Publisher's Summary

Ever wondered what it might be like to be a mail order bride? Or the groom, already married to a woman he's never laid eyes on?
On the Canadian prairies in 1886, having a mail order romance wasn't unusual. Noah Ferguson desperately needed help on his farm. Annie Tompkins knew she couldn't go on working in Lazenby's cotton mill. So she'd been a little less than honest in her letters, was that really so terrible?
It was unforgivable, Noah fumed. He'd wanted an older widow, and Annie was a young virgin. But even that wasn't the full extent of her lies.
Problem is, Noah hasn't exactly been straight with Annie, either, and his secret has the power to break Annie's heart.
Can even a special Christmas gift make their marriage work?

A Beautiful Love Story

I got this book from audiobook boom. This was a quick fully developed love story. with all of the full meaning of the words. There was trepidation, angst, death, new life, lost and a strong snow storm as well as the love of a set of sisters for each other that extended to an old man who had lost his ability to speak but learned what it was to continue to love because of the sign language that the deft sister taught him. I loved the ending. The narration was very well done and brought the story alive.

A Story of the Canadian Prairies and Farming

“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”

Noah is a widower who lost his wife, 18 month old son and father had a stroke. He gets a mail order bride to be a helpmate, not to love. He is a good but stubborn man.
Annie is only 20 alone caring for her 14 year old sister who answers
Noah's ad. They are married by proxy but upon meeting discover each has kept secrets. Annie comes to care. for Nash and he fights his growing feelings for Annie feeling disloyal to his first wife.
Liking both Noah and Annie you anxiously wait to see what happens between them. A sweet story taking place when life is hard.
The narrator had such a sweet voice for Annie and a good voice for Noah
I enjoyed the story and the narration and would happily listen to more!
