A fascinating tale!

What did you love best about Mail Order Bride?

One of my favorite things in this story was Elizabeth's tender heart, with her sister nuns, her attitude toward her horses, and her loving manner in hearing Colton's heart-wrenching tale of losing his family.

What does Joe Smith bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I particularly liked how Mr. Smith read The Prodigal Son passage in the Bible. Even though I've read and heard this parable dozens of times, Mr. Smith's dramatic reading made it feel as if I were that prodigal child, being forgiven by my Father, no matter how many times I have failed or disappointed Him. Praise God!
