Montana Territory, August 1883
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.
Luke, third son of Montana's wealthy McCutcheon family, is different from his brothers. As the offspring of a Cheyenne warrior, he carries a chip on his shoulder for all to see. His flashing eyes and handsome face make Faith feel she's stepped into some long-ago tale where men cherish their women--and keep them safe. If only she could trust him! Faith is on the run, and although she's pampered and protected by Luke and his family, she just can't risk the consequences of sharing the details of her past--one that's hunting to take her back to the nightmare she's just escaped. Happy-ever-afters are for fairytales, she reminds herself sternly as her heart feels the warm pull of his. Still, she can't help but dream of a loving family, a home to call her own, a beautiful and bright...Montana Dawn.

Easy listening- Highly recommended
What did you like most about Montana Dawn: McCutcheon Family Series, Book 1?
What I liked most about the book were the circumstances surrounding where Luke and Faith meet, when the characters are on the cattle run and when Luke goes off on his own to discover the truth behind Faith's situation.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Montana Dawn: McCutcheon Family Series, Book 1?
When Luke helps to deliver Faith's baby and he takes off his shirt to wrap the infant in it.
Which character – as performed by Corey M. Snow – was your favourite?
Corey M. Snow did an amazing job with the narration. I'm glad a male voice was chosen as Luke's character really stood out for me as the most likeable. There were a lot of male characters in this novel and the narrator made them individually come to life in a realistic way. They all sounded exactly as I would imagine cowboys to sound.
The narrator was excellent at completely changing his tone of voice for the female characters as well. Very well done.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I got caught up in this story very quickly and I could listen to it quite happily or a quite a lengthy period of time. I got a bit impatient with the storyline when Faith was staying at the McCutcheon's ranch as not a lot new happened. Ward was fairly quiet in the intimidation front and Faith was frustrating in her inability to confide in Luke despite the numerous opportunities he gave her.
Any additional comments?
I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook and would definitely check in with the McCutcheon clan again. There is a whole series ready to be enjoyed!
I would also jump at the chance to listen to books narrated by Corey M. Snow as it will be professionally produced, sound fantastic and the characters will really come to life.

Running Away to Somewhere Better
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.
