Publisher's Summary

Samuel Morrison, a farmer from Iowa, is in need of a wife and a mother for Lizzie, his three-year old daughter. He reads an article from Massachusetts advertising mail order brides. He writes to the agency stating he's looking for a partner who will work by his side and, hopefully, come to care for him and be a loving mother to Lizzie.

Hannah Brown responds to his letter. Though she doesn't say too much about herself, Samuel decides to take a chance and asks her to come to Iowa.

This woman is everything he wants in a wife and more - or so he thinks. Hannah has a secret that, if revealed, could devastate their future.

If Hannah tells Samuel, will he send her away? She could lose all she's come to cherish. Is Hannah willing to take that chance?

    Story
    "Mail Order Bride....with a Twist."

    This is a sweet and enjoyable Mail Order Bride Story. Samuel is a lonely widower who is in need of a wife to help care for his little daughter. He answers an advertisement for a Mail Order Bride and Hannah responds to his letter. This sweet clean story has some twists and kept my interest throughout. I recommend this book to all who enjoy a good heartfelt story with good narration.

    I would like to thank the author, narrator, or publisher for providing me this audiobook at no cost in exchange for my unbiased review courtesy of Audiobookboom.

    Story
    "Good Story, But..."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really. Although it had a good storyline I was disappointed. I think with another narrator and less detail shown to the mundane I would have enjoyed it. It had unnecessary detail on what they had to eat and what they were wearing for such a short story (3 1/2 hours), in my opinion. Although the narrator was an articulate speaker, she lacked something. I felt her reading was unemotional and I did not feel connected to the characters.


    What other book might you compare Hannah: Bride of Iowa to and why?

    To other "Mail Order Bride" books. The subject matter is mail order brides, just different circumstances leading to becoming a mail order bride, different characters and storylines. I usually like "Mail Order Bride" books.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Emma Lysy?

    I don't think so.


    Was Hannah: Bride of Iowa worth the listening time?

    I hate to say it, but it was not to me.


    Any additional comments?

    I believe it would have been an enjoyable story with a more passionate narrator. Some narrators have the ability to draw me into the story and make me feel a personal connection to the characters, this one did not. I was happy when it ended.

    "Great story"

    Loved this take on the mail order brides. I liked how it worked out for everyone. It was a good story and told in such terms that you knew what was happening without it being shoved down your throat.One lady changes identity with another. they both choose different paths and face adversity. Yet in the end they both find love. This is a good feel good story that will keep you listening until the end. Well worth the credit and the narrator did justice to all of the characters.

    I recieved this for an honest review via audiobook boom.

    "Clean language, clean story, kept my interest"

    Not all of the authors in the mail order brides series will give you clean language, but this one does, refreshingly so. Also not all of the narrator's are all the professional quality that this one is. Also, refreshingly so.

    "Heart Warming"

    A beautiful story about getting the truth out and showing that love conquers all.
    Nicely written and the story just seemed to flow out.
    I would recommend this book/audiobook to those who enjoy tales of Mail Order Brides.
    The narration in the audiobook was not overly dramatized and was easy to listen to.

    "Hannah: Bride of Iowa: American Mail Order Bride"

    “This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.”

    This was a sweet quick romance. The female protagonist has a secret, will it ruin her future plans to marry the man she has come to love? I hope to find more works by this author.


    The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed.
