Courting Morrow Little - eBook
Courting Morrow Little
Laura Frantz has done it again! If you like a dashing hero, a rather terrifying army major, and a beautiful heroine paired with a little adventure and a lot of romance, you won't be disappointed. And just when I thought I couldn't like a character more than Captain Jack from The Frontiersman's Daughter she has introduced Red Shirt! I promise all you fans of Jack, you won't be disappointed with this story!
Once again Laura takes us to the wilds of Kentucky and up the Ohio River to Fort Pitt (today you may know it as Pittsburgh, PA). I felt as if I were with Morrow facing everything from the dangers of Indian attacks on the Ohio to the dangers of courtship. I could understand Morrow's fear of the Shawnee as well as her interest and the internal battles that she faced because of it.
I addition, I just love how the author's love for Kentucky shines through in the details of this book. If you don't already believe waterfalls to be terribly romantic locations, you will after reading both of Laura's books. I can't wait to read The Colonel's Lady, next summer! In the meantime Courting Morrow Little and The Frontiersman's Daughter are both on my keeper shelf to be read again soon.

With a stunning voice, ''Courting Morrow Little '' tenderly sings a melody of grace and perseverance. Creating beautiful images with her unique prose, Laura Frantz breathes life into Kentucky at colonial times and into characters that grab hold of a reader and don't let go! ItÃ¢ÂÂs absolutely fascinating how the story draws in till one becomes part of it. The description of the setting is careful and thorough but even more dazzling is the character development.
MorrowÃ¢ÂÂs tender soul is very endearing while the sheer power and elegance of Red ShirtÃ¢ÂÂs is nothing but jaw dropping. What an astoundingly beautiful hero Ã¢ÂÂ few can hold a candle to him. His very character combined with MorrowÃ¢ÂÂs creates a romance so delicious; it leaves you breathless for more. I couldnÃ¢ÂÂt help but re-experience the beauty of their relationship over and over again. Time teaches their bond to mature and with maturity comes endurance as they face their share of trials. Danger constantly surrounds them but from the ashes of their fears, God knits two hearts that eventually learn to live and love, withholding nothing back.
There were a few things that I remarked about the story and thought could have been better (more closure on certain situations, a faster pace for some parts) but in the end, I just had to marvel at the loveliness Frantz has created with her words. Ã¢ÂÂÃ¢ÂÂCourting Morrow Little Ã¢ÂÂÃ¢ÂÂ delights and infuses with hope like few works are able to do. Talent like this is simply undeniable.

Loved this story!
The title of this book may mislead you. It is not just a little sweet romance novel, but a very deep and engaging story, which deals with a lot of heartbreak from a past tragedy. But a beautiful love story it is with lots of surprises. Laura Frantz has become one of my top favorite authors and I can't praise her ability to engage the reader enough. You won't be disappointed and oh....it has a beautiful ending.
