This is one of my favourite Gene Stratton-Porter books from way back and I enjoyed listening to this audio version of it, alongside my then 13 & 11 yr old children as a summer time audio book.
It pays to note the mother is awful at the beginning of this book (nasty, embittered, and abusive!! ) and then a series of events happen that change her life, her attitude, and the way she treats her daughter, Elnora.
The Girl of the Limberlost, in my opinion, is one of those timeless stories of forgiveness, restoration, and redemption. If you appreciate the character development, and story line, in such books as: A Little Princess ~ Burnett, Understood Betsy ~ Canfield, Old Fashioned Girl ~ Alcott, then you'll appreciate this book... well, after you get past the awful mother portion!
There is romance in the book, the wholesome kind that is not sensuality based.
Christina Moore does a sterling job of bringing this book to "read aloud" life.
