(4,5 Sterne)

Listen to the 1st book , "Freckles" 1st, by the same author, also available on Librivox.

Amazing Book, Good Readers!

(5 Sterne)

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this rendition of what is, in my eyes, a wonderful classic. A Girl of the Limberlost is one of my favorite books! Gene Stratton Porter is an artist when it comes to using enchanting style and word choice to convey the thoughts and experiences of her delightful characters. The readers also do a good job using tonal variance, making this book not only a good story, but a much appreciated listen.

Every girl should hear this story. An incredible balance of sugary sweet wholesomeness and dark realism. This is a powerful tale of morality and dignity. On a slightly negative note ch 16 and 17 (i think) were read by a soft spoken woman (named ankala?) who is so difficult to understand and mispronounced several words so badly that I had to rewind to puzzle them out.

I know this is fiction but there are humble, generous, hard working, and loving humans that are forged in suffering like Eleanor. Unfortunately, hardship and suffering leaves the majority, ugly, bitter, lazy and ungrateful There is beauty in this author's protagonist as she takes even more joy in another's healing and happiness and not just her own.

This story was well written for it's time and an enjoyable story with timeless truths skillfully woven in for the listening ear.

I have loved her stories for 60 years. Never tiring or trite.
