Written in 1909 - glimpse into the period

I nearly quit listening 15 minutes into the book, I found the audio and writing style to be irritating and the combination of both was driving me mad. I decided to relax and consider it a historical lesson of writing styles and values of the time period after learning it was written in 1909, back then the New York Times thought it was great and it was widely read. Elnora collects moths and being unfamiliar with them I found a web site that shows the moths of the Limberlost and it made it a bit more interesting. Very Pollyanna-ish, proper and could use a good editing to reduce the redundancy. I probably won't read again but about mid-way was invested enough in plot enough to rewind a part I missed and listen more carefully. Could be a fun home school read to explore the values and moths.

Excellent story; imperfect audio

This is a fantastically fun and sweet story. i would easily give it 5 stars, except that the audio quality shifts throughout and is frequently quite poor, sometimes with echo, and sometimes quite muddy.
