Fun, Sweet Historical romance

This was a delightful tale of a mail order bride mix-up that turned out to be exactly as it should have. I loved Hattie and Pastor Joshua. Their integrity and growing love was so fun to watch. I enjoyed how they looked to God to help solve their dilemmas. The narrator did an excellent job of giving each character their unique voice in the story. The story ends with a couple of secondary characters in need of their own story. I look forward to reading or listening to more from this author.
