    In the United States Civil War it pitted brother against brother in a scar that shaped our nation to what it is today  Those men made decision that shaped their lives and family well beyond the war and they had to suffer the conseuences of standing behind their convictionsJoshua decided to fight against the confederacy and stand up for his believes  After the war when he returns home to Texas to marry his beloved he doesn’t receive the welcome he hoped for Texas Yankee Homecoming tells of his journey home and his journey to build a life in Texas It shows the life he has and is building and the people that come in to his life that can only be named as familyJoshua’s story was excellent It was engaging and full of action and romance  There was death and survival but also love and hope It was really written well and was a great read from start to finish I absolutely loved the ending It was a great way to end this book I would love to read about this amazing familyStormihttpwwwboundlessbookreviewscomhttpswwwfacebookcomBBReviews

    EntertainingI enjoyed this book It was a good mix of Texas history the rough tumble with just enough romance to keep Josh on his toes Great characters I feel like they are my neighbors Maybe explain saddle horse better Does the author mean Standard saddle bred?? Or just any nice broke horse???? Back in the day Kentucky was the place to go to get good horses to cross with wild horses

    This book was chosen for the monthly selection for my local library's book club That said I read several books that are outside of my normal reading genre for this book club This however was probably one of the most outside the reading box that I have ever been I do not care for history westerns or sappy love stories Luckily for me this book was not ALL that Did it have some of those factors? Of course but just enough to make the story interesting flow smoothly and tie up nicely I do not need to continue reading the series but enjoyed this first one It is great to see a local author do such a good job Kudos to making me not regret reading something from such a unlikely source of material

    What a phenomenal book from Mr Jerry P Orange This book has a bit of everything in it It is a true western adventure I would even go so far as to say that this is the start of the grown up version of the Little House on the Prairie series Everyone interested in what it was like living in Texas in the late eighteen sixties would absolutely love this book And it continues on with the second book Texas Yankee Honeymoon When we first meet our protagonist Joshua Granger he had been a boy having lived half of his life in Texas after fleeing his brother's farm in Kentucky When war breaks out he follows his instincts and does what he feels is the right thing and fights for the union However the war is over and he is rereading a letter from his sweetheart back home in Texas who wants to marry him Next he has to get there even if it means getting past ex confederates bandits and Comanche Indians The same goes for living on the land And we mustn't forget Mr and Mrs Smith his sweetheart's parents plus her brothers who both fought for the Confederate sideThis book takes you through a lot of places people and things If you have ever been interested in the old West and what homesteading comprised of you will be in for a surprise The plot is solid the setting is spectacular You will love the characters And be begging for at the book's endThank you Mr Jerry P Orange and Word Slinger for giving me a free copy of this book to read and give my honest review

    I don't really read Westerns never really caught my interest However Texas Yankee Homecoming did just that It drew me in from the very start I loved the development of characters The story flows well and doesn't leave you skim reading to get through pages and pages of fluff The Author does a good job of gaining and maintaining your interest through the whole thing He does a good job of describing the surroundings without overkill He allows his readers to flex their imagination muscles and step back in time If you want a uick read with fun characters and a fictional story actually built around real happenings in the late 1800's then this book is for you

  9. William Simmons William Simmons says:

    Very pleasant surprise I was very pleasantly surprised with this book The story in this book is very good It has a definite beginning with some goal in mind and it always works toward that goal no matter the sub plots and it clearly reaches it's goal I liked both Joshua and Sarah and I am anxious to read the seuel to see how they cart There were a few loose ends in this book and I could live without knowing the answer but maybe they will be cleared up in the seuelMy cons with the book is that it is slow moving a lot of the time and besides the H and h most of the supporting cast is one dimensional

    Endearing southern gentleman beautiful women realistic and romantic scenic settings dangers lurking all about – this is the early Texas we all love and has fostered our common pride To test your courage love and endurance Could you have survived this dangerous time in Texas history? Written as Orange has portrayed I’d gladly give it a go if I was coming up with his strong waggish but decent characters Great book for any age groupAn advanced copy of this book was provided for an honest review
