unabridged???

this is one of my favourite books, and has been for over 20 years. so i was really pleased to find an unabridged recording. except, some of my favourite lines were missing. its possible of course that they never were in the american edition of this book, but i can't really see why that would be. what there was was good, other than hannah's own words in the hymns being unaccountably spoken rather than sung (the narrator obviously knew the tunes), which lowered the humour. but to leave out mark's description of his voice as a long grey man with a feather in his mouth seems a little strange.

We LOVE this book!

We listened to Ballet Shoes a couple years ago and LOVED it. This one is just as good! We have listened to both many times and still throughly enjoy them! The plot is interesting, the characters very entertaining and likeable, and the overall effect is charming. And Elizabeth Sastre is a very talented reader! We would strongly recommend this book to anyone.
