Book Review: Courting Morrow Little
COURTING MORROW LITTLE is a captivating and enthralling love story. The lyrical prose wended its way into my heart and settled in to stay. The depth of detail and historical significance to the story put me right there in Kentucky with Morrow. The evocative emotions, heart thumping moments and a love story that stands the test of life on the frontier, will not quickly leave my heart or thoughts.
I loved the story’s unconventional construction from the normal love story and it’s beauty. Instead of ending with a wedding, it is held in the middle of the novel and the connection between the two lovers is strong and endearing. But nothing good seems to last and Morrow and her husband struggle against the angst arising between white man and Indian.
Morrow grows and expands throughout the story and she reminds me of a precious rose, blooming day by day and growing stronger, but with a still delicate beauty.
The entire story from beginning to end will draw the reader in. There is elegance to the words and grace to the characters. A novel truly worthy of five stars.
