Wholesome But Borderline Depressing :-)


This is another in a delightful series that I have found. The publishers of the stories are reaching back through the decades to find wholesome stories that have never been available in audio before. These are appropriate for the whole family and it would be great to listen to one or two chapters in the evening after dinner or at bedtime, in my opinion.

Alone in London is a historical story about a street boy named Tony who happens upon Oliver, an elderly man and his granddaughter Dolly. The 3 of them make their own little family in life in the slums of London.

My only gripe with these old stories (and it is not a negative) is the depths of tragedy found within. There is a religious aspect that is revealed to comfort, but for me, I find that listening to one of the stories, once in a while is enough. If I were to listen to them back to back to back, I think I would become depressed.

Cassandra King is a wonderful narrator. She is able to portray Oliver, Tony (around 10 years old) and Dolly (who is even younger) with ease.

Overall, this is a great story for the individual or for the family. It is free of vulgarity in any shape or form. There is a religious component, as well.

*I was given this book to listen to in exchange for posting my unbiased review.
