Item description for Texas Victory by Denzel Holmes...
Proud, arrogant, ceremonious, dignified, Prince Carl suffers every pain and humility en route to becoming a Texan. From the dilemma in his principality, through the arduous sea voyage, to the overland journey in Texas, he endures what all commoners already know: fear, privations, illness, sorrow and hate.
With his colony firmly established, he embarks on a grand dream, to build a castle on a Texas limestone hill. Shortages, Indians, Confederates, and plagues threaten. The prince eventually learns that family, friends and God are most important.
Denzel Holmes, a retired, laid-back, government auditor has finally found the time to live his dream of writing. Tom continues as an energy driven Career Center Coordinator and researcher of German history.
A descendant of some of the original settlers of New Braunfels, Texas, Tom Schliesing brings his knowledge of castles and family lore to this wondrously captivating novel. Reading this book will take you back in time to witness some of the greatest events in Texas history. You'll meet some of the most colorful characters who settled that great state, and you'll fall in love with them. Above all, Texas Victory is a love story about life and passion and the human need to strive toward goals.

Breathtakingly awesome! Jun 19, 2003
Holmes and Schliesing are authors whose books that we will soon be shown on the bestseller lists!
TEXAS VICTORY is a romp through an untapped chapter of drama on the Texas frontier. Not a horse western, not another fast-draw artist. An arrogant warrior prince brings his colony into the Hill Country wilderness. He faces Comanche Chief Fleetaumountec who accuses him of eating the wife the chief gave him. Frau Greta Gotlieb, his fiancee's lady-in-waiting, despises the man from the first day. The immigrants' abhorrence to slavery put them at odds with fellow Texans. The prince takes action. The characters are loveable and warm. The love story is overwhelming, the resolution spell binding.
TEXAS VICTORY is the sort of book that when one gets near to the end, one begins reading slower because he/she doesn't want to see it end. This is a must have book for men, women, Texans and non-Texans alike!
