I have read many of Beverly Lewis’ books and have enjoyed them all thoroughly. I chose to buy this one on Audible and I am not sure if I would do it again. Either this book was not as good as the previous ones or something was lost in the reading thereof. I can’t fault the performances per se, but this book was definitely not in the same league as the previous ones I have read. The story in itself was endearing, starting with Lena Rose losing her parents and being torn away from all that is familiar. She bears her suffering and trials remarkably well for someone who has lost so much. The story proceeds rather slow and steady until through a series of events, she is able to return home. I missed the usual description of the characters. Not sure if it was just because I didn’t pick it up in the listening. I only recall a few brief descriptions of Arden as well as of her uncle. I kept wondering what Lena actually looks like. The story ends beautifully with a happy ending. If you want an easy story to listen to, then this will be a great choice.
