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.

A down to earth tale of love, hardships and family
It is an interesting story about a tough nature female and her living along and trying to keep the property and family relationships.
Maud - a tough female that did what she had to do
The letter she left at the end - dont want to give it away.

Good until the ending
Yes, it was well written. Very interesting to read about the Native American lives in the late 1920's in Oklahoma. But be prepared for a bit of a let down at the very end.
Very disappointing - no real resolution to the story. It felt like the author ran out of steam and just ended the book.
Yes - until the ending.
