When Karl Norwood' s mail-order bride meets an untimely demise on the way to the Montana Territory, Hetty Wentworth steps in to take her place. Hetty has no idea how she' s going to pretend to be all the things she isn' t - including the mother of two kids. She only knows her deception is necessary if she' s going to save two orphans from the awful fate she suffered as a child. Karl smells a rat when a much younger woman than he was expecting arrives with two children who look nothing like her. But his mail-order bride is so beautiful, he doesn' t object - until he realizes that his charming new wife has been lying...about everything. Can a woman forced to keep secrets and a man hindered by distrust ever hope to find happily ever after in each other's arms?

Touching, endearing, nerve-wracking
I loved how Hetty & Carl's relationship deepened & evolved. I love that Carl was plain - at first - to Hetty, but she soon realized he was so much more.
I have never listened to Julia Gibson's performances. She is my new favorite narrator!
Hetty & Carl's similar Christmas gifts for one another. Also Andy's response to Grace's secret.
