Patty Gayle and the Legend of Kingsley is a fantasy set in Kingsley Lake, Florida, in 1960. It's the journey of Patty Gayle, a twelve-year-old awkward girl, who doesn't think she has much purpose in life until she is given a key that unlocks possibilities of which she could only dream. The key leads her on an adventure to a magical land that she thought only existed in her grandmother's stories. While on her quest, Patty Gayle realizes some of her fantasies, but must strengthen her faith in God, gain confidence in herself, overcome her own fears and emotions, and defeat a sinister sorcerer before the inhabitants of Kingsley can be saved.

My kids haven't ever enjoyed an audiobook so much
fun, whimsical, entertaining
I think I liked that it was so accessible to my kids. Even my youngest followed the entire story, start to finish. We listen to tons of audiobooks, but my guys (all boys) have never gotten as excited about one as this. They were constantly asking what I thought would happen next. The plot isn't complicated, but I think they loved the fact that there was a typical, everyday girl going through such fantastic adventures.
I haven't listened to her before, but she had nice, clear dictation and didn't detract from the story with over-the-top dramatics.
This was my first book by Cynthia P Willow, but I had heard good things about her. I heartily recommend this book for any young audience who enjoys adventure.

I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook by Cynthia Willow. Cynthia's description of both the characters and the world around them is vivid and will leave lasting picture. Patty is a believable character who wrestles with her situation and learns a great deal about what it means to have faith. I found this to be a fun read that all ages would enjoy.
