"It goes without saying that life was hard during the Great Depression, but this book brings that home with the touching story of two children whose mother leaves to find a better life on her own. Their father, emotionally drained by the loss of his wife, is hardly equipped to deal with the children, much less the far-reaching influence of wealthy neighbors with their own agendas. The sensitivity and intensity of Judith Ivey's performance add dimension that makes the audio version of this book hard to resist. Her characterizations are compelling and unforgettable as she makes good use of accents and tonality. She keeps the plot moving forward, looking toward a better future. J.E.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
