I remember reading the original books that this audio drama is based off of a long time ago, but I didn t remember much of the story line It was beautiful the way Lamplighter Theatre brought it to life. My review is like 4.5 I love all the lamplighter theatre, And once again they did a great job. I ve listened to this numerous times with my family It really is a touching story. Listened to this audio a couple of years ago We all loved it One worth listening to over and over Deals with alcoholism, abuse, and neglect..krb 7 25 16 Excellent story of redemption. Jessica was a bit on the angelic side, but I still loved this story Her simple faith, and choice to always love were so sweet I wish it could have been longer.
