 FEBRUARY 18, 2016 I recently discovered Darlene Franklin's books. I'm hooked. You may not agree that my world is wide, since I live in a nursing home, but ever since moving into assisted living three years ago my writing opportunities have multiplied! I’ve had twelve contracted books published, six older stories included in new collections, and jumped into indie publishing a year ago, with nine new ebooks available.   Darlene Franklin lone star trailTexas Trails Series
Lone Star Trail
Judson “Jud” Morgan’s father died for Texas’ freedom during the war for independence. So when the Society for the Protection of German Immigrants in Texas (the Verein) attempts to colonize a New Germany in his country, he takes a stand against them.
After Wande Fleischers’ fiancĂ© marries someone else, the young fraulein determines to make a new life for herself in Texas. With the help of Jud’s sister Marion, Wande learns English and becomes a trusted friend to the entire Morgan family.
As much as Jud dislikes the immigrant invasion, he can’t help admiring Wande’s character. She is sweet and cheerful as she serves the Lord and all those around her. Can the rancher put aside his prejudice to forge a new future?  Through Jud and Wande, we learn the powerful lessons of forgiveness and reconciliation among a diverse community of believers.

This is book one out of a six book series. The German family The Fleischer's are a sweet family that extends grace and work hard to make a new life in Texas. Jud's behavior and belief of the Germans change for a much needed attitude adjustment. The females of the Morgan family take seriously their walk with God and extend hospitality to anyone in need. Well done and a great read!
