A Cute Quick Listen
A great spanking novel. Esther is headstrong and independent. These should be traits to be treasured and nurtured, but in the 1800's on the Western Frontier, those traits can get her in big trouble.
So what's a new husband to do with his intelligent, educated, and reckless wife? Take her in hand and show her discipline.
That it's based loosely on a true story.
Odd choice for a male narrator in a novel that is told entirely from the heroine's point of view. He was good, though.
There is a niche for spanking novels, so some listeners will enjoy it and some might find it offensive.
It's a short listen, but it was cute.
