    Description

    "An all-out women-driven, queer, transgender, multiracial takeover of the Old West...and that's exactly what Melissa Lenhardt delivers in her unapologetically badass Western, Heresy." (New York Times)

    "Lenhardt has created a bold new story where women have taken their rightful place in the narrative of the Outlaw Western genre; where wit, wisdom, and wiles could mean the difference between life and death, and where the fellowship of women bested every challenge." (Kathleen Kent)

    Margaret Parker and Hattie LaCour never intended to turn outlaw.

    After being run off their ranch by a greedy cattleman, their family is left destitute. As women alone they have few choices: marriage, lying on their backs for money, or holding a gun. For Margaret and Hattie, the choice is simple. With their small makeshift family, the gang pulls off a series of heists across the West.

    Though the newspapers refuse to give the female gang credit, their exploits don't go unnoticed. Pinkertons are on their trail, a rival male gang is determined to destroy them, and secrets among the group threaten to tear them apart. Now, Margaret and Hattie must find a way to protect their family, finish one last job, and avoid the hangman's noose.

    "Readers who relish an unusual narrative structure will enjoy this unique take on the traditional Western." (Booklist)

    Interesting

    I wanted to love this story, because it’s a pretty solid feminist western. Instead I just liked it. The characters are decent, as is the plot. The narrators weren’t great voice actors—which this story really needed—but they weren’t terrible either. It’s a solid novel, the writing isn’t too bad, but it didn’t blow me away

    This book is special & unique

    Heresy is the story of a gang of female outlaws in the old west. The women have been betrayed and robbed by the men in their lives, so they decide to claim their independence and get some revenge along the way. The characters are exciting, lovable and above all loyal to each other. The audio version of the book features seven different readers which makes it even more entertaining.

    Great job

    I want to know more. I’m confused on if this book is fiction or non-fiction. I want the whole story to be true. The readers were great. Thanks!

    Difficult to follow

    I really want to hear this story but the format used makes it to difficult for me to follow. I’d rather the author made it a story rather than patching together facts that are provided by so many characters and dates in time. I tried the book 3 times and all three times I had to to stop lost in what is really happening. I don’t want to discourage other readers as this could very well be how my brain works and others might enjoy the format and be thrilled with the book. I hope to give the author constructive information in hopes that a novel might come out of this critical information and fascinating look into the history of woman.

    LISTEN TO THIS BOOK!!!!!

    Oh my gosh, I'm stunned having just finished this book. What an entertaining and historical find!!! The characters here actually existed and the story spun around this is awesome! it's full of humor, friendships, intrigue with a fair share of grit and violence thrown in. A seriously great book!!!

    I very much enjoyed this book. It is written in an unique form.

    The beginning was confusing and I almost stoped listening. I’m so happy I completed it. I loved the stories and the characters and the points of view from each. I loved the ending part from the historical point of view. Good read!!!!

    Not bad but not great

    Was it entertaining? Sure. Did it blow me away? Not really. It was a fun read but lacked some depth. I appreciated that it is a western story centered around women and queer people, but it couldn't have had more. For as great as the subject is, this book felt more like a fluffy read than one that could really stick with you.

    The history is fantastic

    The history and the finding of the documents that lead to the writing of this story is fantastic. The fictionalization seemed to over-focus on sex. It turned it back into a man’s story so to speak. But the adventure and intrigue was still good.
