(4.5 stars; 30 reviews)

A night editor at a New York paper escapes to the country to avoid a nervous breakdown. Providence lands him in the middle of a loving Quaker family in time to save them from being roasted by a lightning strike. Then what could be more natural than falling in love with a girl already engaged to someone else? Truly, it was a Day of Fate for him. "Some shallow story of deep love." (Shakespeare) - Summary by LikeManyWaters (10 hr 49 min)

Reviews

good story


(4 stars)

Good story. Reader does well, but voice is maintained at too high of pitch to be comfortable to listen to for a long time.

Dream and reality


(5 stars)

I almost put it down in the first 3 chapters, but the outcome was much different than the young man's silly daydream.
