Riley Morgan takes a job at the Wilcox School for Blind Children in an attempt for a new life after the Civil War. By helping the children and the pretty blind woman, Annie, he begins to find renewed hope. But everyone's future at Wilcox School is disrupted when the owner dies suddenly and the school is in jeopardy of being closed by the man who stands to inherit it. Riley's remaining confidence in the future is shaken when Annie's secret is revealed and Riley attempts to make peace with God.
Doubt meets hope, and fear gives way to faith in the Morgan family."
Riley Morgan went to fight in the war after his dear younger brother, Timothy, died from a rattlesnake attack when he was younger. He comes home from the war to discover that his fiancee has married and did not even notify him. He then takes a job at the Wilcox School for Blind Children.
Trouble ensues when the owner of the school dies and his cruel nephew demands they leave.
I really enjoyed this book and all of the characters were well-written. I liked Annie's struggle with how to tell everyone she had been lying to them the whole time she had known them because she was not really blind.
I would recommend this book and I will continue reading this Texas Trails series.
So, what do you think of this book? Would you read it? Does it sound interesting? What are you currently reading?
