***** The second installment in The Tenafly Road Series definitely did not disappoint. With the introduction of new characters and the return of familiar ones, Weary of Running made for an exciting read. The protagonist, Thankful, is the real highlight of the novel. She consistently makes very poor decisions but in the end, you can understand why she has made every last one of them. The story ranges from love and romance to questions of faith and morality. It does all this without being preachy and explores many angles of different aspects of life. This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. Amazon Review

When Civil War veteran and morphine-addicted John Weldon marries into the comfortably suburban McCullough family on the eve of Reconstruction and the Indian Wars, life gets complicated. How will Weldon hide his addiction from the family he resents and admires, keep his standing in the army and find the strength to survive the tragedies that come with loving others? John Weldon spends a lifetime journeying across the frontier only to find that he already has a home.

*Historical Novel Society Editors’ Choice

“The various members of the McCullough family are portrayed with careful detail and some moments of unexpected humor, but it’s the tortured John Weldon who commands the book; his slow and halting search for personal redemption makes for mesmerizing reading.

. . . extremely evocative.

. . . a long and very satisfyingly complex novel. “

When West Point Military Academy opens its doors to black candidate Milford Streeter in 1884, Cadet Buck Crenshaw’s moral ambivalence is tested. Will Buck keep his place in the yearling pecking order or throw it away on a stand for Streeter?

After Cadet Streeter sacrifices Buck’s reputation to safeguard his own, Buck escapes to his sister Thankful at Fort Grant, Arizona and meets an old rival, William Weldon. Buck must make a decision about the sort of man he wants to become while witnessing the downward spiral of his favorite sister’s romance with a dashing army lieutenant.

Weary of Running is about the dangers of moral ambivalence and the redeeming power of love and friendship in an imperfect world of mixed emotions and foolish decisions.

*****It’s clear to me after reading the third installment of the Tenafly Road Series that Morris has a very deep understanding of the human mind, perhaps deeper than she knows. Everyone is struggling in some way and this novel is an exploration into how we all deal with it. Some people join strange cults and some of us marry the wrong guy. I have found that with each book, more questions are raised about love, religion and morality and why it is that humans simply can’t get it together. Morris has an unwavering, distinct voice and a presentation of ideas without ever getting preachy. All of the viewpoints and different sides are offered to the reader and it’s up to us to decide what to do with them. I loved the dialogue and the way that the book made me laugh and feel melancholy all at once.  Amazon review

After discovering her deceased fiancé Lieutenant Fahy was unfaithful, a pregnant Thankful Crenshaw comes home seeking guidance from her family. Thankful misses the close relationship she once had with her newly religious brother, Buck, who spends his days in the Arizona desert converting drunks and Indians. One drunk, William Weldon, is Buck’s special case and Thankful’s true love. Little does Thankful know that Buck’s religious fervor is fading and that a violent encounter in the sandy wilderness will bring her brother and William back to Englewood, New Jersey, their bustling 19th century hometown.

Buck hunts for God on the skirts of a sophisticated lady who convinces him to visit a Utopian community. William drinks his pain away while Thankful seeks the companionship of an older man.

In the second book of the series following Buck Crenshaw, his sister Thankful and their friend William Weldon, the three grapple with the guilt and regret of lost innocence and lack of personal integrity. At times humorous, this tale of family, friendship and Buck Crenshaw’s stumbling attempts to please God makes for entertaining reading.

Fall in love with the members of the Crenshaw and Weldon families today!

    • You’re so sweet to ask! Yes, I read it with great enthusiasm–and it did help a lot. It’s funny with fiction how much you have to cut out though. Much of what I learned I didn’t keep in the final edits. Hardtack and Coffee is one of my all time favorites for getting the flavor of the Civil War army (written by a vet of the war with much detail and great humor).

      How are you doing across the pond?
