A Still Small Voice – Book Review

The Book Review Directory


366 pages, A Still Small Voice by John Reed was published by Delacorte Press in 2000. It was his debut novel.  

Alma is an orphan sent to live with her aunt. The year is 1859, which I absolutely loved. How simple life seemed to be then! There are plenty of lush country scenes in A Still Small Voice. It is a book about horses and home cures, as much as it is a romance.

We grow up with Alma, as she makes friends, meets the Cleveland’s and begins school.
