A sentimental story of two girls living during WWI, this book demonstrates the power of faith to overcome painful circumstances. Notwithstanding their different environments, Bethan and Jodie are best friends. In spite of the few female science students at the time, Jodie goes to college, straining the friendship. Nancy Schifferdecker reads the narrative fairly well but disintegrates when portraying anger or excitement. The dialogue in which Bethan pleads for Jodie’s continued friendship sounds whiny and annoying. Nonetheless, the narrator's light and childlike voice is well suited for this tale of two innocent girls. A.G.H. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
