    This review was written for Love's Fortune, Ballantyne Legacy Series #3.
    The crowning glory of Laura Frantz's Ballantyne series, "Love's Fortune" is a literary legacy in its own right. Flawless characterizations, compelling romantic tension, tender conversations, gripping family expectations and an inspirational thread that leaves no doubt that a loving God can mastermind His intentions in spite of thoroughly tangled human complications.

    Rowena "Wren" Ballantyne has never met her Pennsylvania family until her father Ansel receives a letter urging him to return home in order to assist his now aged father with their vast Ballantyne business holdings. Upon boarding the steam vessel bearing her name, she meets the famed steamboat pilot, James Sackett, whose stoic personality both intrigues and annoys her. Having been raised in the back woods of Kentucky since early childhood, Wren is totally unprepared to be the granddaughter of a vast fortune, and when her father leaves town to manage business affairs farther north, Wren's socially elite aunt and uncle persuade Wren into making a Pittsburgh debut, accompanied by none other than the enigmatic, handsome James Sackett.

    There is much more to James Sackett than meets the eye and as Wren navigates polite, and not-so-polite society, he becomes a treasured confident. Sensing that her beautiful cousin Ellie is in love with James, Wren navigates the treacherous waters of expectations, arrangements and disappointments. In climatic final chapters, James and Wren discover that it will take desperate measures and a miracle from God above to knit their broken hearts back together.

    In retrospect, five stars seem a bit dim for this outstanding addition to Laura Frantz's titles.

    Laura Frantz has done it again! She has written a tale full of valuable lifes lessons to be remembered for days to come. The characters were so real, I felt like I was there with Wren and the others. The past came to life in the pages of this book. Miss Frantz has an amazing gift for storytelling and revisiting the days gone by. A fine read highly recommended!

    This review was written for Love's Fortune, Ballantyne Legacy Series #3.
    Loves Fortune is the third book in The Ballantyne Legacy. It

    can be read as a stand alone. This is the first book of the series,

    I read and I had no problem understanding or following the story.

    We are riding on a steamboat leaving the dangerous but carefree

    life lived in the Kentucky woods by Rowena Wren Ballantyne

    and her father, Ansel. They are headed for the city of Pittsburgh,

    PA which is a booming industrial city filled with excitement but

    still dangerous. It will be a totally different style life for Wren.

    The Ballantyne family is an important icon of the social life style

    in Pittsburgh. Wren finds her life transformed by her Aunt Andra.

    The characters are very realistic and engaging. Each one added

    his/her own touch of flavor to the story.

    The story takes place in 1850s in Pennsylvania and it is very

    interesting learning about the steamboats, industry in

    Pittsburgh, the current and future prospect of the railroad, slave

    running, the coming out in society protocols and a wee glimpse

    of Scotland and its traditions.

    Loved the chemistry between the main characters plus the

    chemistry between two of the secondary characters.

    If you want a book with vivid characters, plenty of mysteries,

    drama, suspense, romance, historical facts, utterly unpredictable

    plots, captivating writing, loss, loyalty and friendship, this is the

    one to read. There are many elements of faith presented for

    reader to ponder.

    The beginning of each chapter captives the reader with a verse

    of poetic prose to set the tone,

    Thank you to book fun.org for this Book. My opinion is my own.

    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.

    This review was written for Love's Fortune, Ballantyne Legacy Series #3.
    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.
