Publisher's Summary

Best-selling premier Christian author Michael Phillips continues his tale of the transforming friendship between two girls from very different backgrounds. This second book in the Shenandoah Sisters series follows the popular Angels Watching Over Me. Mayme and Katie have become friends, which is unusual given that their friendship has spouted at the end of the Civil War and that Mayme is a former slave, while Katie is the daughter of a plantation owner. Both girls have been orphaned by the war, left alone on Katie's family plantation. The land is the one thing they still share, and they don't want to leave it. But if anyone finds out the two of them live there alone, they will be forced to move. Despite their differences, the two girls rely on one another and are determined to survive no matter what it takes.
Susan Spain's narration perfectly captures the emotions of these two adventurous young women.

A great Story

This was a great book. Do you have the other four that are in the set on audible, if so I would like to get them also.
My Children loved this story.

Entertaining listen

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The ending lacked zeal.

If you’ve listened to books by Michael Phillips before, how does this one compare?

First listen

What about Susan Spain’s performance did you like?

She acts out the characters, and brings the characters to life passionately.

Was A Day to Pick Your Own Cotton worth the listening time?

Yes it was interesting and kept me on the edge of my seat a few times.

Any additional comments?

The singing was a bit much!
