extremely tedious

it would have been a great struggle to have finished it, & I didn't. It took the author way too long to say anything and the narrator talked so slow it took even longer.

I enjoyed the story... it was different from other Janette Oke stories because the heroine wasn't as likable as they normally are.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Bluebird and the Sparrow?

The conversation with the pastor and then her mother that changed her outlook on life.

What aspect of Cheryl Haas’s performance would you have changed?

The performance was fine but the sound quality of the recording was poor.
