Format: Kindle Edition
The Van Buskirk family saga continues with the third installment, Home of the Brave. This book is definitely a sequel to Land of the Free and whereas the first two book of the series could stand alone, Home of the Brave cannot. The reader will be at a serious disadvantage regarding Van Buskirk family relationships without first reading at least Land of the Free.

Home of the Brave picks up the story where Land of the Free ends, several years after the conclusion War of 1812, and brings the reader through the Texas fight for independence from Mexico to the end of the War with Mexico in 1848. Once again the author has walked the tightrope between storyline and historical detail successfully, providing enough detail to paint the historical scenery without obscuring the storyline. Including two detailed and lengthy military reports (are there any military reports that aren't detailed and lengthy?) enhances the reality of the conflict, bringing together all of the actions that occurred during the final days of the war.

Home of the Brave continues a well researched and well written series. Will it be the last? Hopefully not. Mr. Hepple has produced another page turner which should be at or near the top of any historical fiction buff's to-be-read list and the wish is that the saga will continue. With the unknotted threads remaining at the end of the tapestry we can only hope.

Historical context if fine, but the development of the characters is shallow, stereotypical and not very believable. The story is "epic" style, which suits the series of books. However, the author seems to be playing out some personal (or Texas) fantasy of super macho men, and beautifully strong but submissive women. Easy read, but few "real" people. Should have some Jane Russell pics to complete the deal. Sorry it bought the series beyond the first book.

Volume 3 has Hepple taking us into the Texas revolution and the settling of Texas; before, during and after the revolution. Brought into the VanBuskirk's circle of friends are, just to name a few; Austin, Houston, Davey Crockett,
and many more historical figures that were bigger than life. Another voume that you want to follow along with, it just gets better.

This is the third book in the author's "Gone for a Soldier" series. Plenty of history in this novel as there was in the two previous books. The storyline, however, is not as good, with some 21st century mores superimposed on various characters. Still good reading for the sense of history.
