“You’re asking Bible-believing righteous folk to put their lives in the hands of jail birds.”
Popular romance and historical fiction writer Gilbert Morris serves up his most unique story yet in Angel Train. The mid-1800s tale introduces Charity Morgan, a beautiful yet businesslike young heroine whose devout religious community is losing its Pennsylvania homestead to the economic recession. To survive and stay together, the members plan to form a wagon train to Oregon where free land is aplenty. The only catch is that no wagon master is better equipped to lead them safely out West than inmate Casey Tremayne and his band of fellow felons. After Charity’s prison warden uncle offers the men parole upon completion of this sacred and dangerous journey, only divine intervention can bring all parties to common ground.
Gilbert Morris is among today’s most popular Christian writers; his books having sold nearly six million copies worldwide. He specializes in historical fiction and won a 2001 Christy Award for the Civil War drama Edge of Honor. Once a pastor and English professor who earned a Ph.D. from the University of Arkansas, Morris lives with his wife in Gulf Shores, Alabama.
