A father's wounded heart. A mother's patient love. An eager boy, an impetuous girl, and, above all, the healing power of nature. These are the classic ingredients that fill Virginia Sorensen's Newbery Award-winning novel with a tender power and lift it to classic status.

First published in 1956, Miracles on Maple Hill is almost uncanny in its appeal for today's young listeners. For here is the story of a father returned from war in a distant land, wounded in body but even more in spirit, and a family desperate for him to be returned to wholeness, a wholeness they hope can be found on Maple Hill.

With language that is tender, precise, evocative, and yet fiercely powerful, Sorensen draws listeners into a year in the family's life, a year filled with small miracles that yield great reward.

Lovingly brought to life by the Full Cast Family, this is a recording for the entire family to cherish.

    " If I read this once, as a chile, I read it 100 times. And it's as good now as it was then! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenna | 2/12/2014

    " Newberry Winner. Super cute children's book. The little girl in this book reminds me of Anne of Green Gables. Endearing. I didn't realize until after I finished the book that the author's ancestors came across the US with Brigham Young and much of her stories are based off of their experience. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Khinna | 2/6/2014

    " I just finished this book, and it reminded me so much of the "Little House on the Prairie" series. Marley and her family move from the big city to Maple Hill and discover everyday miracles; sap from trees, making goat cheese, colors of the seasons, and the well-being of their father. Definetly, a great book for wanting to be more self-sufficient myself, and it helped me learn about flowers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy Budetti | 1/10/2014

    " This is a very simple, heart-warming story of a family that looks for healing in a small abandoned farm house, the potential of the land and the loving embrace of the neighbors. I pre-read this for a girls Newbery Book Club that I lead for girls aged 8-12. This is a feel good, nostalic look at what life could be like in a simpler time, simpler place. Made me want to pack up and go "live off the land". Well, not totally, but you get the picture :) "

    " We listened to this in the car. I liked the appreciation for nature and beauty and seasons that we got from this book. I liked the message of healing in God's creations and of a slower pace. The brother-sister relationship bothered me sometimes, but we were able to discuss it. "
