Endearing Love Story

I have read this book at least 5 times. So I was excited to listen to the audio version. There were spots where the narrator lends a different inflection or interpretation to dialogue than I would have done or than I did in my mind while reading. That is part of the fun of an audiobook. This narrator gave just the right drama and inflection to the book so that it was thoroughly enjoyable for me! In addition, it is such a romantic read. The story never fails to make me feel as if I am living the experiences with the characters. I also love how well the children are characterized. Writing dialogue for children is difficult, but K. Osbourne manages to make them sound just right for their ages.

Eh ...

Not much to distinguish this one - not as squeaky clean as most mail-order stories but nothing more ch in the way of a storyline either.

Lovely story and even better being able to listen through it all

I would greatly pass on this book to all and can't wait to start the next. Thank you Kristen for a job done so believable.

Absolutely loved it

What did you love best about Mail Order Mama?

Everything I loved how Emily dealt with her awful mother in law

What did you like best about this story?

How Emily and Ben comes together and how Emily loved the girls of and how she handled her awful Mother-in-law

Have you listened to any of Amanda Friday’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first but I loved it

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Ben realized that his mother had done the things that Emily said she had and that he stuck up for Emily

Any additional comments?

I loved this story and will listen to this book again and again
