This is one of my all time favorites! From the thick accent to the quaintness of each scene, from a child's eyes as she tries to remain strong, brave, and protective of her younger sister against all odds. Good insight into an orphans struggles. I re-listen to this one even when it is not Christmas. A bittersweet tale!

Set in 1640s Puritan Massachusetts, this "flawlessly crafted" (Booklist) historical novel by Christy Award finalist Siri Mitchell delivers a heart-wrenching tale of true love and triumphant grace. While Susannah awaits an overdue marriage proposal, a powerful villager takes a fancy to her. But after a dashing military captain comes to town, she's unprepared for the sinister turn her life soon takes.

This is amazing! Takes you back in time, and sets you right amongst the Puritans, and what their lifestyle was like. An awesome, powerful, love story! The narrator makes it a great listen!
I will listen to this one again and again!
