Love This Storyline
Heartwarming, Short and Sweet
I read another book that was about a mail order bride and I always enjoy these types of stories that tell about life in the old days.
Meghan has such an amazing repertoire of voices !! She always is full of surprises with her performance. I love listening to her !
This book is not the type to have an extreme reaction in my opinion. It's a easy short listen and is compelling in many ways though. I really relate to the main character who comes across as a real person that has ups and downs in her life.
I received this audio book in exchange for a review. I have listened to several of Meghan's books and I have a few more in my library. I will be asking for more of her work !
