This story is told from the viewpoint of poet Robert Frost's 15-year-old daughter. In an extended flashback, young Lesley recounts her family's early years in rural Derry, New Hampshire, where her father found his greatest poetic inspiration. Narrator Ammi-Joan Paquette is suitably youthful sounding as Lesley reminisces about her idyllic childhood, suggested with birdsong and other rural sounds, and her memories of absorbing her father's love of language, books, astronomy, and nature. The text weaves snippets of Frost's poems into the story; in such spots, Paquette's voice is produced with a slightly distracting sound that signals the shift from narration to quotation. The audiobook includes an interesting author's note by biographer Bober, who packs this small book with engaging Frost facts gleaned from Lesley's diary.
