Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm has delighted readers for over 100 years. Published in 1903, when girls were inevitably depicted as pretty, gentle and proper, Rebecca Rowena Randall burst onto the scene of children's literature. Sent to live with her prim and proper Aunt Miranda, who is expecting her much more demure sister, Rebecca is a "bird of a very different feather".

Rebecca captures your heart in the first few minutes and never lets go. Although the circumstances in the 1800s differ substantially from today's, Rebecca's challenges and triumphs serve as a metaphor for today's women who so often face extistential choices between family and career.

The narrator, Ann Richardson, describes the story's action and the characters' emotions in splendid fashion. Her narrative is so vivid that it's like watching a movie. I love her Maine accent!

(I requested this audio book from the producer and am voluntarily posting my review of it.)
