Story was interesting with twist and turns. it had plenty of villans. Most of the narrators were descent.

Very Suspenseful.

(5 stars)

Seems like a long book, but my, how it flies by. Barbara Hale was my favorite reader. I have been listening to some of Grace Livingston Hill’s other books and they just keep getting better and better! I also recommend another author, similar to Grace Livingston Hill, ”Pansy” (Grace’s aunt)

Romance, suspense and adventure!

(4.5 stars)

A girl of strength and character faces what seem to be insurmountable challenges. No spoilers! There were some great readers, but the number and variety of reading styles, volumes, accents, etc was a bit of a distraction.

(5 stars)

Rensselaer (Ren-sel-ear) is a historical name in NY. Very entertaining story in the style of the author. I enjoyed listened to readers with whom I was previously unacquainted. Thank you!


(5 stars)

good listening, couldn't stop in the middle of the night, story kept me in suspense

the book was good

(3 stars)

the book was really interesting but the audiobook made it seem a bit dull b'coz none of them have a single reader version so that's a tad bit dull about the book. the plot is good and can be listened to as a one time thing.

A Contrast of Treachery and Faithfulness

(5 stars)

A worthy read from Grace Livingston Hill. A story of trust, faithfulness, and treachery.
