of Green Gables was referenced in this story several times. The characters are as likeable and as rich as Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blithe.
The accents were believable. The story was not just read, they performed it.
I found myself cheering for and crying for Niahm. I wanted her to succeed. I wanted her life to mean something more than one misfortune after another. I was so pleased. Molly was not as likeable or relatable to me, but I found myself cheering for her too.
I listened to this story on my long commute to and from work. It made the drive enjoyable and I actually found myself looking forward to getting on the road. The history of the real orphan trains made me reflect on a time when people were so desperate for the American dream; A time when people were devasted from the Great Depression.
