Inevitably, these new settlers want Texas to be an independent province apart from Mexican rule. Caleb’s family is pulled into the Mexican war, and one of Caleb’s cherished sons rides off to join the fight at the Alamo. Thinking his son has died, Caleb must contend with this terrible sorrow amid facing an old enemy who returns to once again to destroy Caleb and Sarah’s life together. Danger and tragedy lurk everywhere, but Caleb and Sarah share a love that rises above all trial and tragedy. Frontier Fires is packed with stunning and factual American history and shows how one family became crucial to the birth of Texas.
