I know the plans I have for you, plans for good, not evil.
Cruel is the illusion of love. Robbed of her true love by his mean-spirited mother, Charity is given no choice but to leave Texas and follow her Prince Charming to the Golden State. Instantly attracted to her, Morgan agrees to help the young beauty on her journey, but where all other ladies paled after first blush, his initial fascination only deepens with every turn of the wagon’s wheels. Though obvious to all those around the two—how perfect Morgan and Charity were for each other—will the hard-headed, strong-willed daughter of Liberty O’Neal Harrell ever realize it?

Guest Review from Donna Cline
What I think you should know:
Leaving Texas is the fourth book in the Cross Timbers Romances Family Saga by Caryl McAdoo. It is a historical fiction novel set in the west during 1841. While this book can be read without reading the prior books the story does reveal things that have happened in the prior books and I HIGHLY recommend reading Texas Tears as Charity’s story relies heavily on what happened in it. Over four years have passed and Charity has grown tired of her life being on hold while she waits on Hart to come back for her, so she sets West to begin her life with him.
What I loved about this book:
I have been excitedly awaiting Charity’s story since reading Texas Tears. McAdoo has a wonderful gift for bringing her stories to life and this in no exceptions. Charity has waited over four years to be reunited with Hart and she isn’t going to let a grueling journey get in her way. I love the strength and passion that she exhibits when she is determined. I enjoyed reading about her journey and felt like I was in the story with her, I could imagine all of the people she met and the experiences of a lifetime. I enjoyed getting to know Morgan and the other members of the wagon party. I hesitate to say more as I don’t want to give any spoilers, however I LOVED this book and it was worth the wait. It left me cheering and looking forward to the next part of the story.
I received a complimentary copy for this book from Celebrate Lit, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.

More from Caryl
As my second family saga series—Cross Timbers Romance—grows, and the children of Book One GONE TO TEXAS come into adulthood, I fall more in love with these characters. This story—Book Four in the series, LEAVIN’ TEXAS, takes readers on another wagon train that historically left right about the same time of year as its early spring setting from Red River County, heading for California in 1850.
LEAVIN’ TEXAS is Charity O’Neal’s story wherein she determines to follow her Prince Charming, Eberhart ‘Hart’ de Vecchi, to California to start her new life with him there—no matter the naysayers or rough trails ahead. But as so often is the case, our plans and those God has in place for us don’t always correlate.
Many times, we’ve prayed about it—what we want Him to do, how we expect everything to turn out—and feel certain we are in His will. I personally thank God for praying mothers, friends, and grandmothers who perhaps see us heading in a wrong direction and beseech Him to guide us in His way, not our own.
My life has benefitted from such praying women.
So does Charity O’Neal’s.
I imagine yours has as well!
I love the well-known verse in Jeremiah! “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” Jeremiah 29:11 Especially the ‘expected end’ part. I find great comfort in knowing His thoughts—or plans—are of peace and not evil, and that He intends to give us an expected end!
I hope you enjoy LEAVING TEXAS and will take time to review it!
