Carolynn Kemp has lost everything. Her entire family is gone and her life is in turmoil. Her hopes and dreams of making every one of their lives better are dashed and she is tempted to give up and accept the misery that she seems destined for. But will life let her lie down and give in, or will she find the inner strength to start again?
Winston Piper is jealous of the happiness his friends have found in recent times, and so, he takes the chance that he might find love by mail order, too. But his fears are not that he won't find the woman he so desperately craves, he worries that she will not give him the chance to make her happy. Can he convince her that her past does not have to overwhelm them and deny them of happiness, and that it is their future he cares about most?
I thought this was a great plot but when her parents came up missing and the outcome of why I couldn’t buy into that. I can’t tell you why or it would give the story away. It is a sweet clean read that is short and to the point. No fillers here the author gives the facts with some heartbreaking times.
Mr. Bennett’s narration is outstanding as he brings to life the story with strong emotions, confusion, power, control, anger, loss, heartache. You can hear all these in his voice as he builds each character giving us their strengths and weakness. His female and male voices are wonderful you always know who is talking and just what they are feeling. There are no background noises, no volume changes just a very clean clear audio that really pulls you in. If any breaks were taken you cannot tell. What really makes this an outstanding audio is how the narrator really brings it to life, you have no trouble getting lost in his pleasant voice which makes it very easy to picture the scenes in your mind. He really gives character to the characters as he puts his self in their place. Mr. Bennett gives the full impact through his voice as your heart goes out to a few characters and what they are going through. Each character goes through a trying time, the narrator has no trouble showing you exactly what they are feeling. It is a great narration that really pulls you in leaving you laughing and sad at other times.
Winston is a very caring and loving man that really pulls you in. Carolynn and her story just breaks my heart. All in all it was a nice read with some very entertaining reading. The author ties it up very nicely and does explain about her family I just don’t see it going down that way not for a very close net family with a daughter that comes home every weekend.
Karla Gracey has never let me down with her sweet romances. Carolyn finds love is a wonderful addition to the Ruby Springs Brides series
J Scott Bennett, as always, narrates with style and emotion.
I was provided a copy of this audible and am happy to give my honest review
Enjoyed this one very much especially when the others in the neighborhood decided to help out digging in the rubble of the tenement building that had collapsed. I was glad to see her and her family were reunited
Karla Gracey continues her Ruby Springs series with the correspondence between Winston and Carolyn. Winston is the doctor in Ruby Springs and is looking for a companion. Carolyn is looking for a way to get her family out of the tenament of NY. When tragedy strike Carolyn, Winston comes to see if he can help, but will it be enough to help and win her heart? I really enjoyed this installment, it was a little different in the content, not the usual storyline. Karla Gracey really gives a well developed plot with her short books creating a happy listen,
J. Scott Bennett continues the narration of this series with his calm and warm voice. He is perfect for this book.
Mail Order Bride: Carolyn Finds Love
Ruby Springs Brides, Book 3
Book 3 in this series. A short, sweet, mail order historical fiction. This book has the usual man and woman corresponding with the possibility of marriage. However some of the obstacles in this book are more intense than other books. I’m not saying they are “dark” just somewhat different. I liked the twists happening during the story line instead of being referred to as a past incident.
The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Another enjoyable listen performed by J. Scott Bennett.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
