Publisher's Summary

A historical romance from award-winning and best-selling author Jody Hedlund.

Recently widowed Annalisa Werner has the feeling her husband was murdered but can't prove it. Alone with her young daughter in 1881 Michigan, she has six months left to finish raising the money needed to pay back the land contract her husband purchased, and the land is difficult to toil by herself. She needs a husband. With unmarried men scarce, her father sends a letter to his brother in the Old Country, asking him to find Annalisa a groom. For nobleman Carl von Reichart, the blade of the guillotine is his fate. He's been accused and convicted of a serious crime he didn't commit, and his only escape is to flee to a small German community in Michigan where he'll be safe. He secures a job on Annalisa's farm but bumbles through learning about farming and manual labor. Annalisa senses that Carl is harboring a secret about his past, yet she finds herself drawn to him anyway. He's gentle, kind, and romantic - unlike any of the men she's ever known. He begins to restore her faith in the ability to love - but her true groom is still on his way. And time is running out on them all.

    "2 of my favorite characters"

    I really fell in love with the characters in this story. Such a beautiful journey to take with them as they learn, grow and find true love. Excellently written and, as always, Mary Sarah Agliotta is just brilliant! The story is a great combination of mystery, suspense, adventure, humor and romance. Highly recommended.

    "Beautiful Story"

    This is the first book I have ever read, or listened to by this author. It was a beautiful story of a sweet love between the heroine, Annalisa and the hero, Carl. It was a love that grew over time and it felt real. He was the most caring man with a fun sense of humor that won Annalisa's heart. She was a woman who was so sweet and precious and loved her family. I highly recommend this book.

    Story
    "Overly Dramatic Narrator"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator!! Also, it would have been nice to have some understanding of how Carl came to have such an enlightened view of the value of women.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The prolonged overly-dramatic narration almost ruined this book. I enjoyed the story and wanted to find out how it ended but the narration made it difficult to listen for extended periods of time. I would have to take "breaks" from listening because the dramatic pauses and emphatic reading were so annoying. This is one of the rare times I wished I had purchased the paper version of the book.


    Do you think A Noble Groom needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I don't think it "needs" a follow-up book but it might be interesting to read another book, perhaps from the perspective of an adult Gretchen (or one of their other children).

    Story
    "Great read of 1880's historical romance"

    This historical romance is Book 2 in the Michigan Brides series, but it can be read as a stand-alone. Jody Hedlund, the author, has a unique flow of writing and style. The era of this novel is in the 1880's. I highly recommend this author and the narrator as well as this audiobook.
