Kilmeny of the Orchard

Kilmeny of the Orchard by Lucy Maud Montgomery
By: (1874-1942)

Eric Marshall is all that a well brought-up young man should be. Handsome, steadfast, and full of ambition, he is expected to expand the Marshall & Company empire — and to marry a woman suitable to replace his mother in Nova Scotia’s finest circles.

This is a sweet, enjoyable story. It moves at a good pace and holds the listener's interest. It was read by a few readers assigned to different chapters. All speak very clearly and I no problem understanding them. Some did a better job with using varied tone inflections and voices than others but I'm always thankful when I can understand the whole book and not miss anything due to a poor narration. I recommend this book.
