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?
