During the Great Depression, Jeb Nubey is running from the law when he meets three abandoned children. With nowhere else to go the group passes a stormy night in a comforting church.

    "Touching"

    This book is so cute. It is well written and narrated and just one of those sweet stories. I look forward to getting in the car everyday and as I approach the end of the book, am sorry that it will end soon.

    "A wonderful book"

    this is a book in the "inspirational" genre. It has good characters that end up being more believable as the story goes on. It seems like it could fall into stereotypes and typical characters then they develop realistically. The church people are caring and the growing sense of faith in the teenage girl, Angel and the "daddy" is gradual, real and heartfelt. A little Depression history and facts wove into the story and made me feel the times. This book was enjoyable and I will miss the characters.

    "Story chosen because of narrator"

    I chose this book because I have enjoyed the narrator so much in the series of "At Home in Mitford" books. The narrator was enjoyable as I had expected but I found the story to be a bit far-fetched and seemed like it was strung along too far. It was interesting enough, but I was ready for the ending. I probably wouldn't recommend it as highly as many others I have listened to.
