This was a great western romance. It is a lot of fun reading about how the land runs worked. The most famous one was the first but it is nice to see how each was done differently. Sarah and Luke were great friends. This made Luke want marriage whereas Sarah was scared. I received this book from Barbour for a fair and honest opinion. I did not want to put this book down.
When Sarah Worley rejects Luke McNeil s proposal to pursue property in the Oklahoma Territory land lottery in 1901, the ranch hand pulls up stakes and goes after her.But he s the last person she wants to see. The land lottery gives Sarah the chance to realize her dream of independence and a home of her own. But with it comes challenges she never considered. When her dream becomes a nightmare, she must decide whether to stay on her land or give up and return to the life she left.
