Publisher's Summary

Eastern Oklahoma, 1928. Eighteen-year-old Maud Nail lives with her rogue father and sensitive brother on one of the allotments parceled out by the US government to the Cherokees when their land was confiscated for Oklahoma's statehood. Maud's days are filled with hard work and simple pleasures, but often marked by violence and tragedy, a fact that she accepts with determined practicality.
Her prospects for a better life are slim, but when a newcomer with good looks and books rides down her section line, she takes notice. Soon, she finds herself facing a series of high-stakes decisions that will determine her future and those of her loved ones.

Original and engrossing

I very much enjoyed this book because it was written from a unique perspective that I previously knew nothing about, the life of a young woman living on a reservation dealing with poverty and the unique hardships of her culture and family circumstances. The characters very much came alive, and the author did a good job describing The details of the woman's life and tribulations in a way that made me want to keep turning the pages to find out how she would cope with the decisions and troubles she was facing. I would like to read more books by this author.
