Publisher's Summary

Victoria Lowell grew up in the privileged world of the Boston Brahmins. She had everything she could want...except love. After being jilted, the society miss travels a thousand miles to marry a man she's never met whose romantic letters won her heart. To her surprise, and dismay, the groom who meets her at the train station exhibits little interest in romance.
David O'Brien, a divorced shopkeeper of Irish descent, wants nothing to do with matters of the heart. But his young daughter needs a mother and his meddling sister believes she's done him a favor by corresponding with a mail-order bride. Impressed by Victoria, he holds off on revealing the true author of the letters she received and sets a date for their marriage. Love isn't part of the bargain, as far as he's concerned. But love is what Victoria has come this far to find.
When the truth finally comes out, it will take more than a miracle to deliver a happily-ever-after.

Where does Victoria: Bride of Kansas rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Victoria and David's story is a heartwarming mail order bride historical romance that I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend to other fans of this genre. E.E. Burke brings the past alive with a delightful Christmas story that will touch your heart and will bring together three lonely people who are longing for what we all want most. To love and be loved.

What did you like best about this story?

I was delighted by the tender relationship between Victoria and Fanny, a six year old child who hasn't spoken one word since her mother ran away and abandoned her and her father two years ago. Victoria is very patient with Fanny and child and father are healed by her gentle spirit.

What about Liisa Ivary’s performance did you like?

I thought Liisa did an amazing job portraying all of the characters in the story while she interpreted their emotional vulnerabilities with the different inflections of her voice. It was easy to follow the story and I found myself focusing on every descriptive word she spoke. As a reader I tend to miss some of the small details in my haste to follow the story and listening to the spoken word allowed me to enjoy every single syllable.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! I listened during a four hour car ride and it was entertaining and relaxing at the same time. I can't think of a better way to travel.

Any additional comments?

I'm so happy that I discovered how enjoyable audio books can be and I think everyone should try them.
