Publisher's Summary

Libby Chance Sims was orphaned, along with her siblings, at an early age, traveled west on the Oregon Trail, and thought she had her fairytale ending when she met and married a good man at trail's end. But 10 years later, when her husband is killed in a logging accident, her life takes a horrific turn at the hands of unscrupulous "family friend", Hector. Fearing for herself and the lives of her two boys, she flees Oregon for Haskell, Wyoming and her family. But has she run far enough to escape her past?
Mason Montrose has never forgotten Libby, the beautiful, young bride he fell in love with before realizing she was married 10 years ago in Oregon. When she steps down from the train in Haskell, dressed in widow's black with fear in her eyes, all of the affection and longing for her that he thought he put behind him returns. He will stop at nothing to protect Libby from the demons chasing her, both real and emotional, even marrying her to keep her safe.
Some demons are more sinister than others, though. When Hector arrives in Haskell, it takes more than the power of Mason's love and devotion to Libby to defeat him, it takes an entire community.

Good Quick listen

I enjoyed this book. the narrator was very good and kept the story moving forward. She did the voices with care. Loved the boy's voices. Hector was evil personified. I am also glad that she included in the story that not all mail order brides marry the men they are intended for. Libby is accosted when her husband dies and flees the lumber camp riddled with guilt. Hector follows her and tries to ruin her reputation. He is a bully but Mason saves the day. This is less than five hours so when you have some free minutes to listen do so. It is worth the time. I got this book via audiobook boom. You will enjoy the story and you will love the narrator.

His Heartbroken Bride

Libby must start over after a tragic accident claims her husband. But she is having to accelerate her time frame on that after a man that worked with her husband won't leave her alone. And Hector is bad to the core. Returning to her adopted family and meeting up with the one that got away she hopes her and her boys have a new chance at happiness.

The town characters are just great and really they make the story. The ladies from the brothel are some of my favorites!

Sweet, hopeful with a heavy dose of honest.

Merry Farmer has written a surprising honest book with a heavy dose of hope. With incredible sensitivity, she covers the issue of consent and rape as well as the unfortunate guilt and prejudice the victim suffers from after the fact.

What is hopeful is the community, and mainly Mason and his friends, when Libby's truth is uncovered. Unlike what would most likely have been the norm of the times, key members of the community band together to support and protect Libby.

It is a heart-warming, simple book with a wonderful HEA. Caroline McLaughlin has a naturally gently way of narrating the book which fits well with the story. Overall, despite (or maybe because of) the hard issues in the plot, this is an enjoyable story.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
