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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

It was a good story and I enjoyed it. However, no one knows they are pregnant a couple days later. Most of the time the egg hasn't even been fertilized yet so that part was very unbelievable. Also Lee acted surprised when he saw the pie pan she used to make his pie when he was commenting on the same pie pan a day ago.

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.

I enjoyed reading this book straight through. Set in the early stages of the making of the U.S. I felt the timing was excellent throughout the book. It built up the story coming to a gratifying ending. No graphic sex, which is always nice!
