    For Clara Bixby, brokering mail-order brides is a golden business opportunity - and a desperately needed chance to start again. If she can help New York women find husbands in a far-off Nebraska town, she can build an independent new life away from her own loss and grief. Clara’s ambitions are shared by two other women, who are also willing to take any risk. Quiet immigrant Elsa hopes to escape her life of servitude and at last shape her own destiny. And Rowena, the willful, impoverished heiress, jumps at the chance to marry a humble stranger and repay a heartbreaking debt.

    What did you love best about In Need of a Good Wife?

    Thought this was a great listen, easy to pick up again. I noticed some other reviews were not so high, and I'm surprised. Ok, it's not a Jane Austen novel (whom I also enjoy), but it is well written and an interesting subject matter, if a little fairy-talish at times. Also, I am an easy sell for a period novel.


    Have you listened to any of Kirsten Potter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First time listening to this reader. Overall, very good performance.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The "Elsa" character was my favorite storyline.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank God I finally figured out how to get my Audible purchases onto my Ipod. I've been impotently looking at this book in my "library" for months.
