If a grieving surly rancher who's just lost his brother and sister-in-law in an accidental vehicular homicide and now has their three children to rear needs anything else on his plate, it is a mail-order wife. Travis Thompson has to face facts - he cannot do it all himself and he has managed to alienate all the women in town who could and would help him. Advertising for a bride is his last chance to salvage his life before he loses the children to the foster care system. The children's constant comparison of Travis's home life to their parents' does not help. Shy, mousy-haired, short, librarian Mary Warner at once senses the opportunity to get a life. If she stays in Louisiana, she will wither away until she is like a dusty volume on the bottom shelf of the back rack, a book that no one ever checks out. Travis's wish for a long-legged, well-endowed blonde are left unmet, as Mary reminds him of nothing so much as Minnie Mouse when she gets off the plane and two days later they are married. Look for a few weeks of tough adjustment which is much harder on Travis than on Mary, whose skills in the kitchen and with the sewing machine are second to her ability to take charge of a household. There are a lot of elements here: the grieving children, a grieving Travis who has no time for grief, and Mary adjusting from a damp Louisiana to a dry Montana. And then there's Travis's reputation in the town as a hell-raiser. Who would have thought he'd advertise for a wife, much less settle on someone like Mary? The subplots are the man responsible for the auto accident that killed Lee and Janice and orphaned their children and the man's son, who has fallen for a woman who feels their worlds are too far apart. With her usual skill as a writer, Macomber manages to pull these somewhat disparate elements together in a tough but tender love story. I check my local book store and library for new Macomber books on a regular basis. She never disappoints.

Now here is a book that could easily be made into a Hallmark channel movie! It was a very nice story with a very happy and satisfying ending. It was easy to get into, though not overly filled with excitement. There is a little "spice" here and there, but very tastefully done. This is an easygoing and relaxing novel to read with everything working out almost too good to be true... all kinds of warm fuzzies. You will giggle, maybe sniffle ever-so-slightly and get lots of warm fuzzies. It's a great nighttime read or a book for a lazy relaxing weekend.

You can't help but be reminded of `Sarah, Plain and Tall' when reading Debbie Macomber's novel; the main premise is very similar. A woman answers a newspaper advertisement placed by a rancher in need of a wife. In `Morning Comes Softly', however, the setting is present day Montana. Or, to be more accurate, Montana circa 1993, the year of this novel's first issue.

Mary Warner is a 32-year-old librarian, small of stature, big of heart. Alone now after the death of her mother, her feelings of loneliness are exacerbated when she reads Travis Thompson's newspaper advertisement. Travis has had some heartache of his own. His brother and sister-in-law have been killed in a suspicious car crash. Their three children are now in Travis's care, but he's having problems coping with his new responsibilities.

The opening chapters are particularly striking as Mary's loneliness is described in poignant detail. She yearns to be a wife and mother, but her perceived lack of beauty and slight build have badly dented her self-confidence. Meanwhile, the surly Travis spurns the local townswomen's offers of help, preferring to manage the children in his own way. With the threat of having the children taken into care hanging over him, Travis realizes that desperate action must be taken.

The anticipation that the author builds up ahead of the lead characters' eventual meeting makes for captivating reading - as does the rest of this novel. The story is certainly derivative, but that should not deter anyone who enjoys good romantic fiction from reading this book. There's plenty to enjoy here. There are some nice touches of humor and some very touching scenes too. A sub-plot involving Travis's desperate search to find the person responsible for his brother's death gives the novel some added depth.

I admit that I don't usually read romances, but sometimes I'm in the mood to curl up with a cozy romance novel such as Macomber writes. I've read several by her, and I think this was the weakest.

Of course, you have to surrender all skepticism about a situation in a novel like this, but within the context of the situation, it needs to make some sense. In this novel, it didn't. The premise is that two people, desperate to be married (for different reasons), have a mail-order marriage (resulting from an ad placed looking for a wife). I could believe that in the long run, this might work out, as arranged marriages often do. In this book, however, the bonding took place far too quickly to be credible. THere was too little in the way of plot or character development. Although the setting was a Montana ranch, which could have offered many opportunities for richness, they might as well have been on a farm in Kansas. Although the woman was from Louisiana, I came away thinking that the author had little understanding of that culture, because once in Montana, all the character had left was a Southern accent.

By the time I was 50 pages from the end, I was tired of reading the book and just skimmed the ending. The supposed mystery was no mystery to me -- it was pretty obvious who the criminal was.

I would not recommend this book to anyone but a die-hard Macomber fan. She's written books that are much, much better, and would-be readers she read those instead.
