I am periodically on the lookout for an audiobook that can be enjoyed by the whole family and is appropriate for the whole family. My two daughters and I listened to this book while on a road trip and we all enjoyed it very much. It was interesting to hear about life in Switzerland in the 1930s. The characters were interesting and the book imparted good values.

I wish this version were the original unabridged novel (Mary Mills has recently condensed most of Patricia St. John's books), but it's still so very good, and the story is beautiful and powerful. I've read it out loud to my children twice, and am thrilled that we now have this as a permanent audiobook and can listen at will. The reader has a lovely British accent that just seems right. Please don't miss this one! If you haven't seen the movie, look that up as well.

I read this book when I was a child and it made a big impression on me, so it was fascinating to be re-united with the story and good to be reminded of the spiritual truths it highlights.

I have very fond memories of this heart-warming story. It was read to me by my mother as a child, as it was also read to her class in junior school, a little each day.
I was delighted to find it available on Audible.
My only criticism is that I felt it most unnecessary to very slightly modify the original text; for me this only detracted from the original book.
Nevertheless, it remains a much loved audiobook.
