Aiming for Love: Brides of Hope Mountain, Book 1, Audiobook, Mary Connealy (Author), Barbara McCulloh (Narrator), Recorded Books (Publisher)
Josephine Nordegren is one of three sisters who grew up nearly wild in southwestern Colorado. She has the archery skills of Robin Hood and the curiosity of the Little Mermaid, fascinated by but locked away from the forbidden outside world--a world she's been raised to believe killed her parents. When David Warden, a rancher, brings in a herd much too close to the girls' secret home, her older sister especially is frightened, but Jo is too interested to stay away.
David's parents follow soon on his heels, escaping bandits at their ranch. David's father is wounded and needs shelter. Josephine and her sisters have the only cabin on the mountain. Do they risk stepping into the world to help those in need? Or do they remain separated but safe in the peaks of Hope Mountain?
REVIEW by LAWonder10:
This author has created a thoroughly entertaining Christian novel about three orphaned women raised on a mountain in the early days of Colorado. It is also about ranching, exploring and the lawless times of the early West.
There is a lot of adventure, action, plus, various humorous and, at times, heart-rending situations.
Narrated by Barbara McCulloh, although she started out with an annoying tone and somewhat hesitant beginning, she vastly improved after the first chapter. She then energetically portrayed the different scenes and characters in a convincing, entertaining "voice".
The only other negative is that a section of the story seemed slightly excessive and repetitive.
The Cover Image and Title are a perfect fit! Most of the characters are very endearing and feel real.
I offer a Four and a Half Stars rating for the story and a Four Stars rating for the narration.
