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:
"This audio book was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review."

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.

Thank you to Ms. Goss for a good clean book, and to Persephone Rose for a good audio.

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.

Recommended for historical romance readers

I really enjoyed this book. It's my favorite in the series, so far. I liked the characters, and
it had a entertaining plot. This is the second book in the Hearts of Hayes seried, and I'm
anxious to see what's coming next. Great job by Ms Goss and narrator Persephone Rose.
