I enjoyed listening to "In His Touch" once I got used to Cody Roberts' style of reading. He has a nice voice, but his style of reading was a little off-putting at first.

I think Peggy Henderson does a good job of portraying the reality of orphan life in the 1800s. Everything she described was very real, unfortunately for the people who experienced it. I can always count on Peggy to be historically accurate.
Oh, and characters from the previous books do make an appearance, which I love.
