New York Times Bestseller
Wildly popular award-winning blogger, accidental ranch wife, and #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Pioneer Woman Cooks, Ree Drummond (aka The Pioneer Woman) tells the true story of her storybook romance that led her from the Los Angeles glitter to a cattle ranch in rural Oklahoma, and into the arms of her real-life Marlboro Man.
Drummond, a blogger and best-selling author of The Pioneer Woman Cooks, turns her popular blog chronicling her improbable city-girl-meets-rugged-cowboy saga into an affecting new memoir. Drummond deftly describes what happens when life takes a U-turn, taking readers from her chaste but steamy courtship with "Marlboro Man," to their subsequent wedding and Australian honeymoon, and into the first year of their marriage where the two decamped to Marlboro Man's isolated ranch (Drummond had been en route to a new life in Chicago when she met him). What emerges is a charming and romantic yet realistic tale of the forces that can test a new relationship no matter how good it is. She presents a sometimes riotously funny, always strikingly real tale of love and life. Drummond is intensely likable and writes with the facile confidence of one who clearly knows herself well. Plenty of surprises lie along the way, such as her parents' divorce and an immediate pregnancy following the nuptials. She's sure to have readers in tears and in stitches as they share her adventure. In a word: delightful. Includes several recipes.

Loved this book. Couldn’t put it down. Need a follow-up with the rest of the children and her journey to The Pioneer Woman show.
I loved this book so much that I couldn't put it down! I told my sisters, friends and coworkers all to read it! It's absolutely precious and contains so many important life lessons!
Well written book!!! I love watching her on Food Network and this book made her as someone that could live right next door (other than the fact she is out in the middle of nowhere). As a fellow Okie and as a woman I can relate to so many of the things that happened on her journey yet so many things were incredible to see the way she adjusted. I found myself wanting to read more at the end. A must read if you are a fan of The Pioneer Woman, this will make you a fan of Ree Drummond.
