Neighbors


Read by Anne Fletcher

(4.8 stars; 58 reviews)

The final story featuring the inhabitants of the growing township of Innisfield: Mrs Philura Pettibone’s story reaches its long-awaited conclusion and Miss Malvina’s life is changed forever by the arrival of various ”fur’ners”. Published in 1917, with America’s entry into the war in Europe imminent, the story dwells on friendships, the melting- pot of nationalities that make up the USA, and the personal struggle between pacifism and patriotism in wartime. While the writing keeps its gently ironic style for most of the time, it also features more serious and sometimes rather melodramatic themes. - Summary by Anne Fletcher

Pretty good


(4.5 stars)

I am sorry this appears to be the final entry in this series; there should be so much more written about the people in this town. I feel as though I am reluctantly leaving friends and neighbors to an unknown fate. Having grown up in a small New England town myself, these people, their attitudes, and their surroundings are quite familiar to me. I would have preferred to have seen a lot more of Philura in this last book, but the encounters we did have with her were good ones. Well read by the Librivox volunteer.

it's like Seinfeld :-) circa 1900

(5 stars)

I've enjoyed listening to all four books, but the last one made me feel like I've said a final farewell to some very dear friends😔. I wish there'd been a sequel as book 4 left me wanting to know more about the characters. The reader is beyond excellent!!!!!

Commitment to truth


(4 stars)

Interesting story of another time in history when neighborly loyalty was a thing. I enjoyed hearing the heart of the different characters and how the truths of conscience helped them make a better decision even though it was hard for them.


(3 stars)

Anne Fletcher is a marvelous reader. I’d listen to anything she read. Sadly, This final book in the series wasn’t nearly as interesting and sweet as the first three.

Good book
