Interesting slice of history
The audio version is narrated by relatives of the author. For the most part the two did an outstanding job narrating, though there were one or two moments that seemed "off" to me.
The gentle love story set in the old west.

Fresh topic and setting, great male narration
I enjoyed listening to Forrest's voice. Nicely done!
The idea of a child on the streets is disturbing, so this heroine and her passion for making a difference in such a child's life struck a chord with me. This is an uplifting, wholesome story with an early Montana setting that was new and fresh for me. The author has a sweet voice, writes well, and provides a solid inspirational message.
