Overall a good story
This is a sad tale, you can see the ending coming (somewhat) because of the initial introduction to the book. I think the narrator did such a fine job, it really made this story work.
This tale is set long ago, before automobiles. All the world is horse drawn carriages. There are no electric lights. Wood stoves heat homes and provide cooking heat. So, in this slower, rural life a man must make a choice. He wants to love and be loved, not be married for the sake of who can care for his family. A sad tale for sure. Had I read a paper version of this book, I think my rating would be a 4. A 4, to me, is something that was pretty good, but it wouldn't be the book I buy to give out as gifts. The narration is what kicked up this rating.

Excellent narration and story
The narration for this story is done very well. It helps the reader differentiate the various characters. I am reading many modern American novels for a class and listened to the book and wrote the paper the same day. It is a wonderful story and was brought to life by the narrator. I highly recommend it!.
