This is a sweet and enjoyable Mail Order Bride Story. Samuel is a lonely widower who is in need of a wife to help care for his little daughter. He answers an advertisement for a Mail Order Bride and Hannah responds to his letter. This sweet clean story has some twists and kept my interest throughout. I recommend this book to all who enjoy a good heartfelt story with good narration.
I would like to thank the author, narrator, or publisher for providing me this audiobook at no cost in exchange for my unbiased review courtesy of Audiobookboom.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Not really. Although it had a good storyline I was disappointed. I think with another narrator and less detail shown to the mundane I would have enjoyed it. It had unnecessary detail on what they had to eat and what they were wearing for such a short story (3 1/2 hours), in my opinion. Although the narrator was an articulate speaker, she lacked something. I felt her reading was unemotional and I did not feel connected to the characters.
What other book might you compare Hannah: Bride of Iowa to and why?
To other "Mail Order Bride" books. The subject matter is mail order brides, just different circumstances leading to becoming a mail order bride, different characters and storylines. I usually like "Mail Order Bride" books.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Emma Lysy?
I don't think so.
Was Hannah: Bride of Iowa worth the listening time?
I hate to say it, but it was not to me.
Any additional comments?
I believe it would have been an enjoyable story with a more passionate narrator. Some narrators have the ability to draw me into the story and make me feel a personal connection to the characters, this one did not. I was happy when it ended.
