Yes, I love the story and it was done well.
Eliza, as a mother I had such deep feelings for her plight.
I often skim over parts when reading, but catch all of the story when listening.
An American Atrocity.
Occasionally, when the reader's voice was low, I had a little trouble hearing, and had to turn the volume up, but overall, it was very good.
Scarlet's mother. She had good values and had attempted to teach them to her daughter.
I was often angry at Scarlet for her selfishness and self-centeredness. Especially when her son meant nothing to her.
Abraham Lincoln. He was such a great man with so much integrity.
Too long for that, but I couldn't wait to get to the end.
It was such a contrast of good versus evil, in a real setting. Even though I knew Lincoln would be killed, the way it was written in story form and with so many details, I kept hoping history could have changed. It had me crying. I enjoyed learned so much of history that isn't known.
Probably 3rd, this includes books on my I-Pod, also.
The ending, because the book is so different from the John Wayne movie at the end. I haven't seen the new version.
Precious little Mattie!
The Courage of a Young Woman.
The end is much more violent than the John Wayne movie, so was hard for me to listen to, partly because growing up on a ranch where we have rattlesnakes, I have such a fear of them. The book was well done, though.
