End of the Trail
For readers who enjoy a blend of Christian fiction with American history, this novel is a warm and comfortable fit. In End of the Trail, the latest addition to the Texas Trails/Morgan Family Series, Vickie McDonough presents two appealing young characters—Brooks Morgan and Keri Langston. Even as they vie for ownership of her murdered uncle’s ranch, the two bond in their attempts to hold onto the property against devious forces. Their friendship strengthens as the danger mounts throughout the story. Along the way, Vickie searches for the reasons behind her mother’s giving her up as a young child to be raised by her uncle—as unconventional a decision in the 1880s West as it would have been elsewhere in the country. What she discovers both shocks her and explains her mother’s desperation. A strong spiritual theme and solid family values—this book might be equally appropriate for adult and young-adult readers.
