A mother and three children experience an abrupt "change in station" when their father is incarcerated and they seek a new life in the country. Finding themselves isolated and poor, they watch trains as their pastime. Jenny Quayle sounds lovingly detached as the mother. The children's voices are all sweet, but one of the two sisters sounds like a boy. Sound effects like trains chugging add realistic detail. This heartwarming production teaches young listeners about prayer and having faith in what they hope for. A.G.H. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
