    1. Find the enhanced version of this and other reviews at: flashlightcommentary.Every series has one. The installment that just isn't on par with the rest. I want to be clear and say this is not a bad book. It is as well-written and endearing as the two preceding novels but the truth is I simply didn't enjoy this one as much as I did the others. Where Lone Star Trail featured the wave of German immigration in the mid 1800s and Captive Trail focused on the plight of an Indian hostage, Long Trail Hom [...]

    5. Long Trail Home is the third in the Texas Trails series which follows the Morgan family through different generations. I didn't feel that it added much historical and emotional appeal as the other two and it would serve better as a stand alone novel.This inspirational romance follows Riley Morgan as he journey home from the Civil War.

    10. LONG TRAIL HOME is the third book in the Texas Trails - A Morgan Family series (written by three different authors), but it easily stands alone. In fact, I read the series completely out of order, and it didn't seem to make a difference. I felt really sorry for Riley, going through the horrors of the war, and then coming home to discover his whole family is dead and his future destroyed. I also felt for Annie who believed she had to lie in order to live at the school of the blind and deceive peo [...]

    11. This review is also posted on Book by Book.Following Darlene Franklin’s and Susan Page Davis’ contributions to the Texas Trails series (respectively, Lone Star Trail and Captive Trail), Vickie McDonough successfully adds Long Trail Home. Telling the story of Riley Morgan as he returns from war and changing the scenery a bit by taking place in the town of Waco, Texas, this novel is equally as enjoyable as the previous two novels. As the characters learn to embrace the possibilities of the fut [...]

    12. This is the third book in this series by three authors. This book is set just after the civil war and is a good read. Riley has arrived back home to find his parents are dead and his girlfriend had married another man. He's devastated and not sure what to do. Meanwhile Annie had been living in the Wilcox School for the blind and is finally in a home where she is loved and wanted. I love how we see the continuing Morgan saga but also that the book can be read alone without the reader being confus [...]

    13. A young man returns from the Civil War to find his parents dead and his fiance married to another man. The local blind school allows him to board on their premises, and soon he begins to fall for one of the blind students. But Annie carries a secret that could make him hate her if she tells him. This story tells of the power of love and forgiveness, and that the truth does indeed set you free. I really enjoyed this book, but not as much as the first two. It focuses almost entirely on the romance [...]

    14. LONG TRAIL HOME:THE TEXAS TRAILS SERIES by Vicki McDonough is an exciting inspirationnal western romace set in 1865 Texas. It is the 3rd in “Texas Trails”series,but can be read as a stand alone.See, Lone Star Trail (The Texas Trail Series)by Darlene Franklin and Captive Trail (The Texas Trail Series) by Susan Page Page Davis. (“A Morgan Family” Series). This book was very interesting. You could hardly wait to see what was happening in the next chapter. I enjoyed this book and would recom [...]

    15. My daughter (12) and I are loving this series! Even though we are reading them all out of order so it is taking some figuring out, but I get them when and where I can.This book stood strong right along with the others. It has a troubled hero running from God and a confused, beautiful, young woman who bowls him over and helps bring him back to God even though she was the one searching.I gave this book only 4 stars because I found it too big of a stretch that a girl could fool a whole town AND the [...]

    16. When Annie Sheffield is thirteen, her life goes from bad to worse when her father abandons her in Waco, Texas. With nowhere else to go, she pretends to be blind in order to have a home at the Wilcox School for Blind Children. Several years later, her peaceful life is rocked when a returning Civil War veteran, Riley Morgan, takes a job as handyman at the school. Annie is drawn to him, but cannot reveal the fact that she’s sighted or she’ll have to leave the only real home she’s ever known. [...]

    17. This was a sweet, enjoyable story. It alternated between the viewpoints of Annie, Riley, and the headmistress Laura. Each are struggling with fears and obstacles, but lean on each other for strength. I did find it hard to believe that Riley couldn't figure out that Annie was not blind. There also seemed to be an easy solution to Annie's dilemma- why couldn't Laura feed and board her in exchange for her work at the home- without the pretense of blindness? I liked the setting of a school for blind [...]

    18. Loved this book. I rarely rate a book a 5 but I guess everyone has their scale. However, a 4 is really high on my list. I wish there was a way to give 4.5 stars! That's what I would give this one. I LOVED the Gospel message delivered clearly AND COMPLETELY. So often an author will take you to the trough but not show you how to drink. This author was very clear. I enjoyed this one all around. Nice story, not too heavy, and just enough of everything.

    19. In her usual style of fine writing, Vickie McDonough once again comes out with another winner. I love Vickie's style of writing. The characters are well developed and she delves deep into what makes them tick. She touches on sensitive issues and handles them with the grace. It's a moving story that keeps you pulling for both the hero and heroine to be able to overcome the obstacles in their lives and the issues that keep them apart. I highly recommend Long Trail Home.

    20. I thought that this was a really good historical romance, with a nice dose of religious undertones. I enjoyed reading about the struggles each of the characters went through. I liked how the book helped both Annie and Riley with forgiving themselves, finding God and telling the truth (to ones self or someone else). Very nicely written.

    21. 'Long Trail Home' is a heartwarming read that I thoroughly enjoyed. This is the third book in the Texas Trails six book series. I've read four of the series so far, not in order, and have enjoyed them all. This one is set along the Brazos River in Waco, Texas following the end of the Civil War.

    22. The Long Trail Home is a complex, multi layered novel. A charming cast of characters and various subplots quickly engage the reader. To read this review in its entirety, please visit bookreviewsandmorebykathy/

    23. I loved this book. The setting is true to the time period and Texas. The characters were living, breathing individuals. Vickie developed them really well. And the plot of the story had some new twists that I found intriguing.

    24. Great read! A fun, engaging story with an interesting twist. I love this author, and look forward to reading more from her.
