The two halves of the book are quite different in tone, but I enjoyed both. The simple heroine is so courageous and endearing in the first half; you begin to want her kindness and perseverance to be recognized somehow. I found it to be a soothing and pleasant listen. Although the second half has some unpleasant reminders of cultural prejudices, concern for gentle Emily held my interest.

Not what I expected
I read the secret Garden years ago and loved it. This was a very different kind of book; the characters were very different in that the men and women's characters were new types to me. Our modern era has a very different view on the character of people in society. A very interesting book.
