About The Book:
On a bitter December day in 1784, Silas Ballantyne arrives at the door of blacksmith Liege Lee in York County, Pennsylvania. Silas is determined to finish his apprenticeship quickly and move west. But because he is a fast worker and a superb craftsman, Liege endeavors to keep him in York by appealing to an old tradition: the apprentice shall marry one of his master's beautiful daughters.
Eden is as gentle and fresh as Elspeth is high-spirited and cunning. But are they truly who they appear to be? In a house laced with secrets, each sister seeks to secure her future. Which one will claimSilas's heart--and will he agree to Liege's arrangement?
In this sweeping family saga, one man's choices in love and work, in friends and enemies, set the stage for generations to come. This is the Ballantyne Legacy.

About The Author:
Laura Frantz is a lover of history, is the author of The Frontiersman's Daughter,Courting Morrow Little, and The Colonel's Lady, and currently lives in the misty woods of Washington with her husband and two sons.
With stunning descriptions of Pennsylvania, amazing storyline that incorporate romance and mystery, and easy-to-love characters, you will be drawn into Love's Reckoning and not want to put this book down. I have read all of Laura Frantz' books and this is by far my favorite book yet. There is a sequel that will be coming to it, but unfortunately not until 2013.
A perfect gift idea for the historical fiction fan in your life this upcoming holiday season.
A great read that I highly recommend and give a thumbs up to!
