    "Teachers Are Awesome No Matter the Time Period"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Courting Miss Amsel to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version,but I am sure I would have enjoyed putting my personal spin on how the characters may have looked,their mannerism and speech patterns..


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Courting Miss Amsel?

    When she bravely risked her life to save a student.


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

    No I haven't.. I enjoyed the narration however.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Well no, but I didn't want it to end.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the strength of dedication , moral christian character of the young teacher and her friend in this story. They made wise decisions for the most part based on God's words.

    "Wonderful book."

    Courting Miss Amsel was a delightful story and the narrator was fantastic. She had a different voice for each character and I love it when a narrator does this. I could picture each character in my mind just by the way the narrator changed her voice. Looking for more audio books with Laurie Birmingham as narrator.
