Set in the small town of Dawson, Montana, this is a sweet story detailing the lives of several families in 1918, just before the end of the war. The characters are all complex personalities, all very likable and I enjoyed getting to know them. The story gives a very clear picture of the uncertainty of life and the future during that time in our history. It is a testament to the fact that even in the worst of times people move forward and do whatever is necessary to protect their families while still living life to the fullest.
The story revolves, mainly, around the lives of the Samuels, Dwyer, and Keller families and the resulting love stories are laced with humor, sadness, and a little mystery. Each one having it’s own distinct style and idiosyncrasies. Love lost and found again, secret passions revealed, new loves just beginning their journey together, and timeless loves passing on invaluable advice and support to the next generation. You can’t help but become immersed in their stories.
I also enjoyed the narration in this book. Mary Ann Weathers does an excellent job distinguishing characters, making each one recognizable in the scenes, and making the listener feel the emotions of the characters.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves sweet romance and/or historical.
This book was a Sweet Christmas Romance.. Full of Love, Friendships and possible Second Chances.
The author has written an engaging story with well rounded characters.
Sawyer, the male lead, is home from The War due to an injury. Being home amongst family and friends allows him to think about Devon.
He still has feelings for her even though she turned down his marriage proposal.
Will Sawyer and Devon reunite? I'm not providing any spoilers in this review...
Mary Ann Weathers did a good job with the narration.

WWI is happening, and families are separated. People at home trying to carry on. Romances are twisted around and everyone hopes for peace. Lots of drama, suspense and even some good old fashioned humor.
The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed.
"Wonderful end of WW1 Story"
If you enjoyed the Montana Mail Order Bride series, you will probably enjoy this book. Listeners get to visit with some of the same characters from the original series, and the new generation is just as endearing. This historical period is dramatic with the emergence of modern technology and so forth. In fact, this book does such a great job of displaying the challenges of the early 1900 (end of WW1) that the romance is almost secondary to the setting. As always, Linda Bridey has provided a wonderful story about very human people in a wonderful community.
