Readers will be enchanted by this powerful story of love, faith, and forgiveness from reader favorite Laura Frantz. Her solid research and deft writing immerse readers in the world of the early frontier while her realistic characters become intimate friends.
An Old Fashioned GirlMinnesotaAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Beautiful colonial romanceAugust 24, 2015An Old Fashioned GirlMinnesotaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love Frantz's depiction of frontier life - I feel so grounded in the setting, it's like I'm there, both in time and place. Most of that is thanks to her grasp of historical detail, which lays the foundation for the story. And she doesn't sugarcoat the bad: this novel is quite revealing as to the dismal existence of a soldier on the frontier, where alcohol was one of the few ways to escape from the pain of injuries, sickness (such as dysentery and malaria), and loss of friends in the many skirmishes of the war. And if alcohol didn't cut it, desertion and suicide were the main alternatives.
Besides being a well developed romance, there is a strong spiritual thread to the tale. Cass doesn't know how to forgive himself, and once he shares his guilt, Roxanna can scarcely forgive him. The story begs the question, "How much are you willing to forgive?" Even knowing that Jesus died for the forgiveness of our sins, there are things that seem impossible to forgive by ourselves. Perhaps they are impossible to forgive, at least without the supernatural help of our savior.
Like The Frontiersman's Daughter and Courting Morrow Little, it is a stupendous historical romance, with both joy and heartache, danger and safety in the Lord. A beautiful novel.

Roxanna Rowan no longer has any patience to wait for her dear father to return to her as he fights as a Patriot in the war. Determined, Roxanna sets out...only to find that her dear father has been killed. Now, with no money and no safe way to get home, Roxanna sets to work and agrees to stay until spring. When handsome Colonel Cassius McLinn arrives on his white steed, coattails flying, the heart of the Virginian Spinster soars along with it. When Roxanna begins to fall for a soldier, something she promised her mother she would not do, will his secret rip them apart? And when danger is just on the border, will the British prevail over them? Will anyone be safe, will Cass? And what of the secret of dear little Abby?
Colonel Cass McLinn feels dread, attraction and a million other things every time he looks at his dear friend's sweet Roxie. With growing respect and admiration for his new found scrivener, Cass does his best to keep his feelings under wraps. Unfortunately, to his undoing Roxie's feelings are similar and frightening to her. Trying to comfort the sweet young woman, keep himself in control, and worry about attacks, Cass is overwhelmed. Then when there's a chance that lives are lost, what will they do to protect one another? Will they live to see another day? Together?
*What I liked*
I love this book for many reasons but the first is the setting. I've read so few books set in the Revolutionary war time period (actually this was a first!) that it made it so worth it to read the history in this one. The cover was fabulous and don't get me started on the descriptions. Normally, I'm not too enthralled with red haired characters but Cass...he really had me. My favorite part was the nicknames. Not one but TWO nicknames, girl and guy nicknames!!! LOVE!!
*What I didn't like*
I didn't like the ending...don't get me wrong, I loved it but it was sooo sad when I reached the last page!! My sole issue with stand alone novels. ;)
I give The Colonels Lady... 5 stars!!
*My Overall Opinion*
My overall opinion on The Colonels Lady is five stars. I find it to be a wonderful book with faith, heroism, strength, and so many wonderful values in it without surrendering any passion or romance anyone may be worrying about. Into my favorites it goes!

This book takes place during the war with the French. Dangerous Indians lurk about. Colonel Cassius McLinn has lost his home in Ireland, and has been ordered to protect the area, far away from General Washington, and his own traitorous twin brother. Serving under Col McLinn is Roxanna Rowan's beloved father, whom she hopes to surprise at the isolated fort. Her father serves as Scrivener to the Colonel and is well respected there. Roxanna barely makes it to the fort alive, and must wait many months before it is safe to even consider leaving. In the beginning, that seems unthinkable, but she develops bonds with the people within its walls.
While I did enjoy much of the details about the war, what grew tiresome, by about page 300 of 406, was Roxanna's mistrust and lack of insight, and woe-is-me attitude. It dragged on and on and on.
Usually, I am excited to write a review, but not so much in this case.

ShannahAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A story about forgiveness and trustFebruary 27, 2014ShannahAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I have been waiting for a chance to read this book since I received in for Christmas two years ago. I have heard so many good things about this author's books, and I wasn't disappointed. Let me start off by saying I generally tend to stay away from books so closely related to war and war-like times for personal reasons, so I was a little hesitant when I started reading this book and realized it was set in the middle of a war. However, as I got further into the book, the war faded from my mind because the author does such a wonderful job of bringing her characters to life. The plot is set in Kentucky at Fort Endeavor. The author gives such a rich description of life on the remote Kentucky fort that I felt like I was living in that time! The picture she painted was bleak and depressing at times, as I'm sure it was for some of the soldiers who were sent to the remote forts with no settlements near.
The main characters, Roxanna Rowan and Colonel Cassius McLinn, were very well developed in my opinion. Because the author does not focus too much on the secondary characters, even though they were important to the story, I feel like I really got to know Roxie and Cass and could feel their emotions and love, as they did. There were times when I could have shaken both of them silly because of their stubbornness and hard-headed ways. I loved watching their lives unfold individually and together.
For a Christian novel, I was surprised as the amount of drinking that was done in the book. However, it was vitally important to the story. For one, the remoteness of the fort caused soldier morale to slip very easily. Giving the soldiers something to numb their pain was probably one of the only ways to keep their morale up. Second, it allowed the reader to really connect with the changes in Cass throughout the book. The author, by no means, glamorized the drunken state of things. Instead, she effectively showed the reader that drinking does nothing but numb the pain for a short time. The only thing that Cass could rely on to take the pain away and ease his guilt was God. The author does a fantastic job of showing both Cass' and Roxie's spiritual development.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I would love to read more by this author!
