Like the Willow Tree

Like the Willow Tree: The Diary of Lydia Amelia Pierce, Portland, Maine, 1918

by Lois Lowry Narrator Sara Barnett

This was different then the books that I normally read. I’m not usually a fan of historical fiction, but I gave it a chance because this is an author that I have loved since I was a kid. I’m not usually a fan of the journal format, but I think that this book handles it well. In this style it becomes a need to tell rather than show and that can easily become cumbersome. But Lowry does it brilliantly. I don’t think that I will be getting any of the other books in the series (I might) but I am glad that I read this one.

I think that Sara Barnett did a great job reading this. The only part of the reading that I disliked was when she was singing. There is nothing pleasing about her singing voice. It just grates on me.
