Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“An exquisite, sometimes painfully touching tale.”  New York Times
“MacLachlan...has written an affecting tale for children...The tale gently explores themes of abandonment, loss, and love.”  Amazon.com editorial review
“Glenn Close performs this wonderful tale just as it should be. Her melodious voice, combined with the musical interludes that mark transitions, lends a magical quality to the story. [A] magnificent performance...The regional accents are done well, and the characterizations are true to the author’s intent. This is a moving tale of the simple joys in life. It is hard to imagine there could be a better match between reader and story.”  AudioFile
“A book that is filed with wisdom, gentle humor, and the practical concerns necessary for a satisfying life.”   School Library Journal
Glenn Close narrates Patricia MacLachlan’s beautiful novels on this fine audio collection...Close, who played the role of Sarah in the Hallmark Hall of Fame production of the first book, creates distinct voices for each character without ever resorting to theatrics...A beautiful collusion of an excellent story with a perfect narrator, and a treat for all listeners.” School Library Journal (audio review)
