This is a great story and could not quit listening. The characters were great and real. I laughed and cried.
Lots of people seem to love this book - it depends on your taste. To me the characters were embarrassingly simple and predictable. How can a rich, spoiled white woman in 1875 think like a modern, liberal woman? The book would have made more sense if May started out with some of the attitudes of her class and upbringing, then over time learned that she was being biased and unfair. This book will not challenge you to think. The reader was good, doing her best with poor material. I wish Audible had a category for chick lit. I would like some kind of way to avoid these books, other people must be searching for them. Occasionally I buy one by mistake. It was a waste of a credit.
the story captured my interest and kept me listening. okay, so its a bit far fetched at times but it is supposed to be entertainment, and if you read it as such, it was a good book.
I enjoyed the book on a plot level to some degree but found the smattering of female characters underdeveloped and trite. I wouldn't recommend this one.
I absolutely loved this book, I cryed, laughed, and got my cherokee dander up. My love for history was satisfied, and I am actually going to read again. The Woman on both sides were strong and the type of women it took to live out west. Again, I loved the book and recommened it to all my friends.
