Publisher's Summary

Set against four tumultuous decades of American history, For Richer, for Poorer is a spellbinding saga of betrayal and love...and one woman’s quest for revenge. The day a brutal massacre turns Bartonville into a battlefield, Kitty is living with her father in a shack owned by the town’s most powerful family. When the bloodshed is over, the boy Kitty loves lies fatally wounded. But their child will live on. And Tyrone Duncannon’s death will be avenged.

For Richer, for Poorer is the story of Kitty Kellogg Stokes, born into a hardscrabble life in small-town Pennsylvania, who rose to become the most influential woman in the political circles of New York and Washington, DC. When Kitty marries John Stokes, Jr., she bears him two sons. So begins a deception that will continue for decades and test the limits of a woman’s desire for revenge - and a mother’s love.

Excellent story perfectly narrated highly recommended

I came across the book by chance and after listening to the sample, I was drawn into the story and just had too have more.
Joyce Feurring should be nominated for her narration, she was so enticing in the way her intonation draws you into the next chapters, one after the other, I just couldn’t put it down.
An absolutely brilliant story of revenge that travels in the not so obvious path. You can work a little out at the very end but it’s just perfect for this book. Overall the literary standard excellent, without cliches and predictable text. It’s dialogue helps you to paint the pictures in your own mind without being overly descriptive, so there’s room for your imagination.
An excellent read!!
