Eben McAllister longs to see the world beyond his small town. His opportunity arises when his father offers him a trip out west if he can find seven wonders in Sassafras Springs. Doubtfully, Eben sets out in search of them. He discovers that his town is full of surprises and wonders, although not the kind he expected to find. Joseph Buttler reads with a quiet cadence that easily slips listeners into another time and place, where life was simpler and people looked out for each other. Buttler's narration captures the personalities and goodness of the characters in this caring and tight-knit community. Listeners could easily wish they were surrounded by such neighbors and friends.
