This is the first book I’ve read by Darlene Franklin. The Lone Star Trail is book one in the Texas Trails Morgan Family series. I wanted to start at the beginning to see if I should read the rest of the series. I wasn’t that happy with Lone Star Trail. It is a fine story, but for me just lacked excitement until the very end where it got really good. I just didn’t think the story flowed together well enough. I love western books and the hardships that came with being some of the first people in the West, but this book just didn’t get it for me.
What I did like about the book is the character that played the mother Mrs. Morgan. She was a strong woman who did the right thing and told her children just what she believed. I liked the settings and description of the area and homes also.
I don’t think I will read anymore of Darlene Franklin’s books unless she has a super good one. This is an O.K. book and you may love it.
