The Unplowed Sky A Novel Jeanne Williams This story is dedicated with. Thank goodness, in the sixties, I did record considerable information from my father, Guy E. Kreie, who plowed virgin prairie near Dodge City when he was a boy and later grew wheat with my maternal grandparents and uncles near Elkhart, Kansas. I also have some treasured material from my mother’s mother, Susanna Parks Salmon, and I wrote the book in view of a photo of my mother driving a tractor and my father on a header with my uncles and grandfather.

The Unplowed Sky book. I always enjoy Jeanne Williams. This one has a lot of ties to my hometown of Dodge City. It's about harvest crews that travel around Kansas in the early 20th century.

It’s ripe and ready! me to show her, Hallie wondered whether love would ever ripen for them. But that wistful thought was overwhelmed by wonderment as she looked at the grain, tiny yet so life-givingly important.

I received this book at no charge from Amazon for my Kindle. It was a worthy read. Thank you to the author for generously providing this book free of charge.

I learned some history. It was a good love story. Lots of interesting characters. The ending was somewhat anticlimactic. Worth the time.

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre:  Romance, Literary Fiction 

This is one of those books I loved and yet hated at times, one that’s hard to review without feeling I’m being nit picky. 

 I loved the setting, the feeling I was there with Hallie and Jackie, feeling the struggle, feeling “in” the time period with them – and I know nothing of America in practical terms only through books, but whether its authentic or not it felt very, very real to me. The bigotry, the bias, the two faced politics and the dreaded KKK, something that still pervades to this day in places :-(
 
I liked Hallie and Jackie and yet...got so cross with her infatuation for Garth. He was sullen and rude to her right from the start. Yes he’s had a bad experience with women – well one anyway, and he does have a great responsibility, but he took it out too strongly on Hallie. He did warm a bit, but I never was quite convinced of anything real between them, and the ending didn’t feel as satisfactory as it would if I really felt the love, the caring and tenderness.
I liked Rory, but didn’t really understand his actions towards the end, not the ultimate big drama bit, but why he did what he knew would hurt Garth so much.
 The other characters were great, whether “good” or not so good, even the downright selfish and two faced Raford had a strong character part and felt very genuine.

I felt the plot was a little slow paced for me, i did enjoy the story but at times it dragged, and I felt it was slow going and not much happening. I guess overall it’s one I’m glad I read, loved the writing style, enjoyed as a historical novel more than a romance, but wouldn’t reread.
 
Stars: three, a mixed read for me.

This is a down-to-earth piece of historical fiction about a young woman and the three men that want her. Occurring in the 1920s, it is the story of nineteen-year old orphan Hallie Meredith trying to make ends meet while taking care of her younger half-brother Jackie.

Eventually, she is hired on to help the cook while working for a threshing crew. Over the course of days that turn into weeks, then months, the crew becomes her family. Day-to-day hardships become a reality but also make her a stronger person.

Two men become somewhat obsessed with her but the one she wants the most keeps his distance. Both heartwarming and heart-wrenching, this light romance keeps throwing the reader curveballs. There are many historical references weaved within the storyline. Those that will love this story the most will appreciate a clean romance with a strong dose of political history. Where else can you find a kitten living in a guy's beard?

My , Dad and his family, homestead in ND. This is a great story of their very hard times. They moved there in 1903 and lost the Ranch in the mid-thirties....Dust-Bowl and the Crash of '29...This is a good remainder of these hard years...
