My daughter found it far easier to listen to the audiobook of The Crucible than to read it from the paper copy. The dramatisation of the play was great, and it really came alive. A great study helper!
A delightful surprise to find the story of two women and their loving relationship set in the wild west in the 1870's. Lots of twists and turns, unexpected directions, and had me completely engrossed from start to finish. Obviously the author had done her homework well - history records many such relationships after the Civil War, and she has brought the characters to life beautifully. Equally brought to life by Linda Stephens reading the book, warm and characterfilled. What a pity there arent more like this!
A delightful and fascinating story, but could have been better directed and the narration was downright poor. Still, the kids understood it and enjoyed it. An amazing side of American history we were previously ignorant of.
