Found a Great Story!
Magnificently written and hard to put down. Totally inspirational. Looking forward to sequel. Thought I lost myself a few times in time.
AN INTRIGUING DELIGHTFUL AND WELL CRAFTED BOOK
I had heard this was a must listen to book;
and so very glad I did!
Judy Sharer's words transported me back in time to
a point in our country's history that was full of challenges,
but when simple pleasures were received and relished with genuine gratitude.
The history of that time was obviously well-researched,
but the story flowed naturally without feeling heavy-handed.
To find myself, smiling and even laughing at some points,
while in tears, in other places, showed the gift the Author has
for creating memorable characters that I genuinely began to care about.
The circumstances and period may be historic, but Judy Sharer's writing
drew me in to the TIMELESS choices, situations, and feelings we have in humanity today!
(I chose to speed up the pace on this audible book slightly
as it animated the readers voice to match the Author's excellent characters. )
(I do enjoy that feature on Audible. )
