The Long Trail Home


Fortunes of the Black Hills series, book 3

1 in stock (can be backordered)


This third in the Fortunes of the Black Hills Christian family saga novels, a story of redemption, forgiveness and restoration. Sam Fortune discovers the only way to escape the consequences of the past: face the people left behind.

“I told you this wouldn’t work, Lord. The day I got out of prison, I said it wouldn’t work. …I’ve played it straight. I haven’t broken one law…And what do I have? Dirt in my throat, holes in my socks, and sore feet. It’s just not workin’. If you bend a stick long enough, it can’t ever straighten out.”

War Changes People

For the Christian family saga story of the Fortune family of Coryell County, Texas, the changes were drastic. The ranch lost, mother and twin daughters gone, the family drifted north to the Black Hills. That is, all except Samuel, the middle son, who headed for Indian Territory that would one day be Oklahoma. Here he settled into a a life of reprisal against any and and all that he felt had wronged him or his family. That meant an outlaw life of robbing banks, trains and freight companies.

The Prodigal

But God never gives up on one of His own … nor does Brazos Fortune, Samuel’s father. Having been released from prison, and on the run from former partners who now accuse him of turning on them, Sam finds himself broke and on foot in the wild country of western Indian Territory. Finally, he trails toward the Black Hills to find out why his father’s favorite gun was mailed to him. With blazing action and heart warming humor, this is a story of God’s grace and family loyalty.

The Long Trail Home is not just a Christian family saga story of a family reunion, but one of a heavenly reunion. It’s a demonstration of God’s grace and His love for guilty sinners in defiance of what they deserve.
