The third book in the Marcia Schuyler/Miranda trilogy, this story focuses on the irrepressible Miranda Griscom. She has repeatedly rejected a wealthy suitor's proposals of marriage. The townsfolk are puzzled: why would she give up such a chance? But "jest plain, hombly, turn-upnose, freckle-faced, red-haired M'randy Griscom" has a long-secret love for a man who was accused of murder, whose escape she orchestrated.

The story is good but please, dear reader, take the sing song out of your voice. Practice making your reading sound like your natural talking. Some words are naturally stressed or they're spoken louder, or softer. And the end of a sentence, pause. Listen to other readers, the good ones, and you'll hear what I mean. It's a lot of work to record a book; make it a worthy effort. Thanks, and I hope you will take this criticism as constructive. I appreciate your efforts.

I absolutely LOVED this book! The whole trilogy is great, but 'Miranda' has it all: fun, intrigue, warmth, travel, love, and Miranda's own quaint turn of phrase! A unique heroine!

a mildly mildly interesting read


(3 stars)

the story is rather interesting, but at times a bit slow and redundant. the reader does a good job and is consistent. the readers voice inflection took me a little while to get used to, but then it was okay.

The Best of the Three


(5 stars)

To me, this is the best of the trilogy. Miranda blossoms into the courageous, loving young woman we hoped she would become. Full of Faith, hope, and Love, GLH fills this book with suspense and thrills.

Great

Great book and great reader. Don't listen to the negative reviews. They don't use God's name in vein. They also don't make bad people look good. Those people who say those things are just like the villains in this book. This book gives out a great message. Judge and ye shall be judge by God. Unlike some of her other books this book was not full of religion and didn't seem so brainwashy. It does have religion but not to much this time. I'm not a Christian by the way. I'm a Muslim.

Does not disappoint!

Miranda is the culmination of GLH's Marcia Schuyler trilogy. I had put off listening to the trilogy, but once started, could not put it down. It was so interesting getting to know and see the development of the key characters throughout the series, especially Miranda, who seems to always be at the bottom of things. You learn quickly that there is never a dull moment with Miranda! Tricia G improves with every book.Her character voices are excellent and she is always enunciates perfectly. Thank you Tricia G and great job!!

I didn't appreciate the minced oaths (gosh, golly, etc). It is supposed to be a Christian book written by a Christian author and yet she has the characters taking God's name in vain. Also she has the main characters and heroes be ones who are not under proper authority or living out godliness but somehow they are more righteous because their heart was right. This isn't Christianity. Yes, there are self-righteous religious people who don't have loving attitudes but that doesn't make unbelievers godly because they are more loving.

Great Story, Ok Reader


(4 stars)

Lovely story! The reader performs every sentence in exactly the same manner: She raises her voice in the middle and drops off at the end. It gives a rocking, singing sound to the sentences. I took off a star for that. If you're okay with that, you'll love it. For people who've never read Grace Livingston Hill, she's old-fashioned, hearty, always teaches a lesson, and fairly predictable--and with all those traits, bad or good, her stories keep me coming back like comfort food.
