Six-time Christy Award winner Lynn Austin has won a loyal following for her inspiring historical fiction. In Wonderland Creek, young Chicago-area librarian Alice Grace Ripley is left heartbroken when her fiancé breaks up with her just as the Great Depression forces her out of a job. To escape the local gossip, Alice volunteers to deliver donated books to a library in rural Kentucky. There she discovers that God still has a plan for her after all.

    "Great read!"

    Very unusual story that kept me interested throughout the book! It contained mystery, suspense, and romance set in a background of depression-era struggles. I highly recommend it!

    "Good as always."

    I can't say it is her best, her best is always the most recent one of Lynn Austin's I have read. Grabs you and brings you into the story.

    Story
    "Grand Journey"

    I was deterred by the beginning of this book, wondering if it was for a younger crowd and if it would be relatable to me. However, I hung in there. I'm very glad I did. I feel as though I have been on a journey myself, after watching the events unfold for Alice. The characters were very endearing and I fell in love with them, even though I had the same reluctance Alice did at first. The ending left me crying - sad, satisfied tears; as well as smiling, completely fulfilled by a book well written, characters so well developed I feel as though I know them personally, and a plot fully traversed by pen and heart. I will be reading more by this author and listening to more by this narrator. Both were exceptional!

    "Amazing story!"

    Lynn Austin is one of my favorite authors! Wonderland Creek is suspenseful and riveting! If I didn't have to work I would have read this book straight through! I love how Miss Austin weaves God into the characters lives. I love how this book, and all her works, teach of listening to people, being with people, being present to God and his miracles! Good book with good values!

    "A Little Predictable"

    This is not the best book I've ever read, and it's far from the best book by Lynn Austin. However, it was just what I needed right now. Lynn Austin always does a good job.

    "Excellent all round"

    Another brilliant work by Lynn Austin. Second time listening to this book. What a wonderful plot with delicious web of hilarious speeches! I love how Kate Forbes reads; she really brings the characters to life by mimicking their antics.

    "Easy Listen. Nice Story."
    What about Kate Forbes’s performance did you like?

    Loved the different voices. She was a little slow but it was nice in that the story wasn't rushed and I didn't feel like I was being hurried in my mental vision of what was going on.


    Any additional comments?

    Wanting more. I wanted to know more on different plots and what happened. Did the book get published. Did the happily ever after happen. Did the town get a revival. So many questions!

    "Lovely"

    This book was wonderful. I love the way that the author was the story. Her word choice and lyrical almost fairytale inclusions of hints about what would happen with the story amazing. I was intrigued we cannot wait to hear what would happen next. The characters were lifelike. The author brought the characters to life as well. Her voices and emotion made it enjoyable to listen to.
