Not Impressed

(0.5 stars)

Update: just finished listening to the whole book. Most of the readers did a good job. Elsie is *perfect*. She is few character flaws, but yet she is being constantly punished for mistakes or things she didn't do. She is supposed to be eight, but she acts much older. She quotes scripture for everything as if she's an adult preaching a sermon. The type of abuse she has to endure leaves me wondering, "Why did the author make this up for a children's book?"

Touching! very sweet

Sweet story that leaves you longing for the next book!!!

Elsie is a Christian role model for girls

(5 stars)

We just finished this book for the second time. The way Elsie overcomes her many challenges through faith in Jesus Christ and trust in His power to save is inspiring to me and my girls. We love the scriptural quotations throughout the book. I suppose most girls of Elsie's age might not know the Bible as well as she does, but that doesn't spoil the story for us at all; it just makes me want to know and love the scriptures better myself. Thank you to all the readers for making this audiobook accessible to us. May God bless you for your kind service!

I tried this book but it was to fast , to unclear and I couldn’t fall asleep to it - other then that it was a great and interesting story. 🙂

Too fast and inaudible

(2 stars)

Unfortunately wasn't able to proceed past Chapter 1, as the reading is much too fast, fuzzy and too poor quality to understand.

great book ,very sweet.
