ALT="Davalynn Spencer"Davalynn Spencer here, from Colorado, happy to welcome author Vickie McDonough to today’s blog.

Vickie, tell us a little about your featured book, Long Trail Home.

When a weary soldier returns from the War Between the States to discover his parents dead, his family farm in shambles, and his fiancée married, a pretty, blind woman reaches through his scarred walls, but will the secret she holds ruin all chances for a future filled with love, faith, and family? End of the Trail is the sequel to Long Trail Home.

I love the way you connected your titles. What is the primary focus of this book?

The hero’s story is about a soldier returning home after the Civil War to find all he knew has been destroyed. How does a man rebuild his life when all is gone?

Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California! Today I have the joy of interviewing best-selling, award-winning novelist Davalynn Spencer! Since Davalynn conducts many of our interviews here on the CAN blog, it’s fun to turn the tables on her! Davalynn doesn’t just write about life on the frontier—this rodeo wife/rodeo mom lives it. Plus, she’s a whole lot of fun. I hope you enjoy our chat together.
