Mail Order Bride: The Amish Widow and the Cowboy Father tells the beautiful story about two people brought together by the Lord’s divine plan. Sadie was an Amish beauty who was to be married to an older man whom she did not love. Having been a widow she knew what true love felt like, and this was not it. After coming into town to pick up goods for her family, Sadie is led by God to read a mail-order bride advertisement. She is drawn to an ad from a lonely widower living in Texas named Burk. Her heart hurts for this man and his loneliness, so she is compelled to write to him. They begin a secret courtship through the mail and soon realize that God has greater plans for their future relationship. Pursuing their love for each other will not come easy, but with God, all things are possible.

Good book

I liked the book and the story line a second chance at love but did not like the narrator, but it could be just me getting used to audio books?

Would you listen to Mail Order Bride: The Amish Widow and the Cowboy Father again? Why?

Yes! There were so many 'busy' and funny parts, I want to laugh at them again :-)

Which character – as performed by Joe Smith – was your favorite?

I can't choose just one, but my favorites were James and Bessie. Mr. Smith portrayed such lively pictures of them both, perfectly!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The scene when Burke and Sadie met, and all the 'activity' that ensued was entertaining to say the least! Delightfully funny!
