A tale well told.

(4 Sterne)

There are only a few characters in this book, but they are distinctive and memorable. This vintage book is full of humor, sights, smells, humming of bees, sunlight and old fashioned values. I would like to know these people. I found it delightful. There are multiple readers which usually put me off on audio books, but this one is an exception. I enjoyed them all.

Another Masterpiece

(5 Sterne)

I felt like the name of this book was so boring, so I almost didn't read it! I am so glad I did! It is so beautifully written, has a great plot, and the imagery makes me see each scene in my mind as if I was there. I didn't want it to end.
