Listener Opinions

    " I liked the story a lot, but Elnora's character bothered me. I know she's supposed to be held up as an ideal, but she's not my ideal. She acts like she doesn't care what people think, but then a second later her world is ending because appearances are so important to her. Her life doesn't seem horrible to me. Life with her mother doesn't seem to be as bad as the author makes it out to be--maybe I relate too well to her mother. I admire the characteristics of doing the right thing and being considerate of others, but I think Elnora is too conceited. "

    " I'm re-reading this one....a classic from growing up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gwen | 2/2/2014

    " This was one of my favorite childhood reads. I loved the detail and the story of a girl that does amazing things in her life with just a little imagination and determination. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 1/29/2014

    " I really liked this book. It had great informtion about moths, the characters were well developed. I loved how you not only saw metamorphosis in moths, but also in the people in the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pioden | 1/27/2014

    " This, and Freckles, also by Porter, are examples of beautiful classic writing, views of a time gone by. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Betty | 1/24/2014

    " It started off being interesting, but got a bit schmaltsy at the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shelley Hw | 1/18/2014

    " I read this one because my mother loved it so much, but it didn't thrill me in the same way. I found it hard to sympathise with Elnora. I found her hollow, vacant, and shallow (if not a bit manipulative). The mother was an interesting character, but the story wanders off. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jac S. | 1/9/2014

    " I'm torn between placing this on my 'best ever reads' shelf and the 'young adult' shelf. This is an amazing and unique book; very compelling and wonderful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy Marler | 12/27/2013

    " This is a sweet, slow moving book of a young girl, elnora Comstock, who learns of life and love through ordinarey experiences. The book is full of the smells of the forest, the kindness of friends and in the end, the joy of a tender romance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margaret | 12/19/2013

    " This was a video and of course I liked the book on cd way better than the movie. The movie was medioker at best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimber | 12/7/2013

    " A very sweet book. She has no guile. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Victoria | 11/26/2013

    " This book really painted a picture of a different world for me. Very much like the Alcott books in its moral tone, and similarly romantic. I loved it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christy | 6/4/2013

    " Read this a long time ago. I remember that the first half was really interesting, but the second half was not as good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindy | 4/26/2013

    " I love a good old-fashioned love story! It was too little too late, for my taste, however. :) But the rest of the story is wonderful--I love the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 3/20/2013

    " This was long. It took us forever. The kids (especially the girls) liked it a lot. It's pretty old fashioned and the main character, while like able, is impossibly perfect. Still, it was a worthwhile read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginny | 2/4/2013

    " Elnora Comstock, entering high school. Growing up at the edge of Limberlost swamp, lacks so much. How she uses the things she knows about nature to become a mature, intelligent woman. Written in 1909. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Duana | 12/4/2012

    " A lovely book... for children maybe. Very simplistic "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kerry | 10/3/2012

    " One part Anne of Green Gables, one part Little House on the Prairie, a dash of field guide, and stir in a health helping of the Indiana Swamp. May Elnora Comstock win you over and dazzle you with the wonders of her environment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crissy | 6/13/2012

    " This is a fantastic book that my Great Grandmother referred me to. I highly recommend it to any girl, young woman, or woman to read. Fantastic tale of following dreams in the face of many obstacles. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keith Slade | 12/15/2011

    " Good novel somewhat in the nature of Anne of Green Gables. Young woman is helped by nature to heal. I was looking at the time for something like Anne of Green Gables and found this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sissy | 12/3/2011

    " Elnora is a charming character who grows up living near a swamp, and she loves nature. She collects moths for her hobby, but when she finds out that her moths are very rare and valuable, she is able to sell them and send herself through high school and college. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 7/14/2011

    " Certainly of a kinder time and full of quaint expressions and language useage. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Are | 6/26/2011

    " I vaugely remebered reading this as a teen and decided to give it another read. It was a very sweet story of a girl's tansition into womanhood and her changing relationship with her mother. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 5/20/2011

    " So nice to have a book I couldn't put down again! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hill3569 | 5/13/2011

    " This is a great relaxing, no thinking involved, feel good, happy ending book and you will learn about butterflies too! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trina | 5/13/2011

    " Loved it! Great book about determination, resourcefulness and kindness. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 5/12/2011

    " Read this book for my book club and enjoyed it. I'm passing this to my mom cause I think she'd really like it too. Set about 100 years ago, interesting, changing characters, and you weren't always sure where the story was going. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 5/10/2011

    " I enjoyed this book and think any girl should read it. It hearkens back to a different time when love is portrayed innocently and sweetly. For that alone, it gets my 4 stars, but I also really like the protagonist, Elnora. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jayna | 5/8/2011

    " Ok, so this book was written in the classic 1909 spell-everything-out-for-the-reader way that is at once quaint and annoying. But you do like the main character, even though I wished that everyone else wasn't so one dimensional! Overall a cutesy moral tale that never hurt anyone! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Genine | 5/7/2011

    "
    Iread this as a young girl and loved it. I still think of it fondly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christa | 4/25/2011

    " The Gene Stratton-Porter books are a special connection with my grandma and Southern Indiana. The story is sweet and innocent and exciting and documents an interesting bit of lost American history on my back doorstep. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rrshively | 4/14/2011

    " I would have really loved this book when about 12 or 13, and I liked it when I read it in my old age. Even though I only gave it 3 stars, it interested me in Gene Stratton-Porter, and I plan to read all of his Liberlost area books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 4/10/2011

    " It took me a bit to get past the unusual writing style (maybe because it was written so long ago?) but I ended up really enjoying this book. "
