i only wish i knew sooner

(5 stars)

ihave learned and grown so much from the "Pansy" books. i wish i had learned long ago WHY many activities were not appropriate. i am a temperance person - a T-Totaler (i was today years old when i realized what that actually means) now. but i spent many years believing the world lies that using substances was a harmless voice/ a personal choice. i could have saved myself a few marriages and thousands of dollars had i read these as a teen instead of NOVELS. but I'm so happy to read them now.

If everyone would read the 'Pansy' books the world would be a better place!

Wonderful Story for Anyone

(5 stars)

I won't bore anyone this time with any personal references because your beautiful reading of this beautiful story lent the gift of your talent to the gift of the author. But I am truly grateful for what you are doing and for all of the Christian charity you have richly given in this and many others works. I know you will reap an abundant harvest for that charity. I wish we could reach everyone who desires to learn about God's love and for some reason has been unable to find it as I have found it again and again in listening to you. God Bless you, Tricia, and God bless Librivox.

just listened to this book again…

(5 stars)

For probably the eighth time! One of my absolute favorites! I used not to care much for the reader but after listening to her for years you get not to mind it at all. Thanks Tricia!

worth listening to

(3 stars)

This book is worth your time. I really enjoyed listening to it while working at different projects and it is one of the best chidlren's books by Isabella Alden. Try it!

A beautiful Christian story, heartwarming and funny

(5 stars)

This is one of my favourite Pansy stories, and I'm very grateful to TriciaG for taking the time to read it.

(5 stars)

Such a lovely book about God's work in a family where there seems to be no hope. The transformation is nothing short of miraculous. Highly recommended!
