Frank Greerson and Gregory Young have been discharged from the Army and are headed to their childhood homes. They both defied their parents in 1861 when they joined the Army. After battling southern rebels and preserving the Union of the United States of America, the two men set out to battle the Kansas Prairie and build a life together. Once they find their claim, they encounter common obstacles to life on the Kansas Prairie in 1866: Native Americans, tornadoes, wild animals, and weather.

When a prairie fire destroys their crops and takes their neighbor’s lives, Frank and Gregory are instructed to find their young son’s aunt. Faced with leaving a destroyed claim, the railroad coming through their land, and dwindling funds, Frank and Gregory must decide whether to leave the place they have worked hard to make their own or fulfill their friends’ dying wishes.

***Shelley C – NerdGirlRed’s  Review***
This is a clean YA historical romance that is set in the age of settlers heading to the West. Frank and Greg are two great characters. I wish the author had gone more into their meeting each other, the nightmares one of the men is plagued by, and maybe a more defined issue the characters must overcome. There were little things and some issues that could have been set up a little better to make the story a bit more concentrated. I really did enjoy the story, it was a quick, light read with a kind of HEA. If there was another book to follow Frank and Greg’s journey after this I would definitely read it.
