Publisher's Summary

Seven Thin Dimes takes listeners to the heart of what family means, and the value of the things in life that money cannot buy. Select memories of Janet Roberts' childhood visits to her grandmother's house in McDonald, Pennsylvania, are captured here in this engaging, thoughtful memoir. A collection of essays, it was originally written as a gift to the author's family following the death of her grandmother, Esther Masquelier, and was never intended for publication. The essays here are the inspiration behind placing The Narrow Gate, her debut novel, in the town of McDonald.

Wonderful Stories Read Out Loud! Loved it !

Any additional comments?

Very enjoyable book. The stories are well told and the narration by Lisa Hicks is superb (as always.) Roberts has an amazing way of drawing you into the moment, engaging your imagination and emotions, but without becoming too sentimental. The short novel really works as an audio book because it is nice to have the stories spoken out loud by a gifted voice actor.

Beautiful

A lovely story of what family means to everyone. Really enjoyed listening to someone else read the story instead of me reading. This way I was able to do my work.
