(4 Sterne)

Love the story but some of the narrators were sheer anguish. Still, it IS awfully good of them to volunteer so...but really, between an overly excited, frustrated melodrama actress whose prim conclusion after her incredibly artificial reading put me in mind of Rhoda Penmark. Chuck would be better suited for the archness of Oscar Wilde, Saki or some other highly stylized and satirical author. The earnestness of early 20th century, uplifting girls' series fiction eludes him entirely. Progressive era clubwomen did not use satire to uplift society.

Very good story

(5 Sterne)

Four well off girls suddenly find their fortunes reversed after their parents die. Rather than sit around and scrape by on what little remains, three of them decide to seek their fortunes in the city. On the way, they find careers, adventure, love, and the fourth girl, who had run away. I thought it was a very sweet story, if just a wee bit fluffy. I love a happy ending tho, so this was just the thing after a long day of work. Reading and recordings were fine. Thank you for your work.

Fun Story, Varied Reading

(3,5 Sterne)

The storyline itself was was clever how the cases were solved. Readers did a good job for the most part...with there being various different readers sometimes it took a minute to adjust to new character voices, but overall an enjoyable listen!
