Very polished for an early work.
Tal - range of emotions - not one dmensional.
Good character voices.

The fact that we ( My husband and me ) found it. We thought we had heard everything of this author's on audio.
IT was vintage MacDonald, although the main character ( sorry, forgot his name ) was not quite as likable as Spencer and other MacDonald characters. Redeemed himself at the end, though.
Very last one.
Cry just once. Not my hubbie though. We listened together in the car.
We both thought the reader was quite good so no idea why one person gave him a bad review. To each his own, I guess.
