Item description for Daylight Comes (Freedom's Path, Book 3) by Judith Miller...
Overview Truth Wyman has watched Nicodemus, Kansas, grow into a busy little prairie town. And she has grown up, too. Her family was among the first settlers to homestead this area, and there is nowhere she'd rather live. She's always thought her husband felt the same way. . . .
Then Moses comes home with news that he has been nominated for state office. If he wins, they'll need to move to the state capital. Pregnant with her first child, Truth does not plan to move to Topeka. How can she raise her baby in an unfamiliar city? How can she leave her family and her home? Yet what will happen if she refuses?
Nicodemus's sister community, Hill City, is thriving, too. Macia Boyle returns to her family after a European holiday. The storekeeper's nephew, Garrett Johnson, captures her attention, but she can't seem to forget Jeb Malone, the young blacksmith who showed interest in her before her trip. Soon, Macia must make a choice: Should she return to Jeb's arms or seek a new life with Garrett?

Plunge Into the World of 1882 in Nicodemus, Kansas Jan 6, 2007
Judith Miller weaves vivid detail based on careful research with fascinating characters and realistic difficulties. The result is a page-turning drama and great addition to the Freedom's Path series.
I've read the other two books in this series and was eager for this saga to continue. It is excellent and an example of historical fiction at its best. I highly recommend it.
another great book in the Freedom' Path series Nov 16, 2006
Daylight Comes is the third book in the Freedom's Path series. Truth is married to Moses Wyman who has been nominated for state office. Women can't vote in Kansas in 1882, but if Truth could vote, she'd cast her ballot against Moses. If he wins they will have to move to Topeka and she doesn't want to leave Nicodemus. Truth is pregnant with their first baby and she insists her twin sister Grace move to Topeka with them, at least until the baby is born. Grace doesn't want to go. She is engaged to Silas and they both resent Truth being so determined to separate them. But Truth is proving to be as adept as Aunt Lily when it comes to manipulating people.
Macia Boyle has returned home from Europe, but Jeb Malone got tired of waiting for her. He's engagaged to another woman who deeply resents his first love. Garrett Johnson is obviously interested in Macia, but she's not sure how she feels about him or about Jeb, who's no longer available.
This is the continuing saga about the Harban and Boyle families. The same cast of characters we met in First Dawn and Morning Sky are all here. Lily is back and Truth doesn't trust her one bit. Miss Hattie is still handing out advice whether anyone wants it or not. The characters are just as compelling and the plot is just as gripping as in the first two books. Judith Miller stories are so well written and so intriguing that reading one is like taking a trip back home.
refreshing insight into the African-American late nineteenth century heritage Nov 5, 2006
In 1882 Truth Wyman has remained in her hometown Nicodemus, Kansas while her husband Moses has served as the Graham County representative at the statewide Republican Convention for several months. He is the first black man to hold that honor and now is about to embark on another mark of distinction having been nominated by the party as the first black man to run for state auditor. A pregnant Truth is stunned as she does not wish to leave her family or her home to relocate, albeit temporarily, in Topeka. She struggles with her choices.
After a European tour, Macia Boyle has returned home to Nicodemus' thriving twin prairie town Hill City thinking of the young men she left behind before she crossed the ocean. The blacksmith Jeb Malone wants to court her and she finds him quite handsome. The store owner's son Garrett Johnson is also a keeper. She struggles with her choices.
The third book Freedom's Path historical novel (see FIRST DAWN and MORNING SKY) is a strong entry in a series that provides refreshing insight into the lives of African-American heritage on the Great Plains in the early 1880s. The story line focuses on the two females (and to a lesser degree a newcomer); each has tough decisions to make. Truth fails to live up to her name as she turns manipulative to get her husband to drop his run for state office while Macia must choose one and leave the other behind. Readers will enjoy this fine Americana tale in which choices are not often easy, but honesty rather than cruelty goes a long way to living with one's decisions afterward.
