In Need of a Good Wife

Kelly O'Connor McNees

A sweeping historical audio of 19th century America about a group of unforgettable women who seek to remake their destinies. After Clara Bixby is abandoned by her husband and fired from her job in a New York City tavern, she has nowhere to turn. Though the Civil War has ended, life remains uncertain, especially for single women. But when she reads about Destination, Nebraska–a town populated entirely by bachelors–Clara sees a golden business opportunity. She contacts the mayor with a solution: she will match single women in New York City with homesteading bachelors and bring the brides by rail across the wild frontier. This group of women–who range from an upper-class war widow to a Bavarian immigrant–embark with Clara on an epic journey across America in search of security, a new life, and the possibility of love.
