Three People

Read by TriciaG

(4.8 stars; 67 reviews)

Three boys in very different home environments start life on the same day: the pampered Pliny Hastings, the solidly brought-up Benny Phillips, and the uneducated street scamp Theodore “Tode” Mall. Their lives intertwine around the issue of "rum" and a dying mother's prayer for her little boy. A classic Pansy book with a strong temperance message. - Summary by TriciaG (9 hr 34 min)

absolutely amazing. I think everyone should read it or better yet hear it read

Pansy's perpetual message

(4 stars)

It's an interesting concept to follow 3 children born on the same day, but I do tire of the author's emphasis on the evils of rum. Even in 19th century America, there were other social ills that affected people! That being said, Pansy's books are always well written, her characters memorable and her plots strong.


(5 stars)

this is such a well told and powerful story! as one who has suffered from the horrible effects of loved ones making terrible choices while under the influence of alcohol, I wish everyone would read this book!
