Good Story

(4 stars)

I have to say at certain points during the tale I felt quite angry, would we have allowed ourselves to be manipulated as Pheobe was, I would hope not. Happy ending apart, I was astounded when the wedding dress fitted, I'm not sure a dress made for me in childhood would have ever been of the right size all those years later, and the shoes, but it was a fairy tale so I suppose there was a bit of magic involved.

The the storyline is very pleasant. The readers intonations take a little time to get used to, but once you adjust to it it's okay. I enjoyed this book

TriciaG has a special gift:

(5 stars)

TriciaG knows exactly what books i will live and reads them! isn't that sweet of her? GLH and she are a wonderful pairing! (i have listened to this series now than a dozen times because it's an especially favorite.) i have many teeth- grinding moments when i want to reach into my speaker and wring certain characters' necks, but that again speaks to TriciaG's delivery.

Tiresome, tacky, tiny minded reviewers need to adjust their ears, not the narrator her style. Ungrateful complainers; go make your own version, if you dare. It wont come close to the excellent job this narrator does, I'll bet you.

Love this story and the narrator did a wonderful job! Tricia G. keep up the good work! Grace Livingston Hill continues to amaze me with her wit and Charm. On to the next book in the series!

Should've been titled 'Miranda Saves Another One"

(1 stars)

Character synopsis: Hero: Knight in Shining Armour Heroine: Miranda Damsel in distress: Phoebe Honestly, if the author was writing to educate women about why NOT to be a relatively weak willed, cowardly, and imprudent (imprudence in this case being that she does not confide her troubles to those that might help i.e. her brother or even David. So in this case prudence (married with humility) as in justly pursuing help and u-s-i-n-g h-e-r w-o-r-d-s instead of being dictated to and controlled by her fears) female, she does so in the character of Phoebe Deane. The only parts worth reading are the ones with Miranda in them :) and unfortunately she mostly only shows up in times of crisis of which the are many however you have to listen to all the stuff in between....:) The Christian theme is at best, very weak.


(5 stars)

A lovely romantic story with interesting plot. Nothing extraordinary, but I liked it very much. It is a soothing calm book about love, dignity, virtue, good and evil. Nathaniel was very good and trusting, Phoebe had a spine and always defended herself, which I liked a lot, and Miranda is an absolutely amazing girl, so strong and clever! I have to add that the reader improved her intonations very much, I listened with pleasure. Thank you, Tricia D.!

wonderful story

(3.5 stars)

I loved this story. It's a story about good verses evil. Its a about an orphan who had come to live with her older step brother and his family. A sister in law who hates her but raises her anyway. God always has a way of working things out for us.
