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 Fyffe's Novel, house servant Evie Davenport travels by stagecoach to Y Knot, Montana in a McCutcheon Family Novel. In Holland's book, bride-to-be Trudy Bauer rides the train to Sweetwater Springs, in a Montana Sky Novel. Through their correspondence, the friends keep each other abreast of their hardships, trials and tribulations - some of heartbreak, some of love.

I don't think that it was better than the print version, but listening to the book made me "see" things in a different way than reading it.
When Evie decided to make a new life for herself and become a Mail-Order Bride, instead of being the maid.
I believe that Evie was my favorite.
Mrs. Seymour, she cared for Evie's mother and continued to care for Evie after her mother died. Although Evie was afraid to tell Mrs. Seymour about the letters and her plans to travel west as a Mail-Order Bride, Mrs. Seymour still cared enough about Evie to travel to Montana to be sure that she was safe and happy.
I haven't seen any other version but I don't feel I missed anything. Listening is nice and Lara Asmundson makes it nice to hear the story
When he came racing after Evie on his horse when she was just going to the mailbox.
I like Lara's narration because she actually makes it sould like Evie is reading me her story.
Since I listened to 'Trudy' first I was fascinated that both authors seem to find it important for the med to build their wives a chicken coop. Of course in this case, he just doesn't want to eat anymore potatoes. Lol
I would reacommend this series to anyone fascinated with the idea of women with no apparent prospects in their own towns, setting themselves up to marry a stranger in the 'wild' west. It has endless possibilities and these authors have captured the heart of the idea.
Absolutely! Definately a wonderful story that uplifts and entertains.
Suspense over the romance coming together after misunderstanding. I could not stop listening to the story!
Loved Evie. I felt that Ms. Asmundson did an excellent job making all the characters come to life. Her interpretation of the characters was similiar to my own as I had already read the book myself.
Chance of a Lifetime.
Fyffe's books are uplifting and fun. They are just what I am looking for in a book. Her stories bring out the underlying goodness in people and inspire a person to be kinder to others.
Delightful, heartwarming and intriguing!
Oh, I don't know, I loved Evie's innocence, her determination for a better life and her willingness to leave the past in the past. But then, Chance,is a strong hero, who wants to have a life of his own without using his family's name and power.
Her voice is smooth, relaxing and powerful, which in turn makes the story interesting and magical.
I laughed and cried. There was a wide variety of emotions throughout this story.
I would highly recommend this story for anyone who enjoys Western Historical Romance, Montana history,finding HEA and a great story.
I am a fun loving mom that enjoys a great Book!! I'm happy to have Audible with a busy life it makes it so easy to still get lost in a book!
This Series IS AMAZING!! I love this World Caroline Fyffe has made for us & draws is into!! I love how you can read the Series in Order OR you can Read them in whatever order you want and they still make sense!! I can't get enough of her books!! It was a Unique change having Lara as the Narrator BUT UNIQUE IN A GOOD WAY!! Evi's story is a good 1!! This book is worth your credit!
I really enjoy the series of the Mail Order Brides of the West. I have purchased all of them to date and am waiting on the next in the series. I also have the companion books written by Debra Holland and the McCutcheon Family Series.
Yes because Caroline Fyffe writes wonderful stories and this is a mail order bride story with love almost at first site, but then conflict of individual feelings what make you wonder what will happen between Evie and Chase. I love both characters and this story.
Montana Dawn the precedes this book and if the first in the McCutcheon series.
Yes, two of Debra Holland's stories, Beneath Montana Sky and Montana Mail Order Brides of the West, Trudy, I think these are all comparable of Lara's abilities.
Not extreme but I couldn't help but be happy for the couple but also kept saying to myself, just tell him or just tell her, talk to each other as their conflict of what will he think if I tell him this or does she love so and so. I didn't cry, probably laughed a bit, did shake my head. LOL
I love all of Caroline's books. She is a wonderful Christian writer and does her historical romances brilliantly.
This book is definitely worth listening to. This is the second book in this series that I've listened to and I'm really enjoying them. Makes walking on the treadmill so much more enjoyable.
