Declan O'Bryan left Ireland to seek his fortune in the New World, but the journey was long for a man without a penny to his name. It took years of back-breaking work as a sailor and a journeyman for him to finally reach Montana, and to have enough money to his name to earn the title of proud homesteader. There's only one thing missing from his life now, and unlike the boys in town, he's not convinced a man should find a wife in a catalog, the same way he buys a plow.
But for Margaret McGreggor, answering an advertisement for a wife is the only way she can get out of her sister's cramped apartment and start a new life for herself. She came to America for adventure and opportunity, and marrying a stranger just might provide her with both.

A Sweet Western Romance..
This is a quick clean read that takes place when there is a shortage of women, so, the men in the small Montana town, who desired a wife and family resorted to Mail Order Brides.
The main characters, Declan O'Bryan and Margaret McGreggor, start writing each other and soon Margaret agrees to marry him.
They have a couple of things in common including both being from Ireland and both being stubborn.
Declan under-reacts to things while Margaret over-reacts which leads to an interesting couple.
Overall this was an interesting read but there were times when Declan took the advice of his friend, Ned,
and it resulted in a couple of misunderstandings between him and Margaret.
Declan relied too much on his friend's thoughts / opinions but it was good that he was able to admit to his faults.
I also felt that, the story could have been a little longer.
Charles D. Baker did well with the narration.

An Audible Book that is hard to pause
I haven't read the print version but the audio edition was entertaining.
Margaret or "Mags". Her plight in life was so true in the period in which the book took place. She dealt with the problems of life head on and didn't let them overtake her.
The train ride out west when her nerves got the best of her and her friends "remedy".
I did a lot of smiling while I listened to the book
I enjoyed reading the book. I wish it had been longer and the story about Margaret and her new husband continue at least through their first year of marriage and the difficulties they would encounter in the west.
