Summary

Cody couldn't be more opposite from Natalie.

When Natalie arrives in Belle Fourche with her ailing father and three wayward brothers, she’s forced to throw herself upon the mercy of her only remaining family - the Olesons - at the Broken Circle O. While her father rests, Natalie is excited to meet an ornery man with deep, gray eyes, and a missing leg. She’s certain that if he’ll agree to let her father fashion a prosthetic limb for him, the familiar work will help her father recuperate. But getting Cody Hammond to agree to anything proves more difficult than she first imagined. Will she be able to win him over before it’s too late for her father?
 

A chip on his shoulder isn't easy to bear.

Cody Hammond lives a quiet, ordered life, until one day an unfamiliar woman rushes into the bank where he works and threatens to disrupt everything. The more Natalie pushes her way into Cody's life, the more she makes him think about a past he’s worked hard to forget. He's determined to keep her away, but even his best isn't enough to scare off the enigmatic and beautiful Natalie.

There is Always Hope!

This is a really great love story, beautifully written by Kari Trumbo as a stand-alone with wonderful and very believable characters and of course, a happily ever-after.
In addition, J. Scott Bennett has narrated the audiobook and he makes each character come alive with his interesting voices which make the book a pleasure to listen to.
I requested a copy and listened to the audio version and my voluntary and unbiased review is above.

I loved this unique story about the family making limbs for the soldiers who lost them during the war.  This is an amazing example of kindness winning.  It's just like the Bible states, "...the kindness of God leads you to repentance".  Kari truly has a gift for putting hard to love characters in a situation that softens them and soft characters become harder (stronger) because of working with that other person.

It was wonderful for the same narrator to continue this series!

Captivating And Unique

This fourth story in the Brothers Of Belle Fourche Series was captivating and unique. Cody Hammond, Eli Oleson’s brother-in-law, is a surly, gruff man who doesn’t seem to like anyone, including his own sister. He has had a tough past and has a lot of baggage to sort through, not the least of which is only having one leg. Natalie has just arrived in town with her sick father and unruly brothers looking for the Oleson ranch. When she walks up to him in the bank and speaks to him, ignoring all the other tellers, he is taken aback and intrigued. My heart went out to Cody, even through his gruffness. Natalie also had my heart right from the beginning, she was such a sweet and caring soul, even though she’d been through such tough times. This was a heartwarming and sometimes heart wrenching story and another enjoyable one to listen to. Kari Trumbo has a distinctive writing style that draws you into her stories and makes you feel as though you are living with her characters. J. Scott Bennett never ceases to amaze with his wonderful narration. I received a free copy of this audiobook and have voluntarily provided an unbiased review.

Saved by Grace

Saved by Grace by Kari Trumbo was a very fast paced book I enjoyed it as the subject matter was not a commonly talked about in the 1880s. How Natalie was able to help Cody was great. A sweet love story. Narrative was great

Let there be love

Oh how I really enjoyed this storyline. It is so unique and gave a glimpse into the past. The unfolding love of the two main characters is filled with ups and downs but where there is love there is always a way to make it work.
Scott Bennett is an amazing narrator and keeps the listener pleasantly consumed with what's going to happen next. I am so looking forward to listening to the other books in this series.
Thanks so much Scott for gifting me the code for this book.

The Whole Man

Each book is written as a standalone, but the cross-references to the shared universe and characters, while explained within, mean you'll enjoy each the more for having read its predecessor. This tale focuses on Ann's brother Cody, he of the missing limb, and some hitherto unknown cousins of the Olsons. Post Civil War advances in replacement limb technology were necessitated by the number of men who'd survived their wounds because amputation had halted gangrene. But could a false leg do more than fill Cody's empty pants leg? The female Olson cousin wants to help by making him that prosthesis. I especially liked the introduction of technical advancements as a key to unlocking the character of painfully shy Natalie. As always, narrator J. Scott Bennett's interpretations added to my enjoyment of the story.

Great story!

I did something different than normal when reading this book...I started with book #4 in the series instead of the beginning of the series. Silly me! If you were to know me, you'd know that I am a very sequential person and love to start at the beginning. I have been known a time or two to veer from my normal routine but I really love knowing all the background and little bits and pieces of a story/characters to build upon and create the whole picture. But this cover caught my eye and the title and synopsis, so I went for it. And I really enjoyed it!

I listened to the audiobook of Saved by Grace. The narrator's voice took me a little bit to get used to but it didn't take long and I was immersed in the story.

Natalie Oleson and Cody Hammond are the two main characters. They have some broken pieces to their lives. Some physical and some emotional/mental. But they're strong. They're continuing to push forward and find a way to keep working and living. Albeit, one of them is a little stubborn in finding joy, but in the end joy and peace come.

Natalie is trying to hold everything together for her family and struggling. When she meets Cody, she finds a way to help serve somebody outside of her family. He of course resists...but not for long. He can't help but feel of Natalie's goodness and beauty (inside and out). They come to work together and become friends and finally start to find healing.

I really enjoyed listening to Natalie's continued gentle attempts to help Cody. Watching his barriers and walls start to crumble and allow him to feel hope and love again was very sweet. This book piqued my interest for what the previous books in the Belle Fourche series are about. Especially since those characters were in a part of this story.

If you're looking for a book with pain and grief to hope and healing, this is a good one. Sweet and fun, with a few little mishaps here and there as well as loss, sorrow, love, and peace.

Content: Clean. Some mild moments of peril and death. This is a Christian fiction story, the characters talk about hope and healing and going to church. But it is not preachy (for those who don't prefer reading that) and well written.

Happy Reading (or in this case listening)!!!

How to love despite loss

Cody Hammond lives a lonely life as an aftermath of loss and bitter anger, and he sees no way out. Natalie is trying to keep her family together while facing her fear of losing them all. These two people come together to learn how love, hope and looking to a better future can replace the holes that anger and fear have frozen their hearts.

I was excited to hear Cody's story since he was such an interesting character in his sister's book. I really liked the fact that Kari continued to dive into the difficult relationship that Cody had with his sister, Anne, in this book. The conflict was not "magically" taken care of at the end of her story and Kari shows that inconvenient truth that families can be messy and it only through God's love that things can be helped. J. Scott Bennett lends his great narrative and characters to bring the story to life! Looking forward to book 5!

I was given this review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Probably my fav out of all this series

Although all these books have been good I enjoyed this one the most. It had a little more references to God and keeping your Faith even when it seemed hopeless. The author puts just enough reference to God that it’s nice but not overwhelming and for us Christians its a reminder of His love during our ordinary day.
A nice romance that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to my advanced preteen reader friends. The gentleman that read it did a good job changing his tone for the emotions going on

Another installment of the Oleson family

This is the 4th installment in the Oleson family series and I'm seeing a lot of similarities. Ann, the star of the last book, is a sister to Cody Hammond, the subject of this story. Cody is a man in need of healing from a painful childhood and the loss of his leg in the war. He meets Natalie Oleson, the daughter of a dying man who just happens to be a master prosthetic maker. He's taught her to make prosthetics.

I like the family and their ranch setting. The story and resolution took far longer than I'd like. They all seem to end to soon in my opinion. I'll definitely continue on with the series.

Wonderful Story

This was a great book! Natalie has such a wonderful heart and how she had to help Cody even though she did not know everything about making the prosthetic limb. I loved the ending and cannot wait to read the next story!
