Publishers Description The Kane Legacy: faith, love, courage, and strength. In nineteenth-century Texas, they're going to need it.
In 1835, Alan Kane and his family come to the Circle C Ranch in Texas, little dreaming what the future holds in both blessing and danger. Beautiful Julia Miller, daughter of a Louisiana plantation owner, has captured Alan's heart, but he hardly dares to hope for her hand. Then Colonel William Travis calls for the men of Texas to rally against Mexico's General Santa Anna. Full of honor and courage, brothers Alan and Adam join up with Jim Bowie to do their part. The plan centers on holding a Franciscan mission known as the Alamo and soon includes Davy Crockett and his Tennessee Mounted Volunteers. As battle looms, what is God's purpose for the Kane men? Can they share their eternal hope with men ready to die for Texas? Will brotherly bonds overcome a jealous secret in the face of death? And just what will endure of the Kane legacy?

A Line In The Sand by Al & Joanna Lacy is the first story in the trilogy, The Kane Legacy. The story begins in Boston, Massachusetts, in the year 1834. The Kane's are Irish descendents, tall, rugged, and strong. Their faith is even stronger, and they live what they believe. Abram is the Bareknuckle Champion of the Boston Harbor Docks, where he and his four sons work on the dock.
Alan Kane does not want to spend the rest of his life working on the docks. He heard that Steven Austin was giving each family or single man 640 acres. The excitement quickly spread throughout the family. Adam, Abram and Angela soon follow, eager to build new lives at the Circle C Ranch. There were rumors of war in Texas. Colonel William Travis needs men to fight Mexico. Alan and Adam answer the call. At the Alamo , they meet Davy Crocket and Jim Bowie. The Kane's would have to fight to protect their new home from Mexico's General Santa Ana.
A Line In The Sand by Al and Joanna Lacy is like taking a step back in time. The plot is well- developed and fast paced. The story is simple and easy to read. The characters are pleasant and very likable. Angela is selfless, taking care of her ill mother. Abram, the patriarch, of the family has taught his children morals. I like this book; it is refreshing to read a good romance that is written from a Christian perspective, showing strong moral values. Well done Al and Joanna! I highly recommend A Line In The Sand to fans of Christian romance.
