Publisher's Summary

Sarah Clinton has lived in Faith Creek her entire life. Her family were among the very first people to arrive and settle in the then wild and untamed land. Quiet and shy, she finds her place working for Maeve Fountain and begins to wish she had the feisty woman's determination and spirit. Taking her destiny in her own hands, she responds to an advertisement, hoping to find the happiness so many around her in Faith Creek have done, but can she trust that he truly wants her and not her effervescent and amiable employer?

Wilbur Franklin has always wanted a simple life. As a Montana banking clerk he can understand what draws people to up sticks and change everything in their lives, but has always felt he lacked the courage to do something so drastic, so brave, so reckless himself. But a friendship made as he tried to find himself a bride leads him to do just that. But, will his gamble pay off?

Sweet Historical Romance

What a wonderful and sweet story! Two shy people who have always felt alone and overlooked finally break out of their solitude and forge a tight bond together! The narration was very good but all the older men in this story seemed to have the same voice. The bank owner, the newspaper man, and the father, all sounded the same to me.

quick and easy listen

I love listening to the stories from Faith Creek. I think each story is great and the characters are wonderful. I am glad I discovered this author. I have enjoyed this series so far and will continue to listen to the rest of the books. I enjoy listening to the narrator as well. He brings each story to life. I would recommend them to others.

Sarah's Destiny

I enjoyed listening to this audible. unlike the others from Karla Gracey, this one seemed to be lacking something, perhaps a bit of misadventure. Still a wonderful story to listen to. The narration is always a joy to listen to. Alan Taylor is one of my favorite narrators

Sarah's Destiny

Mail Order Bride-Sarah's Destiny (Faith Creek Brides #9)
:Karla Gracey

This is a sweet, clean historical western mail order brides romance in the Faith Creek Brides series. Maeve takes Sarah on as a seamstress. Wilbur has a friend in Faith Creek and Sarah answers his ad. Will Sarah and Wilbur suit, or will he's hope for a quiet life escape him.


The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Alan Taylor is always an enjoyable listen.

Love these shorts!

Karla Gracey continues her sweet mail order bride series with Sarah! Sarah is a seamstress taken under the wing of Maeve and is lonely. After seeing the success of others in town, answers an ad in the paper, and anxiously waits for a reply. Little does she know, the ad she answered is a man that Maeve had corresponded with. Wilbur is looking for a change, but is the type of man that is very conservative. Will he be willing to come to Faith Creek and settle down? Is he really still in love with Maeve? This story has some fun little twists and the characters are charming. With the story voiced by Alan Taylor, you will be in for a treat when you give this a listen.
