Publisher's Summary

Victoria Lowell grew up in the privileged world of the Boston Brahmins. She had everything she could want...except love. After being jilted, the society miss travels a thousand miles to marry a man she's never met whose romantic letters won her heart. To her surprise, and dismay, the groom who meets her at the train station exhibits little interest in romance.

David O'Brien, a divorced shopkeeper of Irish descent, wants nothing to do with matters of the heart. But his young daughter needs a mother and his meddling sister believes she's done him a favor by corresponding with a mail-order bride. Impressed by Victoria, he holds off on revealing the true author of the letters she received and sets a date for their marriage. Love isn't part of the bargain, as far as he's concerned. But love is what Victoria has come this far to find.

When the truth finally comes out, it will take more than a miracle to deliver a happily-ever-after.

    "Heartwarming!"
    Where does Victoria: Bride of Kansas rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Victoria and David's story is a heartwarming mail order bride historical romance that I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend to other fans of this genre. E.E. Burke brings the past alive with a delightful Christmas story that will touch your heart and will bring together three lonely people who are longing for what we all want most. To love and be loved.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I was delighted by the tender relationship between Victoria and Fanny, a six year old child who hasn't spoken one word since her mother ran away and abandoned her and her father two years ago. Victoria is very patient with Fanny and child and father are healed by her gentle spirit.


    What about Liisa Ivary’s performance did you like?

    I thought Liisa did an amazing job portraying all of the characters in the story while she interpreted their emotional vulnerabilities with the different inflections of her voice. It was easy to follow the story and I found myself focusing on every descriptive word she spoke. As a reader I tend to miss some of the small details in my haste to follow the story and listening to the spoken word allowed me to enjoy every single syllable.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I listened during a four hour car ride and it was entertaining and relaxing at the same time. I can't think of a better way to travel.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm so happy that I discovered how enjoyable audio books can be and I think everyone should try them.

    "Love can overcome secrets"

    I loved this book of longing, misunderstanding, dashed dreams, secrets, hope, love and forgiveness. It was a book of strong emotion and characters! E.E. has done it again!

    Victoria is running from her life circumstances. David is running from his past. Both are longing for a new life of love and opportunities. Throw in a meddling, yet well-meaning sister and a daughter who will not speak and you have a wonderful story full of emotion, conflict, and longing for acceptance and love!

    "Tender, Loving Story!"

    once again I must give credit to the narrator of this audio book. Liisa Lvary did a wonderful job reading the story to me. Liisa was very expressive in using different voices for each character in the story.

    Victoria was such a brave young woman to travel over one thousand miles to marry a man she only knew through letters.

    David was in shock to find out his sister Maggie sent for a mail order bride for him, how did that work out? What would his daughter, Frannie think of This?

    David and Victoria talked about handfasting, what was it? Could they learn to love one another?

    My recommendation is that you need to get the book and read it for yourself or get the audio book and let Liisa read it to you. I'm quite sure you will enjoy this book as much as I have.

    "What a lovely Christmas story."

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to my first audio book. I am so glad I choose Victoria: Bride of Kansas. The writting by E.E Bruke was delightful as all her stories are. I found this story sweet, i enjoyed how Victoria interaction with her step daughter. It brought tears to my eyes. I only wish the story was longer... but, that's how I feel with every well written story.


    I must admit I did not think I would be able to get into a audio book but the narration by Liisa Ivary drew me into the story so quickly I forgot right away that I was listening to a book and not reading it for myself! I was drawn to her different vocalizations of each character. I was able to quickly fold laundry towards the end of the story without even being aware of doing something that causes my body so much pain. So I sincerely thank both E.E. Burke and Liisa Ivary for distracting my mind so my disabled body could push threw something that causes great pain for me!

    "WONDERFUL WONDERFUL!!!"
    What did you love best about Victoria: Bride of Kansas?

    That both of main characters found such a sweet true after both had been hurt so badly before.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course Victoria. I love how she didn't care anything about the wealth and privilege she left behind. Also loved how she wanted to help others by giving anything of value she had to others to help them. Especially how she gave Fannie the doll so unselfishly that was a beloved treasure of hers from her late Mother.


    Which character – as performed by Liisa Ivary – was your favorite?

    I liked how she preformed sweet little Fannie.


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

    I laughed and cried this definitely a sweet wonderful endearing story.


    Any additional comments?

    A first for me by EE Burke but definitely not my last!! I also will be purchasing a printed copy for my keeper bookshelf
