This charming, old-fashioned story of a girl growing up during the depression will convince you that anything is possible. Against a backdrop of authentic hardship and despair, 13-year-old Virginia Eade discovers the true source of happiness. A doctor's daughter, Virginia spends her days dreaming of romance with the two Charlies - Charles Lindburgh and Charlie Chaplin. Soon Virginia is forced to give up her room to less fortunate relatives, and failed banks, closed shops, and breadlines crop up in her insulated world. When her father asks her to accompany him as he provides much needed medical care in the notorious hobo village, Virginia's life is changed forever. The 1930s become poignantly real with the novel's wealth of period detail, providing a dramatic backdrop for a message of hope and compassion. Kate Forbes' narration of this best-selling inspirational novel is guaranteed to touch your heart. She so skillfully portrays Virginia and conveys the ambiance of the depression era that the result is truly magical. Download and start listening now!

    " The back of my copy, borrowed from the library says sums this book up best, "a story to touch your heart and stay with you forever". Loved it - the characters, the story, the message. "

    " I've never read anything by Ann Tatlock before and I found her to be a very gifted writer. I enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it for teens. It has a great message without being "preachy." And the father/daughter relationship that was portrayed, full of love, respect, and faithfulness, was refreshing to read. It was a well-researched look at America during the Great Depression. I will be looking for more books by Tatlock. "
