The audio version is a pleasure to lesson to yet reading the book is always a personal trip into the past. Voices are always different than you had imagined them!
Freedom is sometimes not what you thought it was!
Well written from the perspective of a strong female.
Both did an excellent job of reading and performing.
I wish I could have read it all in one setting...the read was so engaging.
This was one of my favorite audible purchases.
Mae's story was incredible. How could she not be the favorite character?
Laura did a wonderful job bringing the characters to life. Nice flow and excellent job in accents.
terrible narration, the sample listen page was a male the book itself was a female just awful felt audible misled with this one
Historical. Fascinating. Captivating.
Both made the story come alive.
The train ride to the west.
I would recommend this book.
Writer, retired now 11 years and living at the beach, writing, golfing, enjoying my "second act."
After a few chapters, or, once the characters all get together and embark on their journey, this reads more like history than fiction. Never heard of this author before, but he tells a spell binding (fictionalized) account of white women who in 1875 volunteer to travel into the wild west to intermarry with native Americans/Indians, at the direction of Pres Ulysses S. Grant. Had me in tears at the end, such is the author's power to draw me in.
Page-turner, humorous, sad
Totally opposite of what I expected after reading "Empire of the Summer Moon"
When the squaws made their own sauna lodge.
A second chance for Mae Dodd
Yes. I really like the imagery and the story.
The fact that I could identify with a woman from so long ago.
I tend to skip ahead when I am reading a book but the way it was read was very entertaining and kept me engaged.
