About the Book
The Long Trail Home is third in a six-book series about four generations of the Morgan family living, fighting, and thriving amidst a turbulent Texas history spanning from 1845 to 1896. Although a series, each book can be read on its own.When Riley Morgan returns home after fighting in the War Between the States, he is excited to see his parents and fiancee again. But he soon learns that his parents are dead and the woman he loved is married. He 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. When a greedy man tries to close the school, Riley and Annie band together to fight him and fall in love.But when Riley learns the truth about Annie, he packs and prepares to leave the school that has become his home and the woman who has thawed his heart. Will he change his mind and find the love he craves' Or will stubbornness deprive him from the woman he needs' Through painful circumstances, Riley and Annie learn that the loving and sovereign hand of God cannot be thwarted.(Goodreads)
I have almost read this entire series (out of order) but I enjoy reading about the Morgan family. This book is no exception and I think it is another winner! While Annie is pretending to be blind, Riley is healing from recent news since coming back from the war. Of course the author adds a twist and includes an enemy that threatens to destroy everything they hold dear. I really liked the background story to Annie's character and how she changes throughout the book. God becomes an important person in her life even while she is in the middle of a lie that changes her life forever. The ending is not surprising but it is a fun western type of read.
I highly recommend this book and the rest of the series to anyone who likes Old West family stories.
Also, not all of the books are by the same author which makes this a unique set of books!
