Part epic of Texas, part classic coming-of-age story, part unflinching portrait of the bloody price of power, The Son is an utterly transporting novel that maps the legacy of violence in the American West through the lives of the McCulloughs, an ambitious family as resilient and dangerous as the land they claim. Love, honour, children are sacrificed in the name of ambition, as the family becomes one of the richest powers in Texas, a dynasty of unsurpassed wealth and privilege.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I really enjoyed this book (so much I have written my first review). The narration was fantastic and so was the story. I will defiantly listen to it again in a coupe of months.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did
