The novel revisits some familiar characters from previous Hope's Crossing stories but can be read alone with no knowledge of the previous stories in the series. The hero, a widower with young daughters, gains a mail order bride with little domestic knowledge but who brings danger and secrets. Though often Woolf's books seem to follow a pattern, this one deviates somewhat from that. As I read, I was afraid of the worse for the heroine. Woolf does an excellent job creating suspense for the reader with a satisfying ending. My biggest complaint was the narrator's tendency to use a southern accent for Yankee women. It is still a great novel to listen to so one can escape from life for a while.
This was a very good book. I enjoyed the journey with Bella and in getting to know Alex. I did fine his stubbornness irritating, but he finally realized how he felt and made her feel well loved. On the whole it really is a good book and I recommend it whole heartedly. I read this book several years ago, but listening to it today, was like hearing a new book. I look forward to listening to many more books.
