Publisher's Summary

It's 1889 (Helena, MT): Calista Blythe enters the first Miss Snowflake Pageant celebrating Montana statehood to expose the plight of street urchins. But hiding an indentured orphan could unravel Calista's reputation and her budding romance with pageant organizer Albert Shanahan, if her secret is revealed. Will love or law prevail?
This book is the first in the Montana Beginnings series. The sequel is Eleven Pipers Piping. Each book can be heard as a single story, but if you love historicals and series set in the same locale, then Helena, MT, is your place to live in a story world among the Montana Beginnings series by Angela Breidenbach.

Interesting slice of history

Would you consider the audio edition of The Debutante Queen to be better than the print version?

The audio version is narrated by relatives of the author. For the most part the two did an outstanding job narrating, though there were one or two moments that seemed "off" to me.

What did you like best about this story?

The gentle love story set in the old west.

Fresh topic and setting, great male narration

Would you listen to another book narrated by Forrest Leder and Tristan Leder ?

I enjoyed listening to Forrest's voice. Nicely done!

Any additional comments?

The idea of a child on the streets is disturbing, so this heroine and her passion for making a difference in such a child's life struck a chord with me. This is an uplifting, wholesome story with an early Montana setting that was new and fresh for me. The author has a sweet voice, writes well, and provides a solid inspirational message.
