Subject: Nellie Blye - great every time.
Great book. Interesting in the fact, the era it was written. A single woman alone. The chivalry of the men who treated her with respect yet went with her as a male presence. Canton is a bit graphic when detailing tortures for criminals. I have listened to this 3 times. The reader is excellent!! I recommend.
