Really Short & Ends Unfinished

So this made me think of the short stories/pamphlet books or stories made for magazines published back in the 1800's and early 1900's for Western or romance etc. It's was a very quick paced mail order bride story that weird enough ended without a conclusion to a pretty major event but at the same time didn't lead to a book two that I could find. It could've been a great story if lengthened and the ending improved by either leading to the next book or finishing the story. Overall a clean story, there is a semi detailed surgery scene (warning to the squeamish) but otherwise nothing to note in content.

The narrator was ok, didn't have the best differentiations but we still easy to listen to.

Weird Ending and Story Focus

This was billed as a romance, but it was more about an appendectomy in great detail than about anything else. It also ended in such a weird place that it felt like an incomplete fragment. The writing wasn't bad, though.

Is there a doctor in the house

Narration was good. This is a sweet short story. Abby and her best friend and cousin, Charlotte, are on a train heading to North Dakota, so Charlotte can get married. She is a mail order bride and Abby is making sure she gets there safely. On the way, a cowboy steps into their car. He entertains them with stories of the West. When Charlotte awakes and has a panic attack. The cowboy, Samuel is also a doctor, calms her down. When the train gets to its destination, they all get out. Charlotte meets her intended, Will for the first time. Little did they know, they were all going to the same place, a wedding. Cute story.

Faith put to the test

A trip out west ends with an unexpected event. In the old west,doctors are limited and there are few hospitals. Faith is put to the test when a event occurs and medical conditions are lacking. Will God reach out and help when situations are not ideal for medical procedures? Are doctors trained enough to perform surgeries of any sort? Prayer and faith go hand in hand to assist in this book of physical ailment, love, courage, and trust. Short, clean reading for all!!

Christian Historical Romance

While I enjoyed this story tremendously, I was certainly disappointed when it ended. It seemed to need at least another chapter to complete the story, but it pulled me in and kept me enthralled throughout! The narrator was excellent!

Twists and turns all throughout!

The heartfelt story of these sisters' lives is told so elegantly with Clark's voice. Although the love story may not be the conventional fairy tale, listeners are certainly in for a treat with the plot twist of the century!

The story was OK.

First of all although the narrator was OK she made charlottes husband sound like a geeky nerd and not like the handsome rugged call boy he was supposed to be, I thought you did a great job with the doctor, but I didn’t like how it ended with Abby go back home? Would Charlotte survive her surgery? That was just too many open questions. Did the boy hanging outside Who got all the clean towels get the food he waited for And why if he had two parents who were at the party with them would you wait for food were they for and if they knew he hung outside waiting for food why didn’t they give them some instead of letting him just hang around? It just seemed like he was just invented for the purpose of gathering clean towels. They just had too many open questions. For the most part if this book had an actual ending it would’ve been great! I can only hope the story continues in the next book although I read the summary and sadly it doesn’t look like it. Also what was the point of Noah who are smart
