Recently widowed Annalisa Werner has the feeling her husband was murdered but can't prove it. Alone with her young daughter in 1881 Michigan, she has six months left to finish raising the money needed to pay back the land contract her husband purchased, and the land is difficult to toil by herself. She needs a husband. With unmarried men scarce, her father sends a letter to his brother in the Old Country, asking him to find Annalisa a groom. For nobleman Carl von Reichart, the blade of the guillotine is his fate. He's been accused and convicted of a serious crime he didn't commit, and his only escape is to flee to a small German community in Michigan where he'll be safe. He secures a job on Annalisa's farm but bumbles through learning about farming and manual labor. Annalisa senses that Carl is harboring a secret about his past, yet she finds herself drawn to him anyway. He's gentle, kind, and romantic - unlike any of the men she's ever known. He begins to restore her faith in the ability to love - but her true groom is still on his way. And time is running out on them all.

Great read of 1880's historical romance
This historical romance is Book 2 in the Michigan Brides series, but it can be read as a stand-alone. Jody Hedlund, the author, has a unique flow of writing and style. The era of this novel is in the 1880's. I highly recommend this author and the narrator as well as this audiobook.

2 of my favorite characters
I really fell in love with the characters in this story. Such a beautiful journey to take with them as they learn, grow and find true love. Excellently written and, as always, Mary Sarah Agliotta is just brilliant! The story is a great combination of mystery, suspense, adventure, humor and romance. Highly recommended.
