“Frantz takes what could have been just another girl-next-door marriage of convenience story and turns it into something totally unexpected. Both poignant and suspenseful, this page-turner is sure to please a broad variety of readers.” ~BOOKLIST STARRED REVIEW
I’ve been a fan of Laura Frantz since I read her first book The Frontiersman’s Daughter many years ago. I’ve anxiously waited for each new book she has written. It has become a “thing” in our house. When a book by Laura arrives my family knows that I will be lost in my reading world until I finish it. I’m thankful my husband understands this need I have to read her amazing books.
When I cracked open The Mistress of Tall Acre, I was instantly transported back in time. I met Seamus as he was introduced to his newborn daughter. In that first scene we learn he is a man who loves deeply, is loyal, and protective. What a hero!
In the first chapter, five years later we meet Lily Cate. We fall in love with this child who yearns for love but doesn’t understand how to ask her father for it. A man who scares her, because he’s wounded from his time served in the war. We ache for her tender heart.
Then there is Sophie, the thread that weaves this wonderful love story together. A beautiful soul, needing to be rescued but unsure of who she can trust. Ohhh, how I enjoyed this book. Laura brought historical details to life so naturally. You see what it’s like to live that time period because you experience it through the characters words and actions. Laura does a flawless job of bringing it life.
A powerful story of redemption, loyalty, and love.
5 stars… all the way. If you haven’t read one of Laura’s books, then start with this one.
