An interesting look at the social trends of the era

While Gene Stratton Porter is one of my all-time favorite authors, this is not my favorite book. That is primarily due to racism against Japanese Americans, which was very prevalent in California at the time. I did enjoy the characters and the plot, however, as well as the insights I gained about that period of time (World War I era) in US history.

Prejudices of the time

Be aware of the language and prejudices of the time period! Many statements are offensive today.

The Reader's Voice

I read this book several times over the years. It's dated, and expressed views unacceptable today, I always enjoyed the story, in spite of strongly disagreeing with the anti Japanese-American views. I was looking forward to listening but didn't make it past the first paragraph before giving up. The reader's voice was about as enthralling as fingernails on a chalkboard.
