Samuel Morrison, a farmer from Iowa, is in need of a wife and a mother for Lizzie, his three-year old daughter. He reads an article from Massachusetts advertising mail order brides. He writes to the agency stating he's looking for a partner who will work by his side and, hopefully, come to care for him and be a loving mother to Lizzie.
Hannah Brown responds to his letter. Though she doesn't say too much about herself, Samuel decides to take a chance and asks her to come to Iowa.
This woman is everything he wants in a wife and more - or so he thinks. Hannah has a secret that, if revealed, could devastate their future.
If Hannah tells Samuel, will he send her away? She could lose all she's come to cherish. Is Hannah willing to take that chance?

Mail Order Bride....with a Twist.
Good Story, But...
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.
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.
I don't think so.
I hate to say it, but it was not to me.
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.
