Even the greatest tragedy can light the path to love and happiness.
Jessie Jarvis is a drifter, and when he begins work for Bill Paulson, he doesn’t imagine he’ll be staying in Daisy Creek for long. But the town captures his heart, and finally, he feels the urge to settle down.
Inspired by Bill’s marriage, Jessie places an ad for a mail-order bride, and soon he’s falling in love with Mary Marsh’s letters.
Mary’s life has been beset by tragedy, and she’s a vision of strength as she wrestles with grief over her father’s death and her mother’s resulting sickness.
A new life with Jessie in Daisy Creek could be exactly what she’s looking for: an opportunity to build a bright future in the face of tragedy.
But tragedy hasn’t finished with Mary, and when she arrives at Daisy Creek, she’s met with devastating news that sends all her plans into turmoil.
There’s a savior on the horizon, though, and as she struggles to come to terms with her new circumstances, Pastor John is shining light in the darkness – and a surprising twist in Mary’s story.
Mary has a future ahead of her, and a love story is about to unfurl…but it isn’t the one she expected, and she will have to deal with far more heartache before she can make sense of what’s truly in store for her.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from Audiobooks Unleashed in exchange for an honest review.
Book 2 in the Daisy Creek Brides Series was an enjoyable experience. Mary answered the ad and exchanged letters with Jesse until her mother passed. She made the decision to travel to Nebraska to meet him. She establishes life long friendships along the way that help her through tough times. The story was believable and the warmth of the community showed through. The narration was good. I’ve read several books by this author and find them interesting and heartfelt.
I listened to this great book by Amelia Rose. This was a great storyline and I fell in love with the characters. It is a great continuation of this series, however, you can read it as a stand-alone and not be lost.

This is another great book in this series. This book is about Mary she comes to Daisy Creek and her intented has been killed. She has to start over. This book if a feel good story. There should be an extra star for this one. I highly recommend this book and series. Gina Dobbs does an amazing job narration this book. I received a copy of this book from audiobooks unleashed but that has no influence on my review.

Having done over 25 books from this narrator, Gina Dobbs, she is consistently very good. I may be shallow, but if a narrator mispronounces a few words or repeats a sentence, it disrupts my listening pleasure. Dobbs uses a variety of breath placements, so you do not get that annoying sing-songy pattern.
