The Colonel's Lady -eBook
After reading Courting Morrow Little by Laura Frantz, I wasn't expecting a whole lot. However, I was greatly surprised. I absolutely loved this book. What made this book so great? One word - Cass. He made this book stand out. I felt sorry for him every time the heroine, Roxanne, would think wrongly about him. The romance was wonderful and I loved that Frantz included the verse from 2 Kings about Elisha. That is a favorite of mine. I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves historical time periods with a great romance. Thanks, Laura Frantz, for a great book!

One of my TOP Books of the Year!
One of my great pleasures is finding a new author. I found one in Laura Franz! I decided to give this book a try after reading great reviews. They were right. What a FANTASTIC book! I canÃ¢ÂÂt say enough about how much I enjoyed it. Set in 1779 when the early American settlers are battling England, we meet our heroine, Roxanna, a genteel woman of Virginia. At that time in history, someone of her age is considered to be somewhat of a spinster. She has lost everyone but her father, who is a scrivener for the army at a fort in Kentucky. She makes the life-threatening and difficult journey to the fort, only to discover that her father has recently died. She has nowhere else to go, and stays on as scrivener to the handsome but intimidating Colonel Cassius McLinn. Before long, we find the two attracted to one another. But each hold deep, painful secrets which play havoc with their lives and their relationship to one another.
This is a sweeping, beautiful saga rich with history and exquisite prose. I loved reading about life on the fort from the different perspectives, as well as getting a vision of the fight for our countryÃ¢ÂÂs freedom. The detail was just breathtaking. The relationship between Cass and Roxy was heart pounding yet poignant. The issues they faced were deep and profound. There were twists and turns along with joy and loss. There was love and betrayal, bitterness and forgiveness. A story rich in humanity, buoyed with divine hope. No gimmicks, no games. Just beautiful, brilliant writing that was as informative as it was enjoyable. This book had it all. A not-to-be-missed, perfect book. Yes, perfect. It was that good. I absolutely, positively recommend this book.
