Reviewing "Long Trail Home" by Vickie McDonough

"Long Trail Home" by Vickie McDonough is the third book in the Texas Trails series and I found it to be a very sweet story.  I have enjoyed all of the books in this series and although the first three are all written by different authors, they have managed to carry a unified voice throughout each book.  The characters are likeable and relatable and the author's writing style catches the reader's interest from the beginning.  Once I had a block of time to read, I flew through the book because I was so interested to find out how it ended.
There are several different themes in the book which will attract a wide array of readers. It's a Christian historical fiction novel which takes place in the American Frontier, featuring romance, adventure, hardship and hope.  Here is a short summary from the publisher:

When Riley Morgan returns home after fighting in the War Between the States, he is excited to see his parents and fiancée again. But he soon learns that his parents are gone and the woman he loved is married.
Riley takes a job at the Wilcox School for the blind just to get by. He keeps his heart closed off but a pretty blind woman, Annie, threatens to steal it.
Through painful circumstances, Riley and Annie learn that the loving and sovereign hand of God cannot be thwarted.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the genres I listed above and is looking for a good summer read.   I would also recommend the first two books in the Texas Trails series and I'm guessing the rest of the series is just as good. Go ahead and just get them all. :)
