    Loves Fortune

    By Laura Frantz

    Publ: Revell c. 2014

    Setting: Cane Run, Kentucky; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

    1850

    Rowena Ballantyne, Wren, has happily lived her life in Cane Run, Kentucky, as the daughter of a luthier known far and wide for his skill and the beautiful music his violins make. Suddenly a letter from her father Ansels family in Pittsburgh cast her into a world she is unfamiliar with, and none too happy to be a part of. Not only is she confronted with family she knows nothing about but she also faces a whole set of expectations placed on her as the granddaughter of one of Pittsburghs most influential families. Just as she is learning her way around the family her father is sent away on business for her grandfather. Now she must negotiate her way through a world that doesnt know what to do with this passionate, vivacious young woman.

    Watch as Wren, her family, society, and the turbulent times create a drama that unfolds and enfolds you in a panorama of American history as its best and worst. This book will in turn make you laugh and cry. It will lull you with peace and send you to the edge of your chair. The characters will make you want to hug them one moment and give them a good shake the next.

    If you have read the other books in this series you will renew old friendships as you make new ones. If you have not read the other books in this series you will still enjoy a wonderful read.

    Pick up this book for an escape into history that will leave you wanting to read more.

    I received this book through The Book Club Network for my unbiased review.

    Wren captured my heart from the very first page. Forced to shuck her Kentucky roots for the big city and even bigger expectations of the Ballantyne kin she barely knows. I felt her floundering confusion as she wrestled to find her place in a 'foreign' land. I wanted to throttle her father for being so clueless. Gah! Just like a man to pull the rug out from under his daughter and then leave her to gain her own footing again. Grrrr.

    Luckily Wren has pluck and I love how she stayed true to herself. She has an inner strength and goodness about her -- a naivety that makes her stand out in a crowd. Truth and simplicity are her beauty and that's what draws Jamie in though he has no business feeling anything but friendship for this Ballantyne heir. At least, that's what he thinks which certainly complicates things...a lot!

    Frantz had me on tenterhooks as I devoured page after page. She spins a compelling tale with descriptive words that capture my senses and make me feel like I'm living in Wren's skin. Another exceptional novel from a talented author.

    I really enjoyed this book, which is the 3rd book in the series. It is the first time I have read one of Laura Frantz' books, but, because so many people said she was such a terrific author, I went and got Book #1 and #2 before reading this one. It didn't take long to read the 3 books, as the story was very captivating and really "grabbed" you, causing you to want to read on and on. I loved the fact that the characters that you learned to love in Book #1, were still alive in Book #3. So often, you lose the characters from one book to another. Ms. Frantz allows you to read what happens to the characters as they are aging. I was thrilled with that and will try to read more of this author's books because of that.

    This book covered the third generation of the Ballantynes, particularly, Rowena (Wren) Ballantyne, who cares little for the trappings of money and fame, into which she is immersed, after her father leaves her home state of Kentucky, after her mother's death, to live amongst the family's fortune. Here she battles the love within her, and is prepared for a life, matched with the family that will increase the business empire. It was so exciting to read events filled with, not just scenes of romance, but a real sense of suspense that forced you to continue the chapters from one to the next, and found that you had just gone way beyond your planned reading time.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it. I received this book through bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review.

    Excellent Read!

    Love's Fortune by Laura Frantz is a great read. This is the first book I have read in the series and the story does stand alone, but now I cannot wait to read the preceding books! I loved the historical aspect, the family background of immigrants and a few characters that I could tell were nasty nellies in the preceding books.

    Laura's ability to bring the characters to life with her words quickly captures your heart and mind. I could not put it down!

    Wren has grown up in rural Kentucky knowing barely nothing of her Father's wealthy family in Pennsylvania. The musical aspect was an added storyline to savor.

    Family intrigue and schemes for forced marriages make this an exciting tale of family, love, romance and faith. The patriarch of the family is faith filled and an honest business man, I like that he passes down his integrity to at least one of his children. No matter what station in life, the heart wants what the heart wants.

    Thank you to the author, the publisher and Book Club Network for the opportunity to read and review this book.

    I received this book free of charge from Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.

    I loved this book! Written in Ms. Frantzs classic style, this heartwarming story is just like its cover lovely and deep. From a rich, detailed plot and authentic characters, to intrigue and redemption, this book is the complete package. Frantzs attention to historical detail and gift for storytelling are evident throughout this touching story. It is the perfect conclusion to the Ballantyne Legacy.
