CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Firstly I feel I must say, although the story-line of this book is good, it needs editing. I found errors in grammar and nouns. Also, the dialect of the region was hard for me to follow at times. Unfamiliar with the use of slang in this region, at times I was unsure what the character was actually saying.
That said, I found I enjoyed the story-line. The premise of the story was emotional and heart wrenching. Author Laura Fletcher skillfully crafted the deep feelings of Sandra, Samuel, and Betsy. Ms. Fletcher created several plots twist which kept me reading to the last page. All good stories must have a villain; Ms. Fletcher crafted a fine villain for her story-line. This character you will love to hate. I wanted to shake her until her eyes rolled.
RECOMMENDATION MISS HOPEFUL MAIL ORDER BRIDE: STARS 3
Although Miss Hopeful Mail Order Bride is an emotional story containing a clean sweet romance with well-developed characters and pacing, I felt I must reduce the stars from four to three due to editing. I recommend this book to young adults and adults.
