Elnora Comstock lives with her widowed mother at the edge of Limberlost Swamp. Her mother is harsh and critical of her daughter, but Elnora is a loving girl who befriends all creatures. She is especially drawn to the beautiful moths that flutter through the trees in Limberlost. Although Elnora longs to go to high school, she has no money to pay for tuition and books. When her cruel mother refuses to help, all seems lost, until Elnora learns she can sell the rare insects she collects. Still, her journey through high school and college will be full of challenges - and surprises. First published in 1909, Gene Stratton-Porter's classic tale is a marvelous lesson in the powers of compassion and determination. Whether you remember this book from your childhood, or are meeting it for the first time, Elnora's shining personality will capture your heart. Her gentle spirit is conveyed in each sentence by narrator Christina Moore.

    " This is another book that I read because of my book club. We had the 1990 movie of this when my kids were growing up. They seemed to like it, but it never was a movie I was excited to watch. I didn't think I was going to like the book, and almost didn't read it. I thought I would be able to join in the conversation because of watching the movie many years ago. I second guessed myself thinking that it had been so many years since I had seen the movie, I would not remember all of the story line, so I decided I better read it. I am so glad I did! What a delightful story. Maybe some day there will be a movie made that is as good as the book. I would highly recommend this book. "

    " My grandma gave me this book as a little girl and I re-read it for the first time in years. I think it is a very nostalgic story for me, but I like it! "
