daischopChattanooga, TNAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5May 15, 2014daischopChattanooga, TNAge: 35-44Gender: femaleInitially when I started this book, I wasn't very certain about. It pulled me in, but not far enough. But, I was determined to skim and get to the end. Well, somewhere along the way, the book pulled me fully in and I found myself totally immersed in the story. So much so, that my thoughts were on finishing the book when I was busy.
My version of Courting Morrow Little was on my Kindle. I was reading it on my iPad and then switched over to the Kindle to finish. The story is about Morrow Little. She lives during the frontier life, and her life is torn apart at a young age when her mother and baby sister are killed at the hands of the Shawnee. Her brother, is missing. It then skips to where she is living with her aunt, and is returning home per request of her father. She arrives home to discover her father has made friends with some questionable characters. There are men at the fort who seek Morrow's attention, but she just isn't interested. Until she falls in love with an unlikely person, and in turn is no longer safe on the frontier. Together the leave, seeking a new life in the Missouri frontier.
All in all, I did enjoy the book and would probably read it again. It's not in my list of "deletes" that I have stored on my Kindle. The beginning is a little slow, but over time, as I mentioned before, you are pulled into the story. In a sense, I think there could have been a little more character development. There were areas that I felt the story was teetering on floundering, such as her friends, herself and father.
Personally, I think it is worth a read for someone to develop their own perspective. I enjoyed it and would love to read a continuation.
Pegg ThomasOssineke, MIAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5The Best Book I've Read This YearMarch 31, 2014Pegg ThomasOssineke, MIAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5By far the best book I've read this year. I could not put this one down. A gripping tale with characters you'll never forget.
Morrow Little was five years old when Indians killed her mother and younger sister, and took her older brother captive. She and her father, a preacher in a Kentucky wilderness settlement, carried on as best they could. Pa survived through forgiveness and befriending the Shawnee. Morrow grew bitter and fearful.
Morrow Little seems a most unlikely character to survive on the frontier. Small, fearful, and uncertain, she is anything but a stereotypical pioneer woman. I like that deviation. It made the story much more interesting. I found myself rooting for her to rise above it.
Laura Frantz does an excellent job of portraying the frontier from both sides. So many authors want to portray the Native Americans as only victims or the American frontiersmen as only cruel aggressors. Frantz portrays them more realistically; the good, the bad, and the ugly. They were human and, as humans, each sector included all of the above.
I'm not giving any spoilers away, because while some of the story line was predictable, there were some interesting and intriguing twists too. It didn't end like I expected it would - in one respect - and I like being wrong when I think I know exactly what's going to happen.
PatsdreamHuntsville, ALAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Historical Romance, Kentucke Frontier, Faith, LoveFebruary 18, 2014PatsdreamHuntsville, ALAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Morrow Little remembers her older brother (10) telling her to hide and stay hidden. After the noise dies down and he doesn't return she runs home to find her brother missing, her mother and baby sister killed by the Shawnee. Her father was in the field and by the time he found Morrow the horror had already been exposed. As Morrow grows up she remembers two Shawnee warriors coming to their house. One was still a youth, yet she remembered about her family and was scared of them. She couldn't understand why her father would be friends with them. He told her that they had to forgive as Christ forgave them. He was the local pastor. They lived near the fort and he would go there to hold church services. Then on of the officers decided that Morrow would make a good wife back in VA. That she didn't belong on the wild frontiers of Kentucke. When her father encourages her to marry an enlisted man, who is terrified of the officer, she agrees. When he is killed in battle with the Shawnee and British she knows she is trapped. Her father's health is failing, he wants her protected. When Red Coat, the Shawnee youth (grown) takes her as his bride the troubles only begin. They are chased, the officer still can't believe she would marry a half-breed to keep from marrying him. New friendships, struggles, a slowly developing love from Morrow to Red Coat.
I bought this book and thoroughly enjoyed it. No one asked me to leave a review & all opinions. mistakes are my own. I do recommend this. I gave The Colonel's Lady 5 stars but I can't give this one more because that's all they have. It was even better than the first book I read by Laura Frantz. Definitely will be buying more of her books.
Renee CPAAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Courting Morrow LittleNovember 15, 2013Renee CPAAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Laura 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.
*I received my review copy from Revell in exchange for posting my honest review.*
HeidiSeattle, WAAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent BookDecember 31, 2012HeidiSeattle, WAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5I enjoyed this book tremendously. The reason being is the book just didn't end abruptly after a proposal or marriage. It was very different than most books. The book engaged you through trials and joys. It reminds you of what opportunities in life you will miss out on if you do not forgive and allow God to change your heart. You miss out on so many things if you can't forgive. I am not going to explain the book anymore becuase I don't want to give away anything. Please read it for yourself.
I normally do not write reviews on books but I couldn't stop from writing one on this book. I can't wait to read more of her books. Thank you for an excellent book I read this book in one day as I couldn't put it down!
