I found the second of this trilogy to be more predictable than the first. Beside that, it kept my interest and I couldn't put it down. There are a number of bar fights, battles with the Indians, coming of age, broken hearts, baptisms, and great humor. This book had less history and focused more on the fiction story line.
The funniest scene in the book is when Clinton takes Al hunting. The most heart touching moment is when Clay is out on the porch having a moment with God.

This book was good, but was drug out way too much. It started very boring, but got better about the middle of the book. The book tries to cover a 15-year time window, and it gets a little hard to follow as the author jumps around to each of the 10 or so main characters without changing chapters or breaking the page. Overall, the book was good, despite its downsides. It does leave a cliff-hanger ending to start the next book, though.

Second of the three book series. Was a great read. I throughly enjoyed this series am moving on to the third and fine book The Eyes of Texas.
First series I have read by this author and it was very enjoyable will most likely read some of the other series by this author.

The Yellow Rose is the second book in the Lone Star Legacy. I have read this one out of sync, but it was wonderful! I have ordered Deep in the Heart to read next. I love the story about Jerusalem Ann Hardin and her family. I think it took alot of faith and tenacity to settle in the west.

This second book in the Lone Star Legacy series continues to be very good reading! I am about to begin the third and final one in the series.

I usually find that the second book in a series doesn't hold my attention like the first one. This one surpassed its predecessor!!

Good, fun read. Being from Texas, I appreciated the Texas humor. Second in a three-part series. Would also make a great movie!
