    A blood test that should have brought comfort brings confusion and pain instead. Now, Beth Murdock must face the truth; Stevie, the little girl she has raised as her own for almost two years, isn't hers. Jonathon McDuff doesn't know what to make of the legal document explaining that his daughter Lexie isn't really his. He wants his biological child back, but he can't stand to think of losing the little girl he knows as his.

    nothing

    Suddenly all alone in 1894 Kansas, Summer Steadman can't find the employment she needs to settle near the fresh graves of her husband and four children. Bitter against the Lord and refusing to eat, she collapses in despair. Remembering his own painful loss, godly widower Peter Ollenbuger offers her food and shelter for tutoring his 10-year-old son.

    Would you listen to Waiting for Summer's Return again? Why?

    yes. I enjoyed the story immensely, and I enjoyed Barbara's accent.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That the mennonites eventually accepted a nonmember into their community


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

    This is my first time. I am not sure her accent was German, but it did give authenticity to the story. I did enjoy her.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend this book to anyone. I am new to audiobooks so don't know if I just didn't like the lady reading the story, or if I didn't like the story line. I didn't even listen to the entire first part.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kate Morton again?

    doubtful


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Caroline Lee?

    don't know, but didn't enjoy her narration


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    maybe it would be easier to get to the end
