Uplifting

I really enjoyed this sweet, clean, uplifting story. It was the first book I have listened to by Kari Trumbo and certainly won’t be the last. It was well written, with realistic and relatable characters and an interesting storyline. J. Scott Bennett is perfect for the narration of this historical romance. He does an amazing job with all the voices and emotions and brings the story to life. I received a free copy of this audiobook and have voluntarily provided an unbiased review.

Teach me to Love

I enjoyed listening to this book. Seeing Izzy grow from a scared woman who had been mentally abused to a woman who could stand on her own two feet. And seeing Conrad get confidence in himself was great. Looking forward to the next books!

Great Start to a new series!

This is a story or how a woman who has to make the best of a terrible situation and meets a man who is living with personal shame. They both learn that friendship, compassion, and love can bring comfort and peace to both of their lives.

I liked this story because Izzy is living a situation that is very plausible in the era of this story as well as Conrad's personal shame. Both were written well and the plot was like one out of a good tv western. It got me excited about this whole series.

J. Scott Bennett brings his slightly raspy, western twang to bring that western flair to Kari’s story. I was pleased that he made all of the characters sound genuine and original. He is a good partner for Kari's series.

patience, love and tenderness

Belle has had a rough life. She was working towards her teaching degree when she fell for the sweet talking senior teacher. She was married to an abusive man before she knew it and was forced to quit her education. Now she's finally free and going to stay with her best friend and family to recuperate. Belle did not count on meeting her friend's brooding brother-in-law. Conrad has the weight of his family's farm on his shoulders and he has a huge secret...he can't read. He believes that he will never find someone that he can trust enough to settle down and start a family...that is until he meets Belle. Both Belle and Conrad have secrets and need patience, love and tenderness to mend them. Sweet story filled with the Fruit of the Spirit.

Clever title for a good book!

This was an enjoyable Christian, old West romance. It was interesting how the two main characters were each trying to teach the other one the life lesson which was needed. A well written plot with great characters. The narration brought the book to life. A love story well worth listening to.

Great Book

Teach Me to Love by Kari Trumbo was a great read. I absolutely loved reading Conrad and Izzy's story. Izzy's husband died after years of abuse. She isn't sure where her life would take her now. She meets Conrad and things start changing for her. I loved reading Izzy and Conrad's story.

Heartwarming Christian Romance

This was entirely enjoyable, heartwarming and such a sweet Christian romance. The story of a young abused widow and a cowboy who struggles with his illiteracy. It was a bit of the predictable romance type, but it was such a sweet telling of the story that it made it a very fun read. The narrator did a wonderful job and was fun to listen to. I definitely would recommend to those who enjoy a good Christian romance free of bad language and sex scenes.

Really draws you in

This is not my normal genre but I really liked this story.
Very realistic. I loved the way the characters were portrayed.
Many of us have troubled pasts, many of us still have troubled presents.
It is always good to hear of someone that treats you as you should be treated... With Love and kindness no matter the past you have had forced on you or chosen to live. Make your own choice and choose to love.

Second time right

A simple plot and predictable ending but easy listening. Izzy was married very young and was abused by her husband. When he dies she must find a new home and way to support herself. It is a gentle respectful romance in the context of his home and family. I enjoyed the narration and felt it added to story. Both characters are hurting and their friendship brings healing. I really appreciate the absence of violence,swearing and sex.

Teach me to love

While this audiobook was on the shorter end, it was very sweet and a nice listen. I really enjoyed the narration by J Scott Bennet. The country accents were believable and not over done. It was a great performance.

Amazing Story!

Learning that your past doesn't dictate your future and that you deserve happiness is something I believe everyone should learn and this book shows just that. These were amazing characters and I loved the message this story brings. 🎧AudiobookObsession

Slow to start

I found this book a little slow to start but once it got going I was hooked. It’s a sweet story of life after abuse in a relationship. Good narration.

Sweet story

This book was a story of hurt, recovery, accomplishment and happiness. It involved a woman who suffered verbal abuse from her husband and who did not have the support of her family to cope. She moves to a small town to teach and there she is allowed to recover and discovers there is more to life.

The story is short and sweet and the narration is outstanding as this narrator has always been.

This book was provided free of charge with the expectation of an honest review.
