Depression Era Kentucky as a Librarian

This is a different sort of Lynn Austin book than the others I have read. It clearly fits into the "inspirational" category with many references to prayer, God, and faith. It is a very long story (over 15 hours) that plods forward as a shallow, over protected outsider makes a new life for herself during a visit to poverty stricken rural Kentucky. The story is not a neat and tidy one. There are many loose ends and miraculous twists and turns. I enjoyed the book very much over all. I thought Kate Forbes did a great job narrating the different voices. At times I thought the book rambled on a bit too long-- but at the same time I kept on listening with great interest. It was a positive story and worth a listen.

Grand Journey

I was deterred by the beginning of this book, wondering if it was for a younger crowd and if it would be relatable to me. However, I hung in there. I'm very glad I did. I feel as though I have been on a journey myself, after watching the events unfold for Alice. The characters were very endearing and I fell in love with them, even though I had the same reluctance Alice did at first. The ending left me crying - sad, satisfied tears; as well as smiling, completely fulfilled by a book well written, characters so well developed I feel as though I know them personally, and a plot fully traversed by pen and heart. I will be reading more by this author and listening to more by this narrator. Both were exceptional!
