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.Read more ›
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.
Thank you for sharing such amazing and detailed stories!
I look forward to the next one I will read by this quite wonderful author!
Now I know more how the history of the Sooner term was derived.
