Nina Clemmens was adopted as a baby. When her parents die, she goes to live with her religious aunt, who mistreats her because of her temper and her origin. Nina has been haunted by a woman in black for her whole life. She meets Dr. Monteith, who is a widower whose wife died in childbirth. Will Nina be safe with him? Will she come to know the God both her aunt and Dr. Monteith claim to serve? Will she ever be accepted despite her lack of pedigree? When a young man carelessly insults her, she vows revenge. But it is not as simple as she thought. Will she be reconciled to the one she loves? Will the mystery of the woman in black be solved? (Summary by Bria Snow) (16 hr 57 min)

Reviews

(5 stars)

Don't let the bigoted fool who rated this one star put you off. A beautifully read story.

Thoroughly enjoyable

(5 stars)

I enjoyed this book from start to finish. Reads like a Dickens tale at times because of the sufferings of the heroine. One of the themes is the contrast between true Christianity and self-righteous hypocrisy. The author was a bit too much in love with her heroine’s beauty. But that’s my only complaint. I loved the depth of characters and the plot twists. And I especially loved the father in the story.

All books should be read by native speakers. Horrible accent always spoils the whole impression. sounds Indian...

excellent read

(5 stars)

A delightful tale and a very good reader.

A Nice Story

(4 stars)

This story was sometimes quite predictable. The contrast between a true follower of Christ and a follower of form is portrayed well. The reading and sound quality in some of the earlier chapters was quite bad. I skipped ahead a bit without missing too much. Ruhie (sp?) is a great reader.
