Subject: Wonderful and uplifting
Loved this book and the reader does a wonderful job of bringing Katherine to life, from egoistic teenager through to a wife and mother, friend and believer who is humbled by the trials of this life but uplifted by her developing faith. I have listened to it 5 or 6 times I love it that much!

Excellent, thank you for this audio book. The reader, Theresa Downing has gentle, respectful tone and did justice to the book. Her reading did not distract from the content of the book, in fact it added to it. I initially had feared a reader would detract from the richness of the written words but this is very good and so well worth listening to.

This is a slow-paced, well written story that is full of interesting dialogue, which gave me a sense of the ideology of someone in a different era. The story kept my attention very nicely, and I enjoyed the richness of the language. It is definitely written with more formal terms than is commonly used in current day writings. As a result, I found it a refreshing read.
