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.

Good until the ending

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

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.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Very disappointing - no real resolution to the story. It felt like the author ran out of steam and just ended the book.

Was Maud's Line worth the listening time?

Yes - until the ending.
