Book Description:
When country girl Polly Milton comes to visit her friend Fanny Shaw, city life isn’t all she had hoped it would be. Thrown in the middle of a dysfunctional family, Polly remembers the teachings of her wise mother, and does her best to plant seeds of cheerfulness, honesty, and respect -- and teaching virtue by example. Four years later, Polly returns to scratch out a living as a music teacher, but finds herself mixed up in much more than piano lessons. Through heartache and love triangles, temptation and tragedy, Polly’s story shows that even the dreams of old-fashioned girls can come true.Cast List: Narrator: Christine Lehman Polly Milton: Hannah MaryFanny Shaw: BookAngel7Tom Shaw: Tomas PeterMaud Shaw: Laura RileyMr. Shaw: Greg GiordanoMrs. Shaw: KHandGrandma Shaw: Beth ThomasMr. Sydney: Daniel Metivier Additional characters voiced by Adele de Pignerolles, April6090, TenorBoy, Devorah Allen, Esther ben Simonides, Jasmin Salma, Leanne Yau, lorda, Stacy Simon, thestorygirl, TJ Burns, toadoftoadhall, and Twinkle Audio edited by fiddlesticks, Maria Kasper, and Rachel
