An enjoyable short and sweet listen
This is another short and sweet clean read in the Sun River Brides series. I found it very enjoyable but was a little thrown with Daniel turn of events. I did not understand why he turned the way he did but was glad to see him turn around again.
The author gives you a story of Alice who isn’t happy with her life she truly doesn’t know what is missing. When Ellen who is a long time friend talks her into going as a mail order bride she will go as long as she goes with her. They decide she doesn’t have to marry unless she wants to that this is just what she needs to find meaning in her life. The author gives you a very short story of misgivings, pain, sorrow, starting over, and forgiveness.
Mr. Taylor does a wonderful job of narration from the many different characters to the feel of emotions. You never are in doubt just who is talking or what they are feeling. I found both his female and male voices to be a delight from the strong male to the soft female you could really feel the pain, sorrow, and happiness he gives them. I heard no background noise or any places where the audio is louder than the chapters before. His voice is strong and clear giving you a delightful read. I could not find one thing I didn’t like and enjoy about his performance. He really brought this audio to life for me making me feel for each character. If any breaks where taken I could not tell he gave a very good listen. I found this narrator to be very talented. I can’t wait to listen to the rest of the series with him.
Alice really pulled on my heart string when she was ready to go through with it and Daniel backed out which left her confused. She thought they were doing so well but Daniel is hiding a secret that is about to play a visit which just might change how he sees things. It was an enjoyable listen which I am very much looking forward to listening to the rest of this series.
