Leah Townsend, a recently orphaned heiress, flees Richmond after discovering her fiancé's plot to kill her after their wedding. She needs a safe place to hide, and finds herself accepting a newspaper marriage proposal from a God-fearing young rancher in the Montana territory. But when Leah arrives at the mountain ranch, she learns her intended husband was killed by a grizzly, leaving behind a bitter older brother and a spunky younger sister.
When Gideon Bryant finds a city girl standing in his log cabin, his first thought is to send her back where she came from. He's lost too many people to the wild elements of these mountains - his parents, his wife, and now his brother. His love for this untamed land lives on, but he's determined not to open his heart to another person.
But when an accident forces Leah to stay at the ranch for seven more months, can Gideon protect his heart from a love he doesn't want? Has Leah really escaped the men who seek her life?

"Good Clean Godly"
how refreshing to listen to a story that I don't have to wade through foul language or other compromises with Christian values. it was an intriguing story with a good outcome and hard to put down.
loved it greatly. Enjoyed the story. would like more. You could see the setting with the descriptions.
"the lady and the mountain man"
First time with audio book enjoy it . listen while driving home 2 hrs hard to stop .
"Potentially good...poor execution"
Yes, as long as there's a different narrator.
The narration is very amateur, I hate to say.:( It ruined the book for me. Her voice for Gideon sounded like a moping Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh. It was forced and excruciating to listen to. Her vocal inflections did not fit the appropriate moods for the story. She sounded happy when narrating a somber scene, or conversation; calm when she should have sounded distressed, etc.
"Mispronounced words an unfortunate distraction."
I loved the story, however the mispronounced words gave the impression of it being read by a computer. Instead of hearth she kept saying "herth", and there were many other similarly mispronounced words. I did finish the book, and I enjoyed the story very much, the characters were sweet.
I enjoyed the story very much. Unfortunately, the many mis-pronunciations drove me crazy and overshadowed the reader's lovely voice.
I enjoyed the book but it seemed a little slow. Part of that may have been due to the performance. The reading seemed too forced and stiff and took away from the storyline in places. Overall I enjoyed The Lady and the Mountain Man.
I received this audible book to review and received no reimbursement for the review.
"Felt like young adult fiction to me..."
I guess the story line held my attention enough to want to know how it ended, but it was difficult to get through it. I found myself being critical of the writing and the performance of the narrator all the way through it. It was very distracting.
No. It was so hard to get through. The two female characters sounded exactly alike with this breathless monotone sound, it just about forced me to quit the book. The characters were monotone whether the storyline was happy or sad, and mostly was delivered matter of factly without much emotion.
"A love story between God Ana a couple days"
Awesome book about the grace of our lord and his healing power with this couple and the other colorful characters are
"Excellent Story Line!"
I loved it because it really tells you that you cannot judge a person by there looks and demeanor.
Mail order brides series. How brave one would have to be to go across the country and marry someone you did not know and a different lifestyle
What life was like to the mountain settlers.How hard they worked.
I was sad for all the pain they had to endur when they got hurt.
