Publisher's Summary

Leah Townsend, a recently orphaned heiress, flees Richmond after discovering her fiancé's plot to kill her after their wedding. She needs a safe place to hide, and finds herself accepting a newspaper marriage proposal from a God-fearing young rancher in the Montana territory. But when Leah arrives at the mountain ranch, she learns her intended husband was killed by a grizzly, leaving behind a bitter older brother and a spunky younger sister.

When Gideon Bryant finds a city girl standing in his log cabin, his first thought is to send her back where she came from. He's lost too many people to the wild elements of these mountains - his parents, his wife, and now his brother. His love for this untamed land lives on, but he's determined not to open his heart to another person.

But when an accident forces Leah to stay at the ranch for seven more months, can Gideon protect his heart from a love he doesn't want? Has Leah really escaped the men who seek her life?

Mispronounced words an unfortunate distraction.

I loved the story, however the mispronounced words gave the impression of it being read by a computer. Instead of hearth she kept saying "herth", and there were many other similarly mispronounced words. I did finish the book, and I enjoyed the story very much, the characters were sweet.

Good Clean Godly

how refreshing to listen to a story that I don't have to wade through foul language or other compromises with Christian values. it was an intriguing story with a good outcome and hard to put down.

Lovely Story

I enjoyed the story very much. Unfortunately, the many mis-pronunciations drove me crazy and overshadowed the reader's lovely voice.

Potentially good...poor execution

Would you be willing to try another book from Misty M. Beller? Why or why not?

Yes, as long as there's a different narrator.

How could the performance have been better?

The narration is very amateur, I hate to say.:( It ruined the book for me. Her voice for Gideon sounded like a moping Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh. It was forced and excruciating to listen to. Her vocal inflections did not fit the appropriate moods for the story. She sounded happy when narrating a somber scene, or conversation; calm when she should have sounded distressed, etc.

Entertaining

I enjoyed the book but it seemed a little slow. Part of that may have been due to the performance. The reading seemed too forced and stiff and took away from the storyline in places. Overall I enjoyed The Lady and the Mountain Man.
I received this audible book to review and received no reimbursement for the review.

Felt like young adult fiction to me...

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I guess the story line held my attention enough to want to know how it ended, but it was difficult to get through it. I found myself being critical of the writing and the performance of the narrator all the way through it. It was very distracting.

Would you be willing to try another one of LeAnn Pashina’s performances?

No. It was so hard to get through. The two female characters sounded exactly alike with this breathless monotone sound, it just about forced me to quit the book. The characters were monotone whether the storyline was happy or sad, and mostly was delivered matter of factly without much emotion.

I loved it because it really tells you that you cannot judge a person by there looks and demeanor.

What other book might you compare The Lady and the Mountain Man to and why?

Mail order brides series. How brave one would have to be to go across the country and marry someone you did not know and a different lifestyle

What does LeAnn Pashina bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

What life was like to the mountain settlers.How hard they worked.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was sad for all the pain they had to endur when they got hurt.

The Lady and the Mountain Man

The brave story of a young girl overcoming the drawbacks of a rich inheritance. Well and expressively narrated.
