Publisher's Summary

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!

    Story
    "better than expected"

    This book is about a girl that is stuck in a book world and very detached from reality. She was so weird to me that I didn't understand her but I did understand her selfishness.
    It was really cool to see the changes in her character.

    "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.

    "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.
