Coming Soon from the Pen, Please Welcome Historical Author Susan Page Davis!

 What made you interested in writing Christian Historical Fiction? Do you write any other genres? I’ve always been interested in history. My parents valued family heritage and history highly. I was a college history major. There are so many fascinating true stories in the past! They inspire me to write fiction, but sometimes the true story is more incredible than the fictional one. And yes, I write mystery, suspense and women’s fiction as well. Are there any other Christian Historical Fiction authors that you think your readers would enjoy? There are many out there! I personally enjoy Kim Sawyer, Deeanne Gist, Tracie Peterson, Vickie McDonough, Cathy Marie Hake, and others. Are there bits and pieces that were cut in editing that you might ever share with your readers? Yes, if space had allowed, I would have shared more about Anne and Daniel’s childhoods. Is the Prairie Dreams Series for those. . .

Captive Trail by Susan Page Davis

The Captive Trail is second in 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. Although a series, each book can be read singularly.

Taabe Waipu has run away from her Comanche village and is fleeing south in Texas on a horse she stole from a dowry left outside her family’s teepee. The horse has an accident and she is left on foot, injured and exhausted. She staggers onto a road near Fort Chadbourne and collapses.

On one of the first runs through Texas, Butterfield Overland Mail Company driver Ned Bright carries two Ursuline nuns returning to their mission station. They come across a woman who is nearly dead from exposure and dehydration and take her to the mission.

With some detective work, Ned discovers Taabe Waipu is Billie Morgan. He plans to unite her with her family, but the Comanche have other ideas, and the two end up defending the mission station.

Through Taabe (Billie) and Ned we learn the true meaning of healing and restoration amid seemingly powerless situations.
