The Story of Maggie and Johnny is one that’s been told a hundred times in a hundred different ways, but the author managed to bring the characters to life in the first few pages and leave us wanting to hear the rest of the story at the end. Absolutely love it!! Can’t wait to read book 2

This book just took my breathe away. It’s the kind of love story that little girls dream of. The narrator was great as well her voice had a way of just pulling you into the story and helping to lose track of time. I will definitely be recommending this audiobook to my mom and my friends. J

Well...not all, just those caught with their trousers down, so to speak, in places where they shouldn't be.

Wow! This book was only the second one I have ever listened to on audible but as an avid longtime reader I thought it was fantastic. The story was captivating and kept my attention all the way to the end. The narrators voice was so soothing and calm I never wanted to turn it off. I have already purchased the second book and can’t wait to get started!
