    Elnora Comstock lives with her widowed mother at the edge of Limberlost Swamp. Her mother is harsh and critical of her daughter, but Elnora is a loving girl who befriends all creatures. She is especially drawn to the beautiful moths that flutter through the trees in Limberlost. Although Elnora longs to go to high school, she has no money to pay for tuition and books. When her cruel mother refuses to help, all seems lost, until Elnora learns she can sell the rare insects she collects. Still, her journey through high school and college will be full of challenges - and surprises.

    Chelle says: "A story of forgiveness, restoration and redemption"
    "This should be labeled for very young readers."

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The main character was so saccharin, I almost go artificial diabetes.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Gene Stratton-Porter again?

    No. And to be fair, I didn't finish this one.


    Did Christina Moore do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The narrator was good.


    Any additional comments?

    Using the word "ejaculated" instead of "said" or "shouted" was aggravating.
