Mariella Montague has grown up surrounded by wealth and privilege, but she has a kind heart and a generous spirit. When she is not volunteering her services and her allowance to charitable events though, she often feels out of step with her world. When her world crumbles around her, she takes the bold step of moving to Montana, where she unexpectedly finds a true home and the answers that were always out of reach.
Will Shepton is new to Silver River, but as a hardworking blacksmith, his talents are in great demand. Though his good friend Harry lives nearby, he begins to crave companionship and the love of his own family.

Short sweet clean interesting read

Any additional comments?

When everyone wants a small short woman Mariella is left out. She is having trouble finding a man she wants that wants her. She is taller than most men and men being men do not like a women looking down on them. Their poor ego can’t take it. Her parents have decided they will pick a man for her he is old and not what she wants. She decided after reading a mail order bride ad there is one man that does interest her. They write back and forward until the day her parents tell her she will marry someone they picked. She decides to make a run for it leaving all her wealth behind it isn’t important she doesn’t need much. As Mariella and Will get to know each other they decide they will meet. With her parents decision the meet date is moved up. The question is will they marry and if so how will her family deal with the issue.

Mr. Taylor does a wonderful job of narration from the many different characters to the feel of emotions. You never are in doubt just who is talking or what they are feeling. I found both his female and male voices to be a delight from the strong male to the soft female you could really feel the pain, sorrow, and happiness he gives them. I heard no background noise or any places where the volume changes. There are no repeating of words just a wonderful delightful listen. If any breaks where taken I could not tell. His voice is strong and clear giving you a delightful listen. His performance is outstanding from the emotion to his voices he really make the story come alive. He is a very talented narrator that pulls the listener in giving a very vivid listen that you can picture the scenes in your mind.

I enjoyed this plot it was very entertaining. The characters are wonderful it was fun watching them fall in love and just how all that played out. If you are looking for a short sweet clean romance than this mail order bride might just be for you.

Mail Order Bride Mariella

Karla Gracey writes wonderful mail order bride books. This one is as good as all her other ones. I enjoyed listening to this audible. Anyone who enjoys a good mail order bride book will love this one.

As always Alan Taylor's narration is excellent. He has become one of my favorite narrators.

I received this book from the author, publisher or narrator free. I'm thrilled to give my review for this wonderful audible
