Publisher's Summary

Six-time Christy Award winner Lynn Austin has won a loyal following for her inspiring historical fiction. In Wonderland Creek, young Chicago-area librarian Alice Grace Ripley is left heartbroken when her fiancé breaks up with her just as the Great Depression forces her out of a job. To escape the local gossip, Alice volunteers to deliver donated books to a library in rural Kentucky. There she discovers that God still has a plan for her after all.

    "Great read!"

    Very unusual story that kept me interested throughout the book! It contained mystery, suspense, and romance set in a background of depression-era struggles. I highly recommend it!

    "Amazing!"

    Probably one of the best, most captivating books I have read in a while. I️ loved the twists and turns and mysteries. The life lessons Alice learned were impacting. Even in a fun story such as this, God used it to bring a great message to my heart. I️ recommend it highly!!

    "Really good, started slow but ended well."

    Didn't like the characters at first, but grew to really like them and really enjoyed the book. Narrator is good, no distractions or annoyances. On to the next Lynn Austin book!

    Story
    "Experience life in 1930's Acorn, Kentucky"

    As usual, Lynn Austin brings her characters to life with completely believable characters, especially the first-person bookworm protagonist in this story. Historical enthusiasts will love the details of life in extremely rural Kentucky and Kate Forbes, again providing a richly-textured performance of the female characters especially, will evoke powerful images of special ladies we have known and honored. Thanks to all involved in this production!!

    "Wonderland Creek"

    Starts slow but soon turns into a good read. I enjoyed it very much. It was well narrated and the story was captivating even if a little far fetched.

    "Good story, Bad narrator"

    This was a good story but the narrator ruined it for me. Lynn Austin, as always, wrote a good book But she should have gotten a narrator who could have been able to pull off the voice of a young woman. Her voice was ok for the old women but not of a young person.
    I will continue to purchase books by Lynn Austin but will be looking for another narrator.
