I love this series of products. While they are set in times of conflict and distress, there is always a godly lesson to be learned and hope/joy always wins in the end. Isn't it true in real life that our greatest blessings and triumphs come out of conflict and many times disaster? My children, ages 15, 12, & 9 enjoyed this story immensely. Set in French Revolutionary times, the conflicts resolved involved rich vs poor and family vs family. Good always triumphs over evil and the cost is always worth it. The Unexpected Return is the favorite of my 15 year old daughter's and one we've listened to many times. I absolutely recommend this product for any age!
While I enjoy the quality and style in which they bring these stories to CD, however, the actual stories themselves are TOO sad for my taste. They sit on my shelf for the most part because if you are having a bad day these may tend to make your sad mood worse ( I know from personal experience ).
These would not be good for anyone who is sick, sad or in the hospital -- far too melancholy!
