Refreshing and Inspiring!

“The Parting” was a very refreshing and inspiring story about the joy of life found in knowing and having a relationship with God. I like how the setting is in a natural and simplistic surrounding were the focus is on the important things in life. I did not care for the narrator’s voice. While it fits the character, it seems shaky and unsteady at times.

It was slow starting, but perseverance pays.

It was not the best performance, but the story drew me in as I got to know the characters. I ended up hoping for them and rooting for them.

Wonderful!

I loved this story. Am eager to start the next one in the series.

Loved the narrator too. She has such an "innocent" voice that suits the Amish well. :o)
