Captive Trail

I love historical fiction. My favorite author has changed for a number of reasons. The most important is that my husband loves to read Susan Page Davis' books. She is a brilliant author and a wonderful friend. I love to sit down and read her books. I'm reading a novella called Christmas at Barncastle Inn. It is very good. Her book in the first one, and so far, that is the only one I have had a chance to read.

I received two copies of Captive Trail from Moody Publishers Wednesday, for marketing. I have not had a chance to read it yet, but my husband is reading it right now. He likes it. I'm anxious to start, but it will be next week before I can.

Here is the blurb on the back:
A girl has become a woman while in captivity. A stagecoach driver longs to take her home ot the home she barely remembers.
Taabe Waipu flees her Comanche village. Somewhere in southern Texas her real family lies in the white world. For years she's struggled to keep the memories from fading.
Butterfield Overland Main Company driver Ned Bright finds a woman, exhausted and injured, lying in the road. He takes her to a mission run by Ursuline nuns. With hard work, Ned discovers Taabe Waipu's identity. He plans to unite her with her family, but the Comanche have other ideas.
Doubt meets hope,and fear gives way to faith in the Morgan family.

This is a series of six books with six different authors. They are all about the Morgan family. I look forward to reading all six.

  1. This sounds amazing! Susan is one of those authors who has brought me back to loving historical fiction, and the premise of a white captive reuniting with her former world is intriguing, to say the least. Can't wait to get my hands on this one, and can't wait to see you guys NEXT WEEK!

  2. My favorite book when I was a young girl was Zane Gray's Spirit of the Border. Ever since, I've loved books with stories from that time period and with the captive theme. I know i will love this book.

  3. Regina, Susan is a great writer of historical fiction. I am on Christmas at Barncastle Inn right now and I've read her part. It was very good. AS soon as it's finished, I'll read Captive Trail.

  4. Frances, thanks for entering. I love anything historical, well almost anything. There are a few I don't like. Susan is a wonderful author.

  5. I love historical fiction! I remember reading my first book on white women being captives, and I still find the subject interesting. Please include me in the giveaway.
