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.

A Place to Call Their Own by Dean Pace-Frech is more of a story than a romance. Like a friendship love between two very close friends who are like brother's and both say they are gay, if you are expecting sex in this book, you are going to be disappointed. This is more about their struggle to fit in, in an era where they do not fit the mold of what a man should be.
Frank fought on the union side of the civil war. He wants to head west. His family would rather he didn't. He is 23 years old and they need him.
Gregory is the soldier he met in the war. And 22 years old. He wants what Frank wants to move west and start their own lives without fuss or muss.
What these two get are not what they bargained for. They are a bit naive at how things work. I did like that they were willing to brave anything to be together. This is a more quiet story but I loved it just the same.
