Loved it, loved it, loved it. It made me laugh at times and cry at others. Very good. This must be one of Debbie's earlier books first published in 1993. Doesn't have cell phones or computers or internet in the story at all.

What did I learn from this book? Here is a quote from the book that I thought was great: "Life's lessons didn't come cheap, and Travis wasn't there to issue any discount coupons."

I wish there was a sequel because I love these characters after just one book and would like to

I really like it. An epilogue would have been nice.

Enjoyable read but I did get frustrated at the heroines reference to "being not pretty"

I got this book off of Swaptree because I liked the idea of the storyline. I received a note with it from the previous reader stating how much she enjoyed it, and still I put off reading it for awhile. I finally picked it up and started reading it and got sucked in. This is my first Debbie Macomber book and she truly knows how to write. Her use of words is different than I'm used to reading and made the book so much more enjoyable. I wasn't sure how the storyline was going to play out, but I enj ...more

What an exquisite read "Morning Comes Softly" was for me. I have been on a mail-order bride jaunt since reading LH's Duncan's Bride and this beautiful story of shy librarian, Mary Warner and rough Montana rancher Travis Thompson took my breath away. Mary is the type of heroine that I adore, kind, compassionate, intelligent, educated, and self-assured. Finding herself past thirty and all alone in the world after the death of her beloved brother an mother, Mary decides to leave her comfortable alb ...more

Where to start? This book was one of the best of Ms. Macomber, everything from the character in the story was well written and perfectly. Emotional and sentimental, fun and humorous, two perfect love story for price of one book. Loved it and recommend it to all.
After reading several historical mail-order bride stories this was a nice change as it was a contemporary book.
After the death of his brother and sister in-law rancher Travis takes their three children in and is trying to give them a good home so that they don't go into foster home. He doesn't do that well and after failing to find a housekeeper he places an add for a bride in newspaper. Mary, a librarian from Lousiana answers the add and as she fits Travis' and children's wishes they get marrie

Baca ini karena Aline bilang bagus. Sederhana, tapi manis. Berhubung selera kami mirip, so I gave it a try setelah beberapa bulan.
And indeed! I loved it!
Nggak ada adegan gegap gempita menghebohkan. Semuanya terjadi dalam konteks sehari-hari. Pertengkaran mereka lebih karena mereka masih sama-sama asing bagi lainnya dan mereka sedang berusaha menjembatani itu. Ya nggak heran juga sih mengingat mereka cuma kenalan lewat surat. Apa jadinya ya kalo saya iseng menanggapi iklan2x jodoh di koran? :D

The book was a modern twist of mail order bride story. It was too sugary for my taste with many things that stretched credibility, especially, in character development. Take for example our h. At the begging of the story she was characterized as a shy, quite Louisiana spinster of 32 years old who didn't have any dates and was still a virgin. I would think the male population of her town was either blind or stupid. The woman could cook sophisticated dishes, saw dresses for her friends, and sang b ...more
