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?
A very sweet story. I did like the way they brought another character from another book into the story.
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
Mail Order Bride-Sarah's Destiny (Faith Creek Brides #9)
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.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

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.
