Editorial Reviews

Review


"Long grabs her readers by the heart strings. She tugs the strings with a tale of romance and mystery. In her first novel, a page-turner, Long doesn't release her readers until the very end."

This is a story about three young people name Jess, Deek and Missy whose parents had been killed in a car accident. Their mother’s family wanted nothing to do with the kids and there was only one person on their father’s side who was still alive. Uncle Fred was more than willing to welcome them into his home in Oklahoma, but the kids weren't too excited about living on a ranch. Uncle Fred said they belonged with him now, that they were family, so they packed up their belongings and drove to Oklahoma.

Before arriving at Uncle Fred’s ranch Fred had been severely beaten and was in a coma in the hospital. It was unknown if he would survive. His neighbor and friend Emma stood over him worrying about the children that were coming to live with him. The only thing she could do would be to take them in and make them comfortable until Fred was well again, hopefully.

There were a lot for strange things happening in town of Chickasha and on the ranches; animals being killed, fires being started and people being beaten or killed. The towns folk, lots of them were of Indian decent; Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek and Seminole tribes known as the Five Civilized Tribes, so naturally there was a lot of Indian heritage and beliefs to be shared.

Something was definitely stirring and it wasn't good! At Uncle Fred’s ranch Jess met Daniel and he told her he’d been assigned to take her to Emma’s Ranch. They didn't hit it off to well at the beginning but he though Jess was pretty amazing.

Afterwards, things began to ramp up and get more mysterious. Looks like there was trouble that had to do with the history of the town and it's ancestors. You need to pick up this mystery and read it for yourself! Kathryn Long did an excellent job writing it and I really love The Vision and The Prayer at the end, what a great closure!

Format: Paperback
Oklahoma's Gold is an attempt to combine a fast-moving thriller, a romance novel, and Native American spirituality. The spirituality works.
The book gets off to a fast enough start, when 19/20-year-old Jessica is left with her 14-year-old twin sibs and no money following the car-crash death of their parents. Uncle Fred in Oklahoma is the only family ready to help her and by the time Jess can get to Oklahoma, Fred is lying unconscious in a hospital, the victim of a mysterious beating.
From here the tale flattens out. Local ranchers suffer clearly induced mishaps, Jess and others (including Daniel, her love interest) are physically assaulted, more subtle attempts are made on their lives (and Fred stays unconscious, his attacker a mystery) but all this is compartmentalized and instead of serving as building blocks for the plot, the characters plod on as though nothing had happened. This just annoys the reader who, unlike the characters, knows that something is rotten but can't do anything about it.
Character credibility is nil. They lack depth and tend to move like puppets, failing to bring the story to life.
Oh, and exactly what were the bad guys after? That was never made quite clear......

Life in a new small town. Crime and murder. Unexplained happenings from years ago. An ending with surprise twist. Two siblings seemed to have disappeared after the first couple chapters. Not sure why but felt some of the story was lost with them.

My type of story, I just love to read about everything and this had it all. Love the backdrop of the rustic town, small with Native American influence.

Entertaining story, a change from what I usually read. Seems there may be some history involved, but since I'm no historian, how would I know
