Little Meg's Children


Read by fiddlesticks

(4.8 stars; 28 reviews)

This is the touching and endearing story of Little Meg and her trials and difficulties as she does her best to look after 'her children' after their mother dies.

Father is away at sea and is expected every day, but when father's ship comes in he is not aboard! With the help of her new friend and neighbour Kitty, she finds out that he was 'took bad' on the other side of the world, who knows when or if he will ever make it back. Meanwhile, Little Meg must take care of Robby and baby. There are better days and worse days. There is the wonderful trip to Temple Gardens and the difficult process of pawning away their best clothes so Meg can buy food and coal. But through everything, Meg's simple childlike faith in God carries her through as each of her prayers are faithfully answered and a happy ending comes in sight! (fiddlesticks) (2 hr 8 min)

Reviews

Rather sad


(3 stars)

A very sad story, with lots of morals and a happy ending. Although it is a children's book I suggest parents screen it before their children listen to it. It's a good story, but it does deal with a number of adult topics.


(5 stars)

I love this story! I've read it numerous times before I found it on librovox! The reader does an excellent job! This book remains one of my many favorites. :)

well read and sweet to hear. encouraged by the simple faith of Meg. Gave a glimpse of how London was centuries ago. Worth listening

The story might have been good but the reader's voice is so monotonous it is very hard to listen to.

very moving story


(5 stars)

Almost unbearably emotional but in a good way.
