Morning Comes Softly by Debbie Macomber

Morning Comes Softly by Debbie Macomber - 384 pages

In this novel, Mary Werner is a shy, small-town Louisana librarian who answers a personals ad from Travis Thompson, a rancher in Montana.  Travis is looking for a wife after taking in his two orphaned nephews and orphaned niece.  Mary is looking for a change in the wake of her last living  family member's death.  Both decide to help each other out, so Mary leaves for Montana.  Once she arrives and they marry, readers learn about their budding relationship that goes beyond the help-wife Travis intended and how they manage their newly formed family.  Also a key story line is that of Travis looking for the person responsible for his brother and sister-in-law's tragic car crash.

This novel was okay.  The story line was essentially a modern day rehash of Jeanette Oke's Love Comes Softly (thus the title of this novel; morning just happen to be when many important things happen).  And Macomber used all the stereotypical librarian descriptions, which all of us at JCL should know are not always true!
