Product Details


"The three central, compelling women of In Need of a Good Wife are each, in turn, terribly lost and deeply brave. I adored them and rooted for them…I found it deliciously satisfying that the redemption I wished for each of them arrived in completely unexpected ways, taking both me and the characters by surprise."–Katrina Kittle, author of The Blessings of the Animals

"With graceful prose and historical settings that shine with vitality, In Need of a Good Wife is unforgettable."–Kristina Riggle, author of Real Life and Liars

“Painting vivid images of the poverty of post-Civil War Manhattan City and the harrows of Destination, Nebraska, McNees weaves a hopeful, compelling story of love and resilience so engaging it is impossible to put down."–Robin Oliveira, author of My Name is Mary Sutter

In Need of a Good Wife is a beautifully wrought story, every page bursting with poetry and adventure.  McNees sweeps us west with such hope and excitement that we ache and rejoice, celebrate and cry.”–Susan Gregg Gilmore, author of Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen
