Miracles on Maple Hill

by Virginia Sorensen

This Title No Longer Available - Please Do Not Order

Winner of the 1957 Newbery Award, this novel offers a loving portrait of a family trying to put itself back together when the father returns from a war in a distant land. Written over 45 years ago, Maple Hill is eerily apt for today's young listeners—who will also appreciate the beautifully crafted portrait of a rural world that still exists, but is rapidly vanishing. An all time great.

Reviews:
"...springs to life thanks to the spirited participation of the full cast production: what more could one wish for in an audio production? Cynthia Bishop and the Full Cast family do an exquisite job..."
    — Library Bookwatch May 2005    Read entire review…
 
"A full cast perfectly conveys the sweetness of this classic... 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."

"...skillfully dramatized by a cast of experienced narrators... Listeners are drawn into the tale of a year in the life of this family as the father slowly regains his strength and confidence... each character is brought to life and given a unique personality and voice. Their expert narration brings this inspiring American classic to life."
    — School Library Journal Sep 2005
 
"Although intended for children, this is a book that is perfect for family listening. This is a story about caring people, dealing with family and personal issues that are as relevant to today's readers as they were a generation ago."
    — Large Print Reviews
 
"This production shines."
