Enjoyable clean suspenseful read

I can’t think of much worse than not having a family, not knowing what a normal day to day life is but not to have this and take a vow to become a nun without experience it is just to much as Laura finds out once she gets a taste of what a normal life is like.

Mr. Rose narration was very good there was one place where I could hear him sallow but beside that there are no background noises, no volume changes just a very clear clean audio. His character voices both male and female were good, he does need to work a little more on the female voices but they were pretty good. You had no trouble knowing who was talking or what they were feeling. He did hold me on the edge with the outlaws throughout the story. I had no trouble buying into his buildup with excitement and some scary times. I look forward to listening to more of his work.

Ms. Goss gives you a delightful tale of a woman just about ready to take her last vows giving God all her love until she is kidnapped by outlaws and the man who chasing them down bring her back to town. He is her hero one she is very attracted to. She gives a compelling read of mixed feeling of a young women and her love for two which will she pick her vows to God or her vows to the man she is coming to care for. I like how the author showed the confusion, the pain and sorrow of being pulled two different ways. I really enjoyed Jesse’s family with a medaling mother who is ready for her son to settle down. The author gives you suspense, a few thrills, mystery of Laura’s past and the love of children who need a family. It was very touching seeing how this town came together making room for a few more, giving them the love that children need. I really enjoyed this delightful clean read as I am sure you will to.

A delightful adventure

The theme of this story is so very different and clever. A novice nun is saved by a young gentleman rancher after a train hold-up and she is separated from her companions/fellow workers.
What a delightful adventure she has while falling in love! The main and supporting characters are clear and strong, each one playing their part remarkably well.
I was kept totally engrossed and enjoyed every second of this really beautifully told story told by an amazing author, Barbara Goss and the audio is done very nicely by Persephone Rose.
The audiobook version was provided by the author at no cost and this is my honest and unbiased review.

A True Family..


This story centers around Laura, the female lead, who doesn't know what a family life feels like since she was left on church steps when she was just a wee babe.

Her life drastically changes on her way to a religious mission, now enters the male lead, Jesse, and the store takes off with wings.

Both leads were likable.

This story has action, suspense, a bit of prayer, and of course, a bit of romance making it a quick entertaining read or listen.

I read a few reviews where people mention an issue about the religious aspect, I had no such issue, I was expecting it, especially, since the book description mentions that Laura "struggles with her decision to dedicate her life to God".

Persephone Rose did well with the narration.

Note:

Interesting

I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This is another story in a series of how the men in the west got their brides. I loved this one very much. She started out as a nun and ended up a beloved bride. The twists and turns that got her there were filled with suspense and humor. The way the author showed how ill will and greed can turn people into terrors was very well done. I also liked how the author demonstrated what indulging our children's every whim can turn them into. The narrator was very good and pulled all of the emotions out of the words. This was another very well developed story.

READ ME!

Part of a series, Barb Goss does it again! Young novice nun is kidnapped off a train on her way to her new assignment in Texas and finds a real family and love. Definitely worth a "read" as always,

Finding a Family

A very sweet story. The narrator did a great job. These are a wonderful series of sweet clean western stories. Jessie found Laura in a holdup and protected her. Laura was going to be a nun having grown up in an orphanage and never having a family. God had other plans. I was given a copy for an honest review. I highly recommend this story.
