From AudioFile:

When Nan, the strange girl from the purple mountains, answers an advertisement for a "general housework girl," worlds of fantasy, caring, and contentment are opened for a refugee family. Ethel Cook's novel of children Kay and Gentian, who learn to escape from the harsh realities of their life with the assistance of the Wind Boy, has intrigued readers for many years. Lorrie Holt shares the magic of the story in a light and lyrical manner. Her gentle voice echoes Nan's concern and interest in bringing happiness to Detra and her children. Holt underscores the mystery by differentiating the voices of the characters. Music provides the calming background for the shifts between the real world and the fantasy world. THE WIND BOY is a soothing and intriguing recording. A.R. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 4-Lorrie Holt delightfully narrates this abridged audio version of Ethel Cook Eliot's 1923 tale (Raven Rock Pr., 1996) about a brother and sister who are able to see into a magical fairy world hovering right over our own. Reading with an ethereal quality perfect for this old-fashioned story, Holt helps create a verbal image of Eliot's inviting mystical world. Brief musical interludes at the beginning of each chapter and at key points throughout the story add to the tale's overall airy tone. The quality of the audio is clear, the reading is well paced, and the story will appeal to a wide range of ages.
