Sarah Miller's accomplished debut presents a fictionalized account of Anne Sullivan's life and her time as Helen Keller's teacher. Arriving at Ivy Green in 1887, Anne was a partially blind orphan who had been tasked with teaching the difficult blind, deaf, and mute girl to communicate. Anne quickly learned, along with Helen, that "words are a miracle".

Miss Spitfire left me aflame with joy.

The story of young Helen Keller is told through the voice of her teacher, Annie Sullivan, and what a marvelous voice it is. Miss Sullivan's own backstory is woven masterfully throughout her experiences of trying to unlock the mind 6 year old Helen.
Miss Spitfire is a triumphant story of tribute to mankind's innate intelligence, to the gift of language, and to the blessed role of a teacher.
I highly recommend this book for readers of any age.

small break between chapters necessary

The story and narrator were great. I found it sitting however the space between end of chapter and new chapter. They (the producers) could have have put a small lull between the new chapter. It was very distracting but this is a small annoyance to the producers and not in anyway to the author or narrator.
