Excellent Rendition of a Classic STory

I have read this Classic book several times over the years. This is first time on Audio. The Narration was PERFECT.
This is such a delightful book it makes you happy just to hear it. I wish there we more like books like these to
add balance to all the serious and sometimes depressing books on the market.
We need more happy wholesome books to brighten our lives .

Pleasant enough

Just ok. The format of telling the story through one-sided letters became tedious, and the story was very predictable. I thought the narrator over-acted in her reading.

Beautiful, Absolutely Beautiful

The story made me listen nonstop trying to anticipate the ending. Let me add…the ending was much appreciated!

The narrator absolutely ranks number one in my Audible Library of 60 books!

Immediately I will seek out other books authored by Ms Webster. And, I will give chance to any book read by Megan McGinnis! She was Magnificent!!!

Just lovely

I fell in love with the story through the musical first—which I highly recommend. I’ve since read it twice and the second was listening to the glorious audiobook narrated by Megan who really embodies every ounce of the spirit I imagine Judy Abbott has. She reads with all of the vibrancy of spirit one could hope!
