Publisher's Summary

Romance and historical inspirational listeners love Kim Vogel Sawyer's gentle stories of hope, and this sweet Kentucky tale is certain to entertain and encourage.

Twenty-one-year-old Rebecca Hardin is determined to help provide for her family, living a hardscrabble life in 1910 in the Southern Kentucky hills. Her brother, Andy, died when he became lost in a cave five years earlier, and Rebecca feels responsible for his death because she'd told him to "go, get lost".

The best wages at Mammoth Cave are earned by the guides, who receive a salary plus tips from the guests. But only men are allowed to be guides, so Rebecca cuts her hair, dons some of Andy's clothes, and introduces herself as Reb to the estate manager. She's put under the tutelage of Tolly Branford, a longtime trusted employee. Both Tolly and fellow guide Devlin Bale discover Rebecca's secret.

Tolly wants to help the Hardins. Devlin and Rebecca, who may be smitten with each other, spend days scouting the depths of the cave and learning its secrets. When the cave threatens to claim another Hardin family member, can Tolly and Devlin use their skills before it's too late?

Excellent as always

Before I even begin listening to this author's books, I know with confidence that it is going to be 1) clean from beginning to end. 2) keep my interest all the way through. And 3), have good clean moral values all the way through. The villains can be true villains without subjecting the listener to foul language, and the heroes and heroines are normal flawed individuals, but will always ultimately look to God for their deliverance and salvation. The narrator is highly professional in portraying all the various voices and nuances of the narration. You forget that you are being read to, and are drawn into the story totally. Although she has a nasal quality to her voice which of course she cannot help, you soon forget about it because of the excellent quality of her narration.

Great story, happy tears!

Any additional comments?

Very good Christian story. Thoroughly enjoyed the mystery as much as the Christian aspect. Wish there was already a series of these group of characters :) Kim is a wonderful writer and the reader/narrator was excellent!

Faith

Kim & Lauraine Snelling are 2 of my favorite Audible Authors. I love their entertaining, pure, faith based books. This one brought back childhood memories of one of our Summer vacations to Mammoth Caves.

Great author ; Great narrator

I actually chose this book because Kim Sawyer is a very good author, and Kate Forbes is top notch narrator. Sawyer writes with great character development and a unique story line.
And it's hard to find a narrator I like as much as I like Forbes. I choose books to read where she is the narrator and I don't know the author. That's how good she is.

I really enjoyed this picture of life and the people of the cavern area. It showed that rich or poor, black or white can be friends. I felt that there should be a sequel to this novel where their is faith in action.
