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.

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!
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.
