The Colonel's Lady: A Book Review

About The Book:

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.

About The Author:

Laura Frantz credits her grandmother as being the catalyst for her fascination with Kentucky history. Frantz's family followed Daniel Boone into Kentucky in the late eighteenth century and settled in Madison County, where her family still resides. Frantz is the author of The Frontiersman's Daughter andCourting Morrow Little and currently lives in the misty woods of Washington with her husband and two sons.

My Review:

Once again I have had a chance to read and review a fantastic novel from author, Laura Frantz, and I was not disappointed. I love historical fiction, but I think I overdid it reading them over the years and it has been because of authors like Frantz, that have brought me back to this genre! She writing style draws you in from the very first pages as you follow Roxanna, and all the other wonderful characters in The Colonel's Lady. There is enough suspense, romance and positive story lines to keep your interest throughout the book, and I loved that. This book is based loosely on real-life events of the life of Colonel George Rogers Clark, and it is very event that much research went into the writing of this novel. I cannot wait to see what Frantz writes next and I will be a fan for a long time I am sure!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
