Read from September 24 to 28, 2011 — I own a copy
My first introduction to Susan Page Davis was in her war historical Crimson Cipher, which I absolutely loved beginning to end and this Captive Trail is another one going on the keeper shelf. I was drawn in with the character of Ned and Taabe/Bille Morgan from the first few pages and it was hard to put down the entire time. I would have read it straight through if my toddler, newborn and the flu would have let me!
A story about recovery, a story about new things and life changes, a story about never giving up and relying in Christ. This was a great novel. God was there, and not shoved down your throat. Love was there, but not overtly sappy. Suspense and adventure were there in just the right amounts. I love it.
I'm excited overall about Moody, excuse me, now River North's new fiction series in these Texas Trails with various authors on different generations. I cannot wait to read others in the series.
