Rich girl answers mail order bride add makes for an intriguing story. And as Misty Beller for the author, I knew this one would be a most fantastic read. And it certainly was!!

After her father passed away, Leah Townsend fears for her life and ends up answering a mail order Bride ad she sees while looking for a job. But upon her arrival to the Montana Territory, finds her soon to be husband lost his battle with a grizzly. Her plans altered finds her staying in Montana for an extended time. Thankfully she gets along with Mariam, the sister because the brother of her intended was so filled with anger and bitterness because of loosing the people he loves to this land that he loves. There is no way he wants to even get to know anyone else he may loose.

Another amazing read from author Misty Beller. She writes these ‘life in the rough mountains’ stories like no one else. I love these Montana characters she has created. Abd I love that Leah found people she could love as family. Her entire journey was interesting, and especially her trip to the ranch with ‘ol Mose. He was truly my favorite character. Leah spends a good amount of time with him as they make their way to the ranch. And I loved every minute of it. He reminded me so much of my grandaddy! And after she is at the Bryant Ranch, I enjoyed watching the growth of each character as the story unfolds. I loved reading the details of Montana in the 1800’s, and the beauty of the land. There is really nothing I didn’t like about this story.

One other thing I was impressed with is the way Leah fully trusted God with her life, and how she used her Bible as a Roadmap ad to what God wanted for her life. And it’s all in the Misty Beller style, not preachy, just a gentle weaving of the Christian life into the lives of her characters.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting a nice clean read. But the 1800’s Montana living was kind of rough, so if this is enjoyful for you, this read is a must!
