A Sevenfold Trouble

Read by TriciaG

(4.7 stars; 59 reviews)

This story is an honest record of what we, who are all writers, and all very intimate friends, have seen and heard as we looked on at the lives of certain people in whom we are deeply interested. We used to talk about these people when we sat together after the day's work was done.

"They don't understand one another," said one of the ministers, "else there wouldn't be much trouble."

"I think the little girl means better than she is supposed to," said Grace.

"And I know the two boys are not half so mean as they are made out to be," declared Paranete.

"They are like a great many people in this world," interposed the other minister, "working at cross purposes; making failures of their lives, just because they do not try to put themselves in one another's places."

"Making failures, also, because they are trying to carry their own burdens without the help of the only real Helper," said one of the ladies.

"O, yes! of course," spoke out both ministers; "that is really the foundation source of their troubles, as of most others."

Said Faye Huntington: "Let's write a book about them! One that will help others, as well as them. We can tell their story, but tell it in such a way that they won't even recognize themselves; they will only know that it fits, somehow, and helps." (Summary taken from the preface) (9 hr 8 min)

(5 stars)

*I have started reviewing and dating my posts because i hey into a book and realize i already loved it. * June 2021 July 2021 i was just thinking- I'm a huge Tricia G fan, but it would be cool to hear a version with different readers to represent each co-author :-)

An Interesting Collaboration

(4 stars)

'Pansy and 6 of her fellow Christian authors (including her niece Grace Livingston Hill) work together to tell the story of a fractured family. They deal with the issues of malicious gossip and the superstitions against stepmothers.

(5 stars)

Some of my favorite authors, all working together to write a book. Definitely an easy way to present the gospel to young children and to consider the choices that we make in life and how we treat one another.

(5 stars)

absolutely a marvelous experience listening to this book, the characters are so real, it's like you're right there feeling what they're going through

(4 stars)

It strikes so perfectly the true human feelings (even to the selfish self pity) you can feel the lessons as pertaining to yourself.

(5 stars)

Another beautiful story of beautifully changed lives once the mind and heart are made up to follow Jesus!

(5 stars)

I adore this wholesome, Christian book. TY Tricia G. for another good reading.

Pleasant Reading

(5 stars)

Salvation and temper are main issues in this book
