From the Pulitzer Prize winning author of Crimes of the Heart comes this poignant but unromanticized story of the hard lives of pioneers on the high plains of Wyoming in the 1860s.
Macon and Bess are two mail-order brides, lured to the West by the promise of new beginnings through marriage to men they've never met. While waiting for their respective husbands-to-be, one bubbling with optimism, the other mousy and plain, the two women become instant best friends.
As Abundance follows the two women through their friendship and adventures for the next 25 years, this Western epic unearths the dark underside of American mythology.

"great performance wasted on a poorly written story"
The characters were a bit shallow. The author failed to make the bond between the women as strong as she needed for the story line. I wanted to have some admiration for them but they appeared more foolish to me.
I only listened to this story all the way through because I really enjoyed listening to the reader. She gave me hope, although in the end, it was dashed by the author.
While I like the speech/delivery of those who narrated this story, the plot left much to be desired. Not worth the time to listen to the book.
