Wonderful story and the reader was terrific. I will lol for other books read by Abagail Rasmussen.

Precious story, introducing the Lord Jesus to children as the Good Shepherd. Also brings to life the “life behind the scenes” of traveling actors of the era. Very loveble characters. I wish Toby had not died. (That’s my only complaint of the author). The reader was wonderful.

Lovely Story! Well read!

I listened to this book dozens of times, but, even then there is something about this book that makes you feel like it’s your first time hearing it. Very touching and 100 recommended. Thank you for reading Abigail Rasmussen!

Sweet story

I'm a sucker for stories about sweet little orphans. In this one, the author has quite a prejudice against fairs, theatres and circuses, however she still makes a good point. Behind glitz, glamour and fame there is often a reality that is far more painful and difficult than we could imagine. Things aren't always as they appear to be. Many thanks to the narrator for her excellent reading.

A very sweet and touching story. Highly recommended! The content of the story is appropriate even for children, and there are good moral lessons conveyed through it. The reader is excellent, with good annunciation, tone, clarity, and expressiveness.

This is a very well written view of the life a the young girl Rosali and how the Good Shepherd leads. A good clean read for any age.

An excellent narrator, telling a really lovely story into another time and place, but with a timeless changeless message of love and redemption. Thank you.
