About the Book

Book: A Trail So Lonesome

Author: Lacy Williams

Genre: Christian Historical Romance

Release date: January 12, 2023

Spending five months eating trail dust wasn’t Leo Spencer’s first choice. Or his second. He’s not one to run away, but some situations can’t be fixed and his family—two brothers and a sister—needs to start over. Which is how he finds himself on a westbound wagon train.

Evangeline has a secret, one that has sent her on a journey across the plains on the Oregon Trail. When her father is badly hurt and she needs help, Leo is there. A deal is struck and the two unlikely friends form an alliance… that leads to more.

But Evangeline’s secret looms over her… and Leo’s family troubles are far from over.


A Trail So Lonesome Excerpt 5

“You’re our captain. Isn't that reason enough?" She sounded stiff and uncomfortable. And maybe it was wrong of him to feel a bit of glee.

"It’d be more believable if we play-act that I am your beau.” 

She was silent.

“You know it’s not real. So do I. But to everyone else, we are courting. No one will question it.”

She still didn't say anything, and he wondered for a moment whether his pride and his suggestion had lost him the chance for that cash.

But then her voice came stiff and cold in the darkness. "Fine."

She'd agreed. Maybe he would regret it when he was fully awake or tomorrow morning, when she couldn't hide that little displeased frown. But for now, he could almost taste the freedom of knowing that his siblings were settled and well taken care of.

"You should get some rest," he said. "I've got to go on watch."

He sensed more than saw her nod in the darkness. "I'll walk you back to your tent."

She hesitated. Was she rethinking the whole thing?

“Good night,” she muttered.

And it was. A night offering him a whole new start.
