Publisher's Summary

Two strangers. One clandestine wedding. Many hidden stories.

Discouraged by his limited prospects and tired of trying to find a bride in a traditional manner, Elias Wheeler places an advertisement requesting a mail-order bride and mother for his young daughter. Rebecca Malone, eager to escape an abusive past, travels to Montana to become Elias’ wife despite only exchanging a few letters. Learning to care for one another proves easy; learning to trust proves much more difficult.

Elias and Rebecca must navigate the waters of blending families while learning to depend on one another with confidence, loving support, and faith. Together they must learn to rely on each other and what they hope to build while accepting that perfection isn’t the goal; love is.

Another beautiful romance with suspense!

This book was very good I totally enjoyed it and would recommend it and the other books in the series to anyone who enjoys historical fiction with romance, suspense and mystery.. In this book we meet Rebecca, she has come to Hollow to be a mail order bride to Elias Wheeler a rancher. Both Elias and Rebecca have troubled pasts, that they prefer to keep from each other. So their marriage starts out without honesty, add in an 8 year old little girl used to taking care of her father and it spells disaster. Or does it! You will listen to this story and at times your heart will break, other times it will pound with fear . A very engaging story. The reason for 4 stars is because there are places where the narrator repeats a sentence or words. I don't know if this is how the author wrote it or a mistake of the narrator or maybe even a problem with the production but don't let that put you off or you will miss a great book.
I received a free code for this book from Audiobooks Unleashed to listen to on Audible. this review is my own honest opinion.

Excellent

The Wheeler family, their past and hope for the future. With a young daughter he looks for a mail order bride. A story of forgiving the past, and looking for the future, and buikding a family. A good clean story with good narration by Heather. Given audio for my voluntary review
