Publisher's Description

In 1779, when genteel Virginia spinster Roxanna Rowan arrives at the Kentucky fort commanded by Colonel Cassius McLinn, she finds that her officer father has died. Penniless and destitute, Roxanna is forced to take her father's place as scrivener. Before long, it's clear that the colonel himself is attracted to her. But she soon realizes the colonel has grave secrets of his own--some of which have to do with her father's sudden death. Can she ever truly love him?

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.

Author Bio

Laura Frantz credits her grandmother as being the catalyst for her fascination with Kentucky history. Frantz's family followed Daniel Boone into Kentucky in the late eighteenth century and settled in Madison County, where her family still resides. Frantz is the author of The Frontiersman's Daughter and Courting Morrow Little and currently lives in the misty woods of Washington with her husband and two sons.

Publisher's Weekly

In 1779, Roxanna Rowan is aging into spinsterhood, having been jilted by her betrothed. She bravely, and desperately, seeks to join her father at a remote fort on the western frontier in Kentucky. What she'll soon learn is that her father is dead, and she'll take his place as the scrivener--secretary--of the fort commander, Col. Cassius Clayton McLinn. What she'll later learn is that McLinn, with whom she slowly falls in love, keeps a secret about how her father died. Frantz (The Frontiersman's Daughter) manages to neatly tie and untie a tough plot knot, and Roxie and Cass are both well-characterized. The message is Christian and redemptive, but it's not piled on with piety, and the romance is sensual enough within Christian fiction constraints. Frantz has also done her historical homework, building a setting that shows how the times were not easy. Some of the minor characters are less well-drawn (the mute child Abby is more plot device than character), and the pace can plod as the clouds of battle gather But these flaws don't detract much from a satisfying and surprisingly subtle read.

    Virginia Belles and Patriot Colonels...match made in Heaven?

    This review was written for The Colonel's Lady.
    *Book Description*

    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. ;)

    *My Rating*

    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!

    With both bold and intricate strokes, master storyteller Laura Frantz has painted a breathtakingly beautiful tale in The Colonel's Lady. With equal amounts of history and romance, this literary gem will immerse you into another time and place and keep you turning the pages until the satisfying conclusion. The hero is among my favorites I've ever read.

    This review was written for The Colonel's Lady.
    Kentucke Territory 1779. 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.

    This review was written for The Colonel's Lady.
    I 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!

    This review was written for The Colonel's Lady.
    This is the first book I've read by Laura Frantz. In viewing sites on books to read I kept seeing Laura's name and great reviews. I finally found one of her books (the big bookstores are on the other side of town). This takes place during the American Revolution in Kentucke (yep-that's the way the spelled it back then-I used to live in Kentucky). Roxanna travels from Virginia to a remote fort in Kentucke. Only when she arrives she finds out that her father was killed while on patrol. She also arrives at the fort, via ferry, with "ladies of the evening" and a small girl.

    This is well paced, you have romance, Indians, traitors, war, hardships, faith, forgiveness, and learning to accept that God does know best, whether we can see it or not.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and have already started her book "Courting Morrow Little" Its even faster paced than this book. I have found another author to add to my "favorites" list. The reviews I read on Laura Frantz's writing were astute and I agree with them. No one asked me to read or leave a review on this book. I try to leave reviews on books that I truly enjoyed. I liked her books enough that I went and bought another one.
