    "A Favorite"

    A wonderful story about a boy growing up in the early 1900's. I have read this book 3 times and will listen to it many times

    "Outstanding"

    This story was different than the others. Mr Moody shows his progression from boy to young man and the difficulties of connecting with his much older grandfather. This book is an excellent example of showing how love, hard work and determination can overcome differences and difficulties.

    Story
    "Compassion at a Price"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This puts altruism into a real-life setting without being preachy. I can't believe the boy stays. Is this what maturity looks like? I believe so . . . but at such a price! Wholesome, loving, work the way generations past knew it!


    What about Cameron Beierle’s performance did you like?

    Spot on with the grandfather's dialect. How he can even talk that way amazes me. It truly transports me to a time where families lived differently and people of our country spoke a different English.
