A Hedge Fence

Read by TriciaG

(4.7 stars; 21 reviews)

Twelve stories, one for each month of the year, which first list a few Bible verses then relate how those verses took effect in a young person's life. The first 10 chapters are letters written by Frank Hudson to his cousin Renie. Frank is a boy who gets into trouble when he doesn't think before acting. He receives Bible verses as a kind of "hedge fence" he has to jump through or climb over to do the wrong things; they scratch him and give him a prick, and remind him of what is the right way to go. The final two chapters are about Annie and David, aged 13 and 12 - little episodes in their life relating to a Bible verse, and how by heeding it, it made a difference to them. - Summary by TriciaG (1 hr 42 min)

Reminds Me Of Picking Wild Blackberrys

(3.5 stars)

This collection of stories gives me an itch in the back of my brain. I genuinely like the character of Frank, so earnest about wanting to do right, but needing help--don't we all? So the first 10 stories are great, but the last two jarred me. Maybe they wouldn't have if I hadn't listened to it all in one day. Tricia did her usual good job with the narration, so there's that...

A Sweet, Worthwhile Story

(5 stars)

I enjoyed this book a lot. It’s a bit preachy as many Pansy books seem to modern audiences, but really meaningful connections were made between scripture and how it can effect your life. I hope to listen to this again someday. The reader did a good job.

(5 stars)

Oh how I wish I had the stories from Pansy when I was growing up! I think I might have made better choices! Great book. Great readers!

Beautiful Stories

I loved the Bible verses and their applications to every day life.
