Publisher's Summary

Mary Louisa Roberts won the race of a lifetime - or so she thought. 

In competition with desperate homesteaders, ruthless land seekers, and a sheriff determined to see her fail, Mary rides out on a horse to strike her claim in the Oklahoma Land Rush of 1893. When she finally thrusts her flag into the dirt, 160 acres becomes her own. But with that claim, she risks more than she could ever imagine.

A naïve school teacher and young mother abandoned by her hard-drinking, gold-seeking husband - whom she now believes to be dead - Mary is faced with letting go of a past riddled with loss, hardship, and reminders that a woman isn't capable of surviving on her own. 

Daniel McKenzie, an illustrative journalist sent on assignment to document the race, has his own past to forget. Bound by a lost love and guilt from a haunting event in the streets of Boston, he wonders whether he will ever know happiness again. 

Will Mary's and Daniel's stubborn and independent spirits keep them mired in the past? Or will two broken hearts find forgiveness and love in the wild plains of the Midwest?

Entertaining read!!

The author did a fantastic job of telling a story of the land rush in Oklahoma. I love how the story starts with two separate life stories that eventually come together at an exciting point in the book. Very heartwarming and wee-written.
