Publisher's Summary

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. Each brave young woman is ready to face whatever an unknown groom and life in Montana can throw her way.
In Holland's book, bride-to-be Trudy Bauer rides the train to Sweetwater Springs, in a Montana Sky Novel. In Fyffe's novel, house servant Evie Davenport travels by stagecoach to Y Knot, Montana in a McCutcheon Family Novel. Through their correspondence, the friends keep each other abreast of their hardships, trials, and tribulations - some of heartbreak, some of love.

Such a sweet story!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, because I really liked the story! It was well written and I loved the characters!

Who was your favorite character and why?

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!

Which scene was your favorite?

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!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

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!

Any additional comments?

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

Where does Mail-Order Brides of the West rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

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.

Who was your favorite character and why?

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.

Which character – as performed by Lara Asmundson – was your favorite?

Trudy. Her voice seemed just right for this character's personality.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?


Any additional comments?

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.
