Read by Laurie Banza

(4.5 stars; 10 reviews)

A harrowing and dramatic story of four siblings from Scotland who are poor and orphaned. The eldest brother, Arthur, is guardian to his two brothers and one sister. After the bank in Scotland fails, Arthur decides as family head, they will go to Canada to answer an ad to claim free farm land. Arthur is a former soldier, smart, honest, and a tremendously hard worker; his younger brothers are still in school, and Charley, the middle brother, has a lot to learn about team work. Leaving their sister behind temporarily, they board a steamer for Canada, but they have no idea of the hardships and life threatening battles that await in the untamed land. Can these young siblings survive all the adversity, and will they be able to find happiness carving out a new life? All they have is a hope. (Summary by Laurie Banza) (2 hr 20 min)

Although this was a short story, it was one of the best books I have had the pleasure of listening to! There are so many lessons that can be learned from listening to it. I will be 80 years old on my next birthday and I was fortunate enough to have a dad who was much like the main character in this book, Arthur. I have tried to teach my children and grandchildren those same lessons! The reader, Laurie Banza, did an outstanding job in bringing this book to life! M. Bradford. - 5 May 2024
