Georgina Chappel has everything a girl could wish for, except her freedom. As a daughter of a wealthy and influential man, she is forced to be something she is not, every single day. She knows that she has failed her parents, her Coming Out was a distinct flop, and despite her wealth and good name, she has yet to find a suitable husband. But she does not want any of the dull and insipid men of her circle. She wants adventure and a man who will love her just the way she is.
Martin Shaw has worked hard to establish the town's only bank. He loves his work, but feels there is something missing. Will he finally find a way to move forward from his past, or will it haunt him forever?

Very entertaining and enjoyable

I liked this story and the outcome is great, not all things are as we see them sometimes what we think might not be the truth as we find out on this short sweet read. Georgina is a different kind of girl, she has money and all that comes with it but she can’t find the one thing she really wants, a man she can love but also communicate with, one that will not try to change her. That is very hard to find in this time period. She decided to give the mail order bride a chance. She meets her husband to be and is very taken with him as he is with her BUT he is hiding a secret that once it comes out he is sure she will leave him.

Mr. Bennett’s narration is outstanding as he brings to life the story with strong emotions, confusion, power, control, anger, loss, heartache. You can hear all these in his voice as he builds each character giving us their strengths and weakness. His female and male voices are wonderful you always know who is talking and just what they are feeling. There are no background noises, no volume changes just a very clean clear audio that really pulls you in. If any breaks were taken you cannot tell. What really makes this an outstanding audio is how the narrator really brings it to life, you have no trouble getting lost in his pleasant voice which makes it very easy to picture the scenes in your mind. He really gives character to the characters as he puts his self in their place. Mr. Bennett gives the full impact through his voice as your heart goes out to a few characters and what they are going through. Each character goes through a trying time, the narrator has no trouble showing you exactly what they are feeling. It is a great narration that really pulls you in leaving you laughing and sad at other times.

A well thought out plot that really pulls you in. I love the mystery I was really going and wasn’t even close to what really happens. Okay my mind went a little wild but I did have a chuckle. The characters are very likable and are very easy to relate. I love the town, the towns people. I loved how everyone pulled together and how some people find out that their worse fear isn’t right at all. With all short stories you cannot tell much or you will give it away. You will be surprised at the outcome and I was. Totally enjoyable listen.

Georgina finds love

Mail order bride stories are one of my favorites, this one is as good as any of Karla Graceys others

I enjoy listening to J. Scott Bennett as he narrated this book. His voice is strong yet gentle.

I was given a copy of this audible free of charge and am thrilled to give my honest unbiased review
