Publisher's Summary

Amelia Llewellyn had a wonderful childhood, but when she lost her beloved Mama to illness as a girl her life changed beyond recognition. All but bringing up her half-brother while her Papa and his new bride travel, she wants so much more for her life than she now has. But how can she change her life, and will she have the courage to follow through with her plans?

Meet Byron Gilbert who tried to stake a claim to some land and was unable to keep it running, but fell in love with the rugged landscape and Silver River. Bad guys need to be beware, because he is a Sheriff with brains and determination, and always gets his man. But will he ever be able to let himself accept the love he so desperately desires?

    "Delightful short sweet clean read"
    Any additional comments?

    A new series of a very touching read one lady gave up everything she has to help run her family home and raise her half brother. Leaving her father and step mother to take off running the business and taking trips to see the world why she is left at home with little or no money. What a heartfelt emotional story of one woman who wants it all but can’t because of her duties to her family.

    Mr. Taylor does a wonderful job of narration from the many different characters to the feel of emotions. You never are in doubt just who is talking or what they are feeling. I found both his female and male voices to be a delight from the strong male to the soft female you could really feel the pain, sorrow, and happiness he gives them. I heard no background noise or any places where the volume changes. If any breaks where taken I could not tell. His voice is strong and clear giving you a delightful listen. His performance is outstanding from the emotion to his voices he really make the story come alive. He is a very talented narrator that pulls the listener in giving a very vivid listen that you can picture the scenes in your mind.

    There isn’t a lot you can say about this without giving the story away. It does have a wonderful plot with wonderful characters. There are family values that mean a lot even a few characters have a lot to learn and learn their lessons well. It was emotional that really pulled on your heartstrings. The author gives you a great ending that makes you wish you were there watching.

    "Maul order Bride Amelia"

    Absolutely loved it! Especially the ending! Having been through much of what Amelia went through as she grew up, I could relate to the story. Loved the monkey too!

    "Mail Order Bride Amelia"

    Mail Order Bride Amelia: Silver River Brides, Book 1
    : Karla Gracey

    A new mail order bride series. Amelia a young woman of privilege has been required to run household and raise her half brother because of choices her father and his wife made. She has a marriage offer from a sheriff in the west and accepts it to escape her life. There are secrets neither have shared, but will love happen and overcome them? A short clean listen and hope characters will reappear as the series progresses.



    The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed by Alan Taylor.

    Story
    "Another great start to a new series!"

    Karla Gracey has a way of creating a short story with well developed characters and plots. This book brings us Amelia, who is taking care of her 5 year old brother. Her father and stepmother are never home. Byron, the sheriff of Silver River is looking for a bride. I especially love these books because we get to see the correspondence between the two and how they get to know each other. Once in Montana, Amelia and Byron overcome some obstacles. Another winner.

    I am so glad Alan Taylor is narrating this series. His rich baritone voice brings the feeling of the old west to the book. Love his performances.

    --I was given a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review
