Book Description

On a spring day in 1889 Corrine Greslin vowed that she would never again be beholden to any man. She’d build a home on her own land, land that she would stake out in the Oklahoma Land Rush. And, more than anything, she wanted to do it alone.

When Lee Highland rode up beside her she refused to be swayed by his confident style and persistent ways. Corrine’s heart had been broken too many times to be easily healed by Lee’s carefree attitude.

A man is only as good as his word and Corrine Greslin would hold Lee Highland to his.

I really did love this story, and I wanted to give it 5 stars but I couldn't. But with a little editing it could be a five star, it was that good. The descriptions were outstanding and I could see it all in my mind. I liked the twist and turns that made it less predictable.

*****SPOILER ALERT*****

What I didn't like.....
When she went to get her stove and household goods from her old cabin they ran into her 3 best friends. They were male, in that time extra I just don't think that was realistic. Also that they gave her glass windows for her new home on the sly. They would have been very expensive in that day and so I can't see them being made as a gift by 3 male friends. Plus to load up a stove that big would have taken more than them to lift it in the wagon. Plus they had room for all her other furniture... bed, table, chairs... anything else in the house, plus hide quite a number of glass windows. Just not very realistic.

The other part that bothered me was the fact that she announced she was pregnant 1-2 days after her wedding night because she had the symptoms. Now let's look back... she was born and raised without the benefit of having a mother around. Her father was such a bad and mean drunk that her and her brother left when they were quite young. Who would have talked to here about these facts of life in such details? Fast forward to after she met up with the guy she shackled up with. He wasn't a real winner either, she went hungry from time to time. So she could have missed her monthly just because of poor nutrition. Just how did she know then when she was pregnant. She wasn't looking for it to happen so she wouldn't have watched for signs. Chances are when her belly grew round and when she missed her monthly she wondered.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read June 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the third book I've read by this author and I think it's the best. The characters were realistic and likable, although at times Lee had the patience of ten men. At first you might think that Corinne was standoffish and mean but considering her history with men close to her, it all made sense. What I really liked was that she came to figure out her weaknesses on her own and did something about them.

The historical aspect of the land rush was well done and you could almost feel the pioneering spirit that Corinne was living. The desperation of missing out or the joy of getting your own land was shown how hard it could be to live a dream.

The animals added so much. I caught myself smiling every time I read about the little dog in the saddle. You could feel the connection she had with him and her horse. I'm not sure of the validity of a woman running the rush alone as she did, but this story was very entertaining. The worst part was I couldn't stop thinking about a warm piece of fresh apple pie.

5.0 out of 5 stars *Highly Recommended and Very Satisfying! December 31, 2014

This is the second book I've read by Nanette Kinslow - and it didn't disappoint! I love that she thinks about every little detail and ties up the strings of the stories she weaves. It's very satisfying to feel as if you've been given the complete story and can feel as if the new friends you have made will continue their hard won happiness together.
Thank you for sharing such amazing and detailed stories!
I look forward to the next one I will read by this quite wonderful author!

3.0 out of 5 stars half-way read June 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another story that I enjoyed but only got half-way through. I'm not big into the Old West stories, but this one actually had a strong female character so I enjoyed her. The writing wasn't compelling enough to keep me spell bound, not a lot of interaction and dialogue, but it was good enough for me to maybe finish the story some day.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Savory Delight May 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Who doesn't love pie? This story is much like a delicious pie - tender and sweet, fragile and satisfying. The characters are well developed and believable. The storyline does not bog down. It's a good, satisfying read much like a nice, rich pie leaving one smiling but sad that it's gone.

4.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed this book January 22, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. Nannette Kinslow writes a story that put's you there. There were a few times I wanted to shake Corinne, though. She was so blinded by her past that she couldn't see what was right in front of her. only have two complaints, the bigest one is at the end when she "just knew she was pregnant," after two days. In two day's time, she wouldn't have any symtems. the second was when they went back for her stove. There's no way 2 horses could have pulled the weight of that stove, all of her other furnature and belongings, and three heavy windows the distance they had to go. I guess there is a third. I kept wondering right from the begining of the time she got her land,how she was going to transport her pies across the river that always gave them a hard time crossing. That being said, I really enjoued Nanette's writing and story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Is Forever for Corrine and Lee January 25, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is one of the sweetest stories. The heroine is such a real character and her determination and hard work ethic is so inspiring. I loved how each of the character's story made it feel real to be part of one of the major land rushes.

Now I know more how the history of the Sooner term was derived.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read for a winter's day January 16, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading about Corrine and Lee and thought it a beautiful love story. The characters were real and believable. The history was basic and fit the characters. The love scenes were well written without being too graphic, which I appreciate. Look forward to reading your future stories.
