"The Colonel's Lady" Book Review
Can love survive the secrets kept buried within a tormented heart?
Roxanna Rowan may be a genteel Virginia woman, but she is determined to brave the wilds of the untamed frontier to reach a remote Kentucky fort. Eager to reunite with her father, who serves under Colonel Cassius McLinn, Roxanna is devastated to find that her father has been killed on a campaign.
Penniless and out of options, Roxanna is forced to remain at the fort. As she spends more and more time with the fiery Colonel McLinn, the fort is abuzz with intrigue and innuendo. Can Roxanna truly know who the colonel is--and what he's done?
Immerse yourself in this powerful story of love, faith, and forgiveness set in the tumultuous world of the frontier in 1779.
Available August 2011 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
Laura Frantz has definitely found a niche with her writings of Kentucky long ago. I love the world she has created with vibrant characters, detailed settings and story lines that twist and turn as romance heats up and cools down. There is so much back and forth between Roxanna and Cassius in this book that it really made me think of the saying about assuming things about people. Misunderstandings abound as they try to survive at Fort Endeavor surrounded by Redcoats and Indians. I just get drawn into the past everytime I pick up a book by Laura Frantz. Pure escape and enjoyment - every book by Laura takes a permanent place on my keeper shelf!
