Here's 5+ hours of my time that I'll never get back. Its unfortunate because I have enjoyed the other books in this series by Ms Thompson, but the narrator is simply terrible. Not everyone who lives in the West speaks as though they are from Texas, in fact most don't so why the residents of the Last Chance Ranch in WYOMING sounded like a b-western movie escapes me. Then she kept mispronouncing Shoshone and Tetons and it was all I could do to finish this book. Save your credits or money and skip over this one and enjoy the others in this series.

Some of Our Favorites

Surprisingly contemporary

There is so much rich description of a now-vanished but still relevant world, that the listener walks away more educated (while also a little romanced).

Simply brilliant

This listen will make you change the way you think about everything.

Think Steve Jobs was a tough boss?

Lisa Brennan-Jobs' gorgeous memoir gave me goosebumps as she described what it’s like to love and seek approval from one of the world’s most notoriously withholding personalities.

Historical fiction at its best

I wish I could write something as genius as this story. It’s a long one, and it’s a deep dive, but it is so masterfully crafted and engrossing that it goes by a lot quicker than you’d think.
