End of the Trail is part of a six-book series about four generations
of the Morgan family living, fighting, and thriving amidst a turbulent Texas history
spanning from 1845 to 1896.
Brooks Morgan left home 11 years earlier
and is just too stubborn to return home. In 1896 he pulls into the town of
Shoofly to take refuge from a storm and befriends John Langston in the local cafe.
A high stakes poker game ends with Brooks holding the deed to John's ranch with
one condition - Brooks must promise to take care of Keri. Brooks agrees, assuming
that Keri is a horse.
Overcome by guilt, Brooks return to the cafe to give
back the deed but finds John on the floor dead. Brooks heads off to take care of
John's ranch and is ambushed. With a noose around his neck, hands tied behind his
back he offers a prayer up to God. A stunning shot is delivered from
the rifle of a lady on horseback that breaks the noose and frees Brooks. But
could this lady - Keri - be an enemy, too?
