This book is obviously geared to an adult audience but in my opinion the writing lends itself more towards a teen audience. Choppy and without a good flow. I picked it up and put it down several times.

The hero Casey Tremayne was a good choice. He shows that a person can change for the better even after having made poor decisions in the past. However I did not care for the heroine Charity at all. She was judgmental and unlike her name, didn't show charity to anyone unless they fit her standards.

I really enjoyed this book. Christian historical fiction. A well thought out storyline without being overly preachy or too bogged down in historical facts. Believable characters. Near the end, what you were routing for was not necessarily the obvious. For me, this was a real page turner.

ANGEL TRAIN is part of the Wagon Wheel series by Gilbert Morris. And though I enjoyed it, many parts of the book seems predictable and similar to the other stories in the series.
The plight of the small Pennsylvania community called Pilgrim’s Way has fallen on hard times. With the coal mine so many of the countrymen depend on closing, they feel desperate to find a solution. When Charity Morgan hears of the free land being offered in Oregon, she feels she has found that solution. The only problem

Loved It!

This was historical fiction, romance, and extremely Christian. What more could you want! Loved it. It is part of a set and it does have closure. Great!

I really love the fact that Gilbert Morris tries to find a way to tie different characters into each of the different series of his books! This book took a couple of chapters to grab my interest, but once it did it was very hard to put down!
Progressivly worse. I keep hoping that they'll get better and they don't. I like Joelle's Secret but not this or the other two so well.
Good book but didn't have the detailed storyline that many of his do. Wonder if he is cranking them out too fast now?
