Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Cynthia Bishop, The Full Cast Family

Children Ages 8+ • 4.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1956

A full cast perfectly conveys the sweetness of this classic. After their father/husband returns from a WWII prison camp, a family tries to put itself back together by taking themselves back to the country, where they will farm, make maple sugar, and heal in the place their ancestors built on Maple Hill. You can feel the deep emotional attachment each cast member brings to this heartfelt production. With its gentle tone, lilting guitar segues, and occasional folksongs, this is a production that evokes the same emotional tenor as Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House books. This story is perfect for teachers and parents to share with children, or for a child to snuggle up with alone. D.G.
