Montana Dawn by Caroline Fyffe
The action and nail-biting suspense keeps you looking forward to chapter after chapter.
When Luke McCutcheon finds Faith Brown about to give birth in her rickety wagon, his first instincts are to ride for help. Instead, he stays and delivers a beautiful baby girl.
Unable to leave the pretty young widow and her little son and newborn unprotected in the Montana wilderness, he brings them along on his family’s cattle drive, to the absolute delight of the other friendly cowboys.
Review by Edward Millner:
We’ve all been between a rock and a hard place at one time or the other. Faith has had a hard life which has recently reached the breaking point. She’s on the run, but from what?
Then there’s Luke McCutcheon. A strong man with strong values, but with hauntings of his own. This first book in the McCutcheon Family Series introduces you to the whole family, their ranch hands, and some of the townsfolk of Y Knot, Montana.
This is also one of the towns in the Mail-Order Brides series, of which Caroline Fyffe and Debra Holland each write compelling stories about finding out who you really are and what you didn’t even know you were looking for.
The audiobook is a real treat. Corey Snow does great work putting voice to all the colorful characters along with a few unsavory ones that let us know there are those we need to watch out for. And that there is always a need for heroes. You feel like your part of the family. With all the action and nail-biting suspense to keep you looking forward to chapter after chapter. I highly recommend it.
Review by Dorothy:
“A Truly Great Story”
What did you love best about Montana Dawn?
I loved the interaction of the family, the birth of a baby in a wagon and the name of that baby.
What did you like best about this story?
I could truly feel the great heart of Luke. His sincere caring about Faith and her children.
Have you listened to any of Corey M. Snow’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
This is a new experience for me. I enjoyed listening to Mr. Snow and his voice inflections as he read this book.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Listening to Luke’s Mother relay the circumstances surrounding his birth and having an Indian father made me feel I could understand how this family came together.
Any additional comments?
I read this book a couple years ago and now have listened to the audio of this story. I can honestly say that I got more out of this book by hearing it read to me. I had forgotten how wonderful it is to listen to someone read to me. I loved it!
