Product Description

Lovely but tough as nails, Lael Click is the daughter of a celebrated frontiersman. Haunted by her father's former captivity with the Shawnee Indians, as well as the secret sins of her family's past, Lael comes of age in the fragile Kentucky settlement her father founded. Though she faces the loss of a childhood love, a dangerous family feud, and the affection of a Shawnee warrior, Lael draws strength from the rugged land she calls home, and from Ma Horn, a distant relative who shows her the healing ways of herbs and roots found in the hills. But the arrival of an outlander doctor threatens her view of the world, God, and herself--and the power of grace and redemption.

    This is the second novel I have read by Laura Frantz. As before, I was not at all disappointed. She does a marvelous job of describing details pertaining to the times in which the stories take place. Her characters are lovable and the stories gripping. In time I hope to read every novel she has written. I am adding her to my list of favorite authors.

    Review originally published on Black n Gold Girl's Book Spot (10/17/09)

    I love to read all types of stories featuring different time periods in the history of our country. I can't remember the last time I read a Christian fiction book based around the frontier beyond the Cumberland Gap. Most of the new fiction I've been seeing has been based around the Civil War or later life farther West. The Frontiersman's Daughter is a refreshing change. It's late 18th century!

    I really enjoyed this story especially all the fascinating aspects of herbal medicine and the treatment of illnesses in the wilderness. Lael, an independent young woman was taught the curative nature of native plants by her aunt Ma Horn and from there went on to help those at Fort Click until Doctor Ian Justus arrived. Eventually Lael and Ian join forces to help with the treatment of ailments at the fort and the area that surrounds.

    There was a bit of a love story but mostly this book was about Lael growing up and finding herself and her faith. A very enjoyable read. The only thing that I had a problem with was Captain Jack! I want to know what happened to him...he was a friend to Lael and her father but after a few brief encounters with Lael he disappeared. I liked him! Oh well, maybe we'll meet him again in a future book!

    This very long (epic=400 pages!) book started off very slowly. It is the story of Lael Click, daughter of one of the first frontiersmen to settle beyond the Appalachians. It starts when Lael is 13 years old, and although they married young in those days, I found it almost impossible to relate to the feelings for men that are attributed to such a young girl. I appreciated the way she honored her father throughout her life, and enjoyed it all much more once she was grown up, growing closer to God, and being courted by a strong Christian doctor. Laura Frantz writes very descriptively, and I enjoyed the way she gave both sides of the white/Indian clash. So it has good points and bad, was a bit long, but all in all an interesting novel.

    Laura Frantz is a master wordsmith, painting vivid settings, multi-layered characters and spellbinding plots. The research required for this story left me in awe--I'm a Laura Frantz fan for life. Can't wait to get started on her next novel.

    This is the first book by Laura Frantz, however I read Courting Morrow Little first. I loved that book and the relationship between Morrow and the Native American. I was hoping for that forbidden love in this book and it's not what I got. When I read the description in the back about a handsome doctor coming into the settlement I thought it would be a Shawnee. In the book, Lael had 3 different love interest and she did not end up with the person I wanted her with. Although I do like Ian, I thought that the relationship between Lael and Captain Jack is what this book would be about. When the character Ian was introduced I felt like the Captain Jack storyline was abandoned and I didn't like that. The redeeming part about the book for me was that it was well written and interesting, so although I was disappointed in the turn in the story, I still liked it. As a reader I would have liked some closure about Captain Jack because he was an interesting character and we never found out what happened to him.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Laura Frantz
Located in: Port Angeles, WA
Submitted: March 13, 2009

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I was born and raised in Kentucky but am currently living in Washington state with my husband, Randy, and our two sons, Wyatt and Paul. I've felt called to write since age 7 - this must sound strange as what little kid even knows what an author is or does?! Still, I loved books even at that tender age and my first story was about ships. At 13 I wrote my first novel about a colonial girl in Old Sturbridge Village after vacationing with my family there. I've been writing ever since!

    What was your motivation behind this project?  The Frontiersman's Daughter is really a composite of my Kentucky childhood - a medley of family lore, the history of the region, and my own imaginings growing up a Kentuckian. The lead character, Lael, is really the girl I dreamed of being though she lived 200 plus years ago.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope that readers will feel pursued by the Saviour as Lael was in the novel. God's hand was on her life even before she knew Him - blessing her, protecting her, guiding her. It would be a huge blessing if readers could know how much more God loves them than a fictional character.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  I realized how much my childhood was woven into this book - my love for Kentucky where I was born and raised. I think writing this book healed some of the broken places in my life.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  There are so many gifted writers out there but I believe my favorite is James Alexander Thom. If you've ever read "Follow the River" you know what I mean. I recently wrote him and told him how much his work has impacted me. He was gracious enough to write back and spoke very candidly about his life and work. I treasure this letter and have all his books. I think Liz Curtis Higgs and Francine Rivers are masters. Jane Eyre was the only book I've ever read twice, other than the best book of all time, the Bible.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I feel blessed beyond measure to write books. I hope readers are doubly blessed reading them.
