Another great listen!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

It started out negative and with some dire circumstances, but it ended well and I consider it another great listen from Julie Klassen with great narration by Elizabeth Jasicki.

Another "reader" had posted a negative review stating this book was not a Christian book and talked of rape and other horrendous things. I only found brief discussion of a scoundrel taking advantage of a woman, but not any gory details and it was handled very delicately and tactfully, just enough to explain the story. There are many Christian references and some characters do make commitments to God and have transformed lives.

I will listen to more books written by Julie Klassen and narrated by Elizabeth Jasicki.

Left wanting more like this

I originally downloaded this because of the reference to Victoria Holt novels which I loved to read growing up. This was just like them. I loved every minute of it and then downloaded the other two books.
