The well-educated daughter of a lawyer, Trudy Bauer arrives at the St. Louis based Mail-Order Brides of the West agency full of excitement for an adventure of a lifetime. She befriends the agency's maid, Evie Davenport, and the two form a strong and lasting friendship. They vow to stay in contact through letters when Evie takes hold of her destiny and arranges a marriage on the sly.

Such a sweet story!!
Yes, because I really liked the story! It was well written and I loved the characters!
I fell in love with Trudy right away!! She was strong in her convictions to do the next right thing for her family and those around her and brave enough to take a chance in reaching her dream of love and happiness!
When Seth realized he loved her and chased down the train to tell Trudy!! I loved that he made it clear that he was willing to go all the way home with Trudy until he convinced her to come back with him!
I just thoroughly enjoyed this story!! There were times I'd smile or chuckle and even a few times that were suspenseful and I'd find myself practically holding my breath! I just know by the end I was just like...awwwwe!! It left me feeling so good!
This was my first experience listening to an audio book and I was so pleasantly surprised. I never thought I'd like it but the narrator did a great job and I think this was the perfect story for my first try! I plan to listen to more of this series!!

Mail-Order Brides of the West: Trudy
It is at the top of my list of audiobooks. I loved everything about this story and how it was narrated. Being able to listen to the story I felt like I was right there in Montana with the characters in this story.
Seth. He was such a guy. As women we think we have the market on doubts in relationships. Seth was funny with all his insecurities but he really meant to be a good husband, provider and protector for Trudy.
Trudy. Her voice seemed just right for this character's personality.
This was my first book by Debra Holland and I thoroughly enjoyed it and will read others by her. The story held my interest straight through to the end. The thing I really liked was when the H&H decided they loved each other the story didn't drag on and on with that. It happened and went on from there.
