No one writes like Nesbitt!

What a delightful story of delightful children and their adventures. And Karen Savage does a great job bringing the characters to life. Thank you! I needed this story and it did not disappoint. one note: Karen reads very fast at first, but as she brought the characters to life, I did not notice the speed. Maybe there was an adjustment I should have made on my part. Karen is one of my favorite readers.

I LOVE THIS STORY! I am a 10 year old who is very into Librivox. I hope that when I grow up I will be as good a reader as you, Miss or Mrs Savage.

Great book and reader

(5 Sterne)

Feb 2019 Listened to it again. Wonderful book and wonderful reader. Ten stars! I did think that the anti-Russian political aspects of the book - the rescued Russian ex Siberian convict, and Father's false incarceration for spying for Russia - this was before the Bolsheviks seized power - was rather incongruous with the rest of the book. Interesting analysis of the book here (of special interest to the Bookworm reviewer below): https://www.theguardian.com/stage/2005/mar/26/theatre.booksforchildrenandteenagers May 4, 2014 It's great, and Karen Savage does the best reading job ever!

Delightful and satisfying.

(5 Sterne)

This is the kind of story that encourages us to carry on amidst hardships. The children's focus was what seemed conducted them through thier great sorrow into courageous behavior.

I haven't heard this story before, but it is quite delightful. I must give my warmest approbation to the reader, Karen Savage, as always. She is such a talented narrator.

Heartwarming

(5 Sterne)

A marvelous, heartwarming story. Beautiful language, brilliantly narrated. Nesbit’s stories simply beg to be read aloud; it’s a delight to hear them performed with such excellence.

(5 Sterne)

A delightful tale of the human condition and innocence of childhood which allows them to have undying faith in others; which is a blessing to us all.
