Subject: Sweet
This story was sweet, although perhaps a little dull for adult readers. It's in the vein of Heidi- irascible older man who's heart is won over to both God and humanity through the love and faith of a little girl. However, it's a much simpler story than Heidi, with fewer, less memorable characters. Although it is somewhat sentimental and predictable, it is still worth a listen if you're looking for something light and innocent. This book is also appropriate for young readers. There is a single reader throughout who does a good job. She has nice pacing and is pleasant to listen to.
