Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 2/20/2014

    " This was a very interesting story about four generations of women and the differences they made in their lives (from helping slaves escape on the underground railroad, to prohibition, to women getting the right to vote, to helping business succeed while most of the men were gone to war). Some parts were slightly hard to follow when switching between characters, but overall a very enjoyable read. "

    " What I liked about this book was the layers... the four generations of women who told their stories. There were some parts of the story that I didn't like, (as in, I would have changed!) but overall, it was a nice, easy read. Harriet is so funny!! And Grandma Bebe is even funnier. But I still think she should have married Neal... read the book, and I think you'll agree with me!! =) "

    " Interesting story of 3 generations of women but writing style was slightly disjointed it seemed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 1/22/2014

    " Not my absolute favorite of hers, but still a good, uplifting little read. It did inspire me to try to be a better person and get up, get out, and do something important. The main character in the story was the only one I didn't really like all that much and the ending was a bit disappointing, but overall a good book. "

    " I love Lynn Austin. This was a great book. I am not aure it is as good as some of her others, but I like it a lot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine | 1/9/2014

    " This book goes through four generations of women, beginning around the time of the Civil War. Each woman fights for her beliefs and looks to God in her struggles. It is a very motivating book, and while there were sad parts, there were also funny parts. My favorite character was Bebe. She went through a lot, and yet still remained a kind, caring person. "

    " What a nice way to end 2012. I hated for this book to end because I wanted to continue to to visit with these remarkable women to see how they met the challenges and injustices that came their way. I would love a sequel. "

    " Lynn Austin has become one of my absolute favorite authors. She does an amazing job blending a great story with historical times and great Christian messages. I buy these books for Ashlyn but I can't get enough of them myself. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 11/30/2013

    " Set during the Prohibition era, so I was fascinated by the story. I love how Lynn Austin can take you back and forth in time without confusion. This author is a MUST for anyone who enjoys Historical Fiction novels, Christian novels, and/or a great combination of both! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marleah | 8/17/2013

    " Another great inspiring story by Lynn Austin. She is quickly becoming a favorite in the Christian-Fiction genre. This story spans 70 years and four generations of women and includes The Civil War and the emancipation of the slaves, prohibition, the Suffrage movement and WWI. Highly recommended!! "

    " I really like Lynn Austin's writing style. Easy to read (and listen to if you are into audible books). I like the way the book goes back and forth from the grandmother's story to the grandaughter's story. "

    " Interesting but cheesy. I did appreciate the insight into how it was during the last days of slavery, prohibition, and suffrage. I had a hard time following the flashbacks. "
