A great story. A good recording. The voice was easily understood.

This was a wonderful, uplifting story.

Excellent book

(4 Sterne)

The book is amazing. I appreciate the effort the reader put in - she emanates a love for the story and characters - but a slight lisp, a bit of a whine, and rushed reading put a damper on the experience. I would recommend slowing down the playback speed to enjoy it more fully. I did prefer this reading to the other option on Librivox, which has an assortment of readers.

This book from my youth was referenced in a novel. As I listened I wondered if I got the connection to nature. I think it may have been seeds planted. I listened from a different place. I thoroughly enjoyed.

I love this book!

I read it several years ago and just remembered it recently. The reader is excellent at showing emotion and feeling in her voice. This is one of my favorite classics!

Worth hearing!

(5 Sterne)

Excellent reader! Refreshing to hear a story about a young woman who was kind, long suffering yet able to forgive, intelligent and cautiously wise with her heart.

I love this book, and the reader did an excellent job.
