So...you're telling me I can pay people to read books to me whilst I do other things?

    Soon to be a major motion picture directed by Tommy Lee Jones, The Homesman is a devastating story of early pioneers in 1850s American West. It celebrates the ones we hear nothing of: the brave women whose hearts and minds were broken by a life of bitter hardship. A "homesman" must be found to escort a handful of them back East to a sanitarium. When none of the county’s men steps up, the job falls to Mary Bee Cuddy - ex-teacher, spinster, indomitable and resourceful.

    C. Oneal says: "Great story but the end was a huge diappointment"
    "Absorbing Listen"

    For the merits of the book, read the print reviews...(count me as one who liked the ending) As for the Audible version, Candace Thaxton's narration is flawless--to the point that I forgot that Mary Bee and Briggs were being read by the same person.
