Publisher's Summary

Plain and timid, debutante Pamela Burke-Smythe is a wallflower at the high-society Boston balls she attends, overlooked by possible suitors. One by one her friends become engaged, and Pamela resigns herself as to life as a spinster.
When rancher John Carter becomes guardian to his orphaned godson, Nick, nothing he does seems to help the grieving, angry boy. At his wit's end, he believes that a wife might help draw Nick out, and lonely himself, John's been thinking along matrimonial lines for a while anyway. But small Sweetwater Springs, Montana, has no suitable candidates. He decides to visit his great-aunt Hester in Boston and bring back a wife who is kind and compassionate, who can be a mother figure to Nick, and who can adapt to the hard life on the ranch.
Hester, who's also Pamela's godmother, plays matchmaker for the two. John responds to Pamela's kind heart and believes he's found the ideal woman. But Pamela never thought to marry a stranger and leave Boston, and her family and friends are against the idea. She musters all her meager courage to defy her loved ones and seize her only chance at marriage.
After a whirlwind courtship, the couple marries and travels west. Pamela discovers a run-down ranch house, a bunch of unruly cowboys, a sullen boy, and a different way of life. Can their new marriage survive the challenge?
Set in 1883, Beneath Montana's Sky is a prequel to New York Times best-selling author Debra Holland's Mail-Order Brides of the West series and Montana Sky series.

Could Have Been A Good Book

The book had an interesting theme: John's confusion on how to go about caring for his orphaned godson. He longs for his dead wife's help, so he decides to take a wife to help him with the angry young man. With no suitable candidates close by John travels east to find a bride.

In my opinion the book was not well written. There was too much unnecessary detail for such a short book.

An actress the narrator was not, and read too fast through much of the book.

I cannot recommend "Beneath Montana Sky".

Beneath Montana's Sky

This prequel is absolutely lovely. John's love for a young and hurting Nick is what motivated his search for his true love....
