I had debated on this book for some time just not quite sure about it from the description. But because Kate Reading was narrating, I finally gave it a try. And so glad I did!
One of the amazing things about voice actor Reading is that I forget there is s narrator. I just get completely lost in the story. Yes, she has unique character voices, a smooth narration, and all the other hallmarks we look for in a reader. But the story comes first, and it shines in the best possible light.
This bittersweet tale could have been one of the brothers Grimm own tales. It weaves through hardship after hardship, to end with a triumph against the odds. A story to encourage perseverance and hope.
While there were no notes regarding historical accuracy, it does take place in Westphalia before and after Napoleon's rise to power. And I think to myself: It seems a realistic picture of what it might have been like as an average person living through war torn times in the 19th century. Some nice details for the historical clothing fans out there. Enough visuals overall, that I recall it as one might a movie.
