Publisher's Summary

Gramps says that I am a country girl at heart, and that is true.

Thirteen-year-old Salamanca Tree Hiddle, proud of her country roots and the "Indian-ness in her blood", travels from Ohio to Idaho with her eccentric grandparents. Along the way she tells them of the story of Phoebe Winterbottom, who received mysterious messages, who met a "potential lunatic", and whose mother disappeared. 

Beneath Phoebe's stories Salamanca's own story and that of her mother, who left one April morning for Idaho, promising to return before the tulips bloomed. Sal's mother has not, however, returned, and the trip to Idaho takes on a growing urgency as Salamanca hopes to get to Idaho in time for her mother's birthday and bring her back, despite her father's warning that she is fishing in the air. 

This richly layered novel is in turn funny, mysterious, and touching. Sharon Creech's original voice tells a story like no other, one that listeners will not soon forget.

Disappointed

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

My low review has nothing to do with either the story itself or the narrator, but the fact that the narration does not follow the text of the book. There are passages that are omitted from the narration. As an English teacher who uses audio books to supplement my students' reading, I am very disappointed in this version.

Abridged!

Great book. Wonderful narrator. But I wanted the unabridged reading. Fortunately, that is also available on Audible, so I was able to exchange.

Not a good audioversion

I tried to play this for my students to follow along as they read, however the speaker skipped around too much confusing my students. I wish I could get my money back for this.

I listen to this one 2 or 3 times a year.

Ms Creech is a story teller that immerses the listener into the place and soul of the story without the need to tell too much. Mary Stuart Masterson is my favorite narrator of all time. Thank you both for this book.
