Book Review: The Frontiersman's Daughter
THE FRONTIERSMAN’S DAUGHTER has it all. Adventure, romance, grudges, war, a gutsy heroine and not one, but two awesome heros!
From the first page where Lael let down her hair in the presence in a war party of Shawnee I was hooked. Usually in a romance I can ultimately tell who will be the heroine’s choice- I had no idea in this novel! It kept me completely entranced in the story. The waterfall scene was gripping and had me gulping air like a fish out of water. At another point in the novel, I was so shocked I couldn’t believe what I was reading and was turning pages until they were warm beneath my fingers.
Lael is an amazing heroine. Her strength and determination in life make her seem invincible in the world of Kentucky of the 18th century. But it’s the grudges she has buried deep that make her human. And her gentle discovery of Christ’s love make this story touching and real.
This isn’t a novel to blaze through. It is meant to be savored, each page read thoroughly and enjoyed to its fullest potential. Because each page holds a treasure, a key to unlocking the tapestry of Lael’s life. I would whole heartedly read this book again and again and highly recommend it!
This debut novel by Laura Frantz is incredible and she can only get better from here. I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of her second novel, Courting Morrow Little. Laura Frantz has found herself a new fan!
