Publisher's Summary

Unlike most folks, Hannah Westley never outgrew her childhood sense of wonder. Her first twenty years on the farm were the beginning of a life filled with adventure. Her simple childhood was rich with experiences that offer a glimpse into a time when family values had real meaning. The maps in the one-room Mine Bank School were her Bible and by the eighth grade she had read all of the books in the library. A perpetual run-away, she often dreamed of stowing away on a banana boat and escaping to South America! Her imagination became her passport to far-away lands. As an adult, Hannah did indeed reach many distant shores. Nimble as a hummingbird, she zooms through her early years and inspires us to follow her amazing journey. Children of all ages will enjoy these memories of a very different lifestyle and day not so long ago.

    "Tales of the Past Shared"

    I was given a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review . Hannah Cook Westley wrote stories of her childhood and young adult life on a rural farm in Pennsylvania from the 1930s through 1950. She brings the past to life vividly. The narrator, Linda Velwest, does an excellent job. I enjoyed listening and believe listeners of all ages will be charmed and educated by this book.

    Any additional comments?

    Wow by Hannah Cook Westley was a good quick read. Hannah was a girl who grew up on the farm but didn't let that stop her from making life an adventure. This was a great book about Hannah's life.

    "put this on you next to listen too"

    I was gifted this audio ARC for a honest and unbiased review from the author/narrator.
    Hannah Cook Westly wrote a very different kind of story then I'm used to reading/listening to! But saying that I loved it! For a short story it was all about memories of the women who grew up on the family farm. I am doing my genealogy of my family and wish I had thought of doing the same. There was a touch of drama and a lot of laugh out loud moments.
    Linda Velwest's voice was spot on for the story but it was a little on the slow side actually sped the book up to 1.5.
    I highly recommend this audio book to you. Yes you reading my review.....buy this audio book

    Wow
    : Hannah Cook Westley

    A short listen of memories of a woman that grew up on her family farm. There is humor as well as a bit of drama to keep th listener entertained. It was nice to hear about life not too many years past. I like when family share stories of their relatives from their writings.


    The narration was a little slow. but I listened on my Kindle at 2X the speed and that helped. Linda Velwest's voice went well with the story.
