    "This is a great piece of historical fiction, great for those who love historical fiction, I think there needs to be a bit more fact checking to verify some of these events that take place, but it is a great book otherwise."

    "I am from Oklahoma, so I'm usually quit to read anything that is set in my state. Unfortunately, Oklahoma didn't feel like a relevant choice in this story. Still an interesting book and an enjoyable read, but I felt like it could be set anywhere. Nothing in it made me feel like I was back home."
