Publisher's Summary

Lottie: Bride of Delaware is the first book in the unprecedented 50-book American Mail-Order Brides series!

Lottie Mitchell had a problem, a really big problem, and the only one who cared was, well, her. Oh sure, her roommate, Beth, gave stock to her theories of who was responsible for a tragedy that put herself and dozens of her co-workers out of a job. And yes, someone came up with the idea that in order to survive, they could all become mail-order brides, but still...Lottie wanted to know the truth. Did her sister, Leora, believe her? To a point, but not enough to keep from telling her that if she didn't drop her silly notions, she'd miss her own wedding! Her other roommates, Alice and Judith, groaned at any mention of helping her snoop around like a Pinkerton, and then there was her groom....

Sam Cooke gave up the notion of finding anyone from Clear Creek to marry. What available women there were, were either too young or too old, and heaven help him if his mother, Belle Cooke, got his matchmaking Aunt Sadie to help find him a bride. No, some things a man had to do on his own. But when he travels east on business to fetch his mail-order bride, little did he know what sort of hi-jinx awaited him on the journey home with her!

Totally loved it from start to finish

What is there not to love, from the wit, humor, romance to a mystery of Mr. Brown and delightful characters. It has a great plot, and holds your interest from the begging to the end. Life for women at this time was hard you didn't have much of a choice, if you were luck you got married to a good man and had a family. If you were unlucky you tried to from a job that didn't take away from your reputation. When one is young and loses their parents to a fire, than years later loses their job to a fire it is a lot to take in, in both cases not knowing where the next meal will come from to if they can keep a roof over their heads a group of women have little choice but to come mail order brides and hope for the best.

Lottie's story is very touching she is hiding a few things, her husband is hiding a big thing. As they come together and learn about each other and become man and wife there are issues that do come between them. It was a lot of fun watching the play, fight and make up. I loved the humor and even laughed out loud a few times. I did a lot of smiling why I watched these two become a family with each other and their family members. I love his grandfather he is a hoot. It really was a delightful, heart warming listen

I thought the narrator did a wonderful job, loved his character voices. I always knew who was talking and what they were feeling. He really made be feel the emotions each character was going through. The different voice fit the characters well and the narrator really brought the story to life. There was no background noise, no volume changes and no repeating of words. This was a very clear audio that I will be listening to again.

I totally Loved This story.

A Journey of Healing

SImply wonderful!! Lottie was one of the young women out of a job when the mill burned down and she and her sister and friends decided there was not much hope to find a job so they decided to become mail order brides. Lottie's soon to be husband, Sam Cooke, was coming to her so they could marry and then go to his home instead of her going to him as was the usual practice.
This story touched my heart so much. Lottie was obsessed with proving Mr. Brown who had owned the Mill they all had worked at was responsible for burning it down. She could not let it go, even when she met wonderful Sam and almost ruined their wedding. It is hard to let things go through our lives and this was a lesson in forgiveness.
Sam was wonderful and I think I fell in love with him a little myself and I understood Lottie. I listened every second I had and with the amazing narration of Michael Rahhal which was perfect and the writing of the fabulous Kit Morgan, I really did not want the story to end. But the great news is there is still Lenora, Lottie's sister and several of the other girls to learn about!! Loved every second!!!
