But knowing no English, Augusta misunderstands a ticket agent's directions in St. Paul, Minnesota, and in the harried confusion she boards the wrong train. When she arrives at the end of the line, she is met by a handsome young rancher, Kane Moyer, waiting for his Norwegian mail-order bride....

I don't mean to be mean, but seriously, this narrator was intolerable. I could not even get through the 2nd chapter. Her monotone voice did not allow me to even get into the story. I'm spoiled to listening to Pam Ward and others like her that are obviously "professional narrators." Again, I don't mean to hurt feelings.
I couldn't get through this!The narrator was not my favorite. I found myself correcting her inflections in my head. Also, she was kind of monotone. I'm not sure if there are other books in this series? Because I came into it utterly confused. The story had some potential, and I normally love Loraine Snelling's books, but this one didn't seem to move along. I felt like the main characters were not the main characters because everyone else was featured so strongly.
Although this was a bit of a stretch to be believable, the author succeeded in getting me hooked and not wanting to put the book down, or turn it off, since this is an audible book.
The story was only 1/3rd about August and Cain. The rest didn't hold my interest. Wouldn't recommend it.
I am a miracle worker. Doing what I can to choose love over fear.
Narration is great! The plot could have been amazing. However,rosie, happy and totally predictable. Nope!
