Most can recall what may be termed 'the good old days'. Each generation will recall the best of the past and take the sum of positive experience and call it good. This story shares the very end of the best of times in Acadia. Love is in bloom, reputations are strong, and all look to a bright future. A lifetime of change can come in one 24 hour period. And when all is stripped away perhaps the the best that remains from shattered dreams is hope. A classic story from Longfellow. Narrated by Glenn Hascall.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The actual poem. If I understood this was a BS Cliff notes version, I never would have bought it.
