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.

More from Lacy
Do you remember what it was like when you left home? Was it a specific event that sticks out in your mind? Or was it gradual?
I moved into the dorms at my university when I was eighteen. After that, I felt sort of… in transition. I went home for winter break and during the summer, but I didn’t feel like my parents’ house was home anymore. I married my sweet hubby when we were both twenty and that’s when I felt like I had a true home again. (Even though it was a tiny one-bedroom apartment!)
My new series, Wagon Train Matches, is all about travelers on a journey across the country in their Conestoga wagons. In the 1850s, people would leave home, leave everything and everyone behind and travel across the plains and mountains mostly on foot. It was difficult and dangerous. And when they arrived, they didn’t have houses ready and waiting for them!
It’s been a lot of fun researching for this series. Understanding why people would risk everything for a new start. I think it would be both exciting and terrifying!
In A TRAIL SO LONESOME, heroine Evangeline wants to leave home for a new start. She’s carrying a secret with her (a bigger secret than the library of books she’s packed in the wagon!) and believes that starting over in Oregon will change everything.
Only it doesn’t take long on the trail for someone to discover her secret. Hero Leo has secrets of his own. He can’t afford Evangeline to look too closely at his family. But he also can’t seem to stay away from her.
Eek! I’m really excited to kick off this new series with A TRAIL SO LONESOME. I hope you love these characters as much as I have while writing them.

A Trail so Lonesome is a fabulous start to Lacy Williams’ newest series, Wagon Train Matches. I adored this story so much and meeting Leo and Evangeline. The characters are ones that could be easily relatable for many readers. I did find myself getting a little emotional at times and needing to grab my tissues. I thought it was a beautifully written book to read. I loved it.
I am giving A Trail so Lonesome five stars. I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy reading clean historical romance. I can not wait to get my hands on the next installment from the Wagon Train Matches series, A Trail of Secrets, to see where else Lacy Williams takes her characters and readers to next.
I received a copy of A Trail so Lonesome from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
