Gelesen von LibriVox Volunteers

(4,914 Sterne; 70 Bewertungen)

When country girl Polly Milton comes to visit her friend Fanny Shaw, city life isn’t all she had hoped it would be. Thrown in the middle of a dysfunctional family, Polly remembers the teachings of her wise mother, and does her best to plant seeds of cheerfulness, honesty, and respect -- and teaching virtue by example.

Four years later, Polly returns to scratch out a living as a music teacher, but finds herself mixed up in much more than piano lessons. Through heartache and love triangles, temptation and tragedy, Polly’s story shows that even the dreams of old-fashioned girls can come true.

i love it

(5 Sterne)

Great book! I’ve read the book and this is just as good(or better)! I am a big reader and usually prefer to read a book rather then listen to it but not in this case! 😂 lol. Also great readers! Thanks so much for your contribution!

Very good!

(5 Sterne)

This is a very good book. Also well read. Though the story dates back to a different era, it is still easy to identify with many of the thoughts and situations. Girls should listen to this book. It is wholesome and gives insight into the way men and women think and why they think like that and why they act they way they do.

STANDING OVATION

THIS troupe of readers was spectacular!!! This is a great book, but poor reading and editing would have absolutely ruined it!!! instead, they did credit to LMA's book and actually IMPROVED on the original!

I loved this audiobook! The readers are amazing
