Susan Farr loses her parents and her home in one swoop. She takes her horse and rides to Independence, Missouri, to join a wagon train and start a new life. Mike Todd, the wagon master, doesn’t allow single women to have their own wagons. It causes fights and distractions. Susan solves her problem by marrying Clancy Willis in name only. Unfortunately, Clancy’s true nature doesn’t take long to show, and Susan finds herself married to a drunkard.
Along the trail, once again, Susan is forced to marry another man in name only, and this time it is Mike Todd. As soon as they make it to Oregon, they plan to have the marriage annulled, but their hearts become hopelessly entangled.
Mike Todd has two brothers to raise. They are guides on the wagon train, and he decided long ago he’d raise them and forget about having a wife and child of his own. Little does he know that he’d find a forever type of love.
Both vow to sacrifice their hearts’ desire to give the other happiness. Will they come to realize their lives and love have only just begun?

What an enjoyable listen!
“We’ve Only Just Begun” was an entertaining tale that tackles an age-old question of arranged marriage – are they doomed for misery or can true love spark under preordained circumstances? I really enjoyed the plot twists and empathized with the protagonist in her many struggles. Tom Jordan, the narrator, did a superlative job making all the characters extremely relatable. I found the audiobook to be a heart-warming tale that I would gladly listen to a second time. Thoroughly recommended.

The Start of a GREAT Series
The Todd brothers have dedicated their lives to help emigrants travel to the "promised land" in Oregon. Mike Todd is the trail boss while this brother's act as his scouts. Mike's passion is the trail and nothing will distract him from this lifestyle or his brothers whom he loves . . . until a single woman tries to join the train. He allows women on the trail, but they must be married.
Susan just wants a new life so decides that Oregon is where to start it. She must solve the one problem that stands in her way and she gets married. She quickly discovers that her new "in name only" husband is a terrible man. Along the trail, this man dies and Susan once again finds that she must marry, and to the man is the very one who made the "marriage rule".
Will these two lonely hearts find each other and see that love just may be worth falling for?
This is a great start to a wonderful series! Kathleen weaves a beautiful story of hope, misunderstanding, loyalty, and hardship. Tom Jordan is the perfect voice for the Todd brothers!
