Where does All Things New rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I've been a huge Lynn Austin fan. The authenticity, solid research, and strong foundation in faith make her novels standouts among my other listens. I really appreciated her thoughtful portrayal of the post-Civil War experiences and the struggle of the genteel southerners to accept and move-on.


What did you like best about this story?

Ms. Austin's characters are always extremely well developed. The characters who carry the message of faith are realistic and have struggled with the same issues as the characters attempting to make it through life without that solid faith. I love her strong female characters. They are always strong and challenged in believable ways.


Which scene was your favorite?

I think Josephine's bravery and willingness to find a way to get a message to the government agent was a very compelling scene.


If you could take any character from All Things New out to dinner, who would it be and why?

I would really like to meet Lizzie and Eli to hear firsthand of their struggles and challenges.


Any additional comments?

I did my best to read Lynn Austin's books in historical order. They provide an excellent opportunity to experience the events that shaped our lives today.

I'm a fan

I find that Lynn Austin consistently writes books that I enjoy reading/listening to. The stories are thoughful as well as historically significant and it's interesting to hear history told from different points of view. I have yet to be disappointed by any of Lynn Austin's books and am looking forward to the next one as I have gone through her entire collection.
