    A good historical

    She was a little girl when the Comanches stole her from her white family. She has lived with the Comanches for years but a deep part of her has vague memories of her white family that her soul clings to. When a Comanche warrior, she doesn't wish to marry, leaves a dowry of six horses at her family's teepee, she uses one of those horses to run away from her village back to the white world she was taken from. When her horse has an accident, she's left with an injured foot, no horse and complete exhaustion. Ned Bright is a driver for the Butterfield Overland Mail Company. Along with the mail they carry a few passengers. On one of the first runs they make, they take two nuns to their mission station. While in route they come upon a woman who's practically deal. She appears white but dressed in Comanche clothing. The nuns take her to the mission station to heal. Ned searches for the true identity of Taabe Waipu and finally finds out who she is and wants to bring her family together again. Her Comanche warrior, however, wants her back and will stop at nothing to get her. Will he be successful? I enjoyed Captive Trail. It was one of those stories that grows on you as you read it. I enjoyed meeting all the characters. Taabe Waipu is a woman of great strength and as I was reading I was wondering if I would have been as strong she. I wasn't sure I was going to like Ned in the beginning but he really was a great guy. I would say this story is more of a historical than a romance although there is a touch of romance in it along with a bit of mystery. It's not what I would consider a fast paced story but toward the very end it became pretty intense and the ending was great! How the Lord can get us through impossible situations if we trust Him was the message I walked away with. I did feel the characters were well drawn and that the story was true to it's time period. This is book 2 in the Morgan Family Series but can be read as a stand-alone. A thank you goes to the publisher for providing this complimentary copy for my review through Netgalley.

    a wonderful romantic suspense

    As a little child she was abducted from her family and forced to become a Numinu Comanche or starve. Years later in 1857 North Central Texas, Peca offers the insultingly low six horses to her adopted parents to make Taabe Waipu his squaw. Taabe fears Peca so instead flees hoping to find her white family. Instead she falls when her horse stepped into a hole.

    Butterfield Overland Mail Company owner driver Ned Bright sees the body of a Comanche female who is clearly white. With two Sisters on board, he still stops to pick her up and take her to Fort Chadbourne. The two nuns take Taabe to their mission where she heals from dehydration and a broken ankle. As she relearns to speak English, Taabe and Ned fall in love, but he feels he owes her finding out who her family is even as the Comanche attack the Ursuline Mission.

    The second Morgan family Americana tale (see Darlene Franklin's opener, The Lone Star Trail) is a wonderful romantic suspense starring a strong cast that brings to life Antebellum Texas. Character driven, still the story line is loaded with action. However, although Ned is too heroic, the heroine owns the tale as her struggles to readapt are skillfully described as a key element in a warm Texas romance.

    Never a dull moment. This is a good clean book that has a setting at a mission run by nuns. It' s a great read at 213 pages.
