Love's Fortune: A Book Review

About The Book:

With two very different horizons stretched out before her, one young woman stands on the cusp of an unknown future.

Sheltered since birth at her Kentucky home, Rowena "Wren" Ballantyne has heard only whispered rumors of her grandfather Silas's vast fortune and grand manor in Pennsylvania. When her father receives a rare letter summoning him to New Hope, Wren makes the journey with him and quickly finds herself in a whole new world--family members she's never met, dances she's never learned, and a new side to the father she thought she knew.

As she struggles to fit in during their extended stay, she finds a friend in James Sackett, the most valued steamship pilot of the Ballantynes' shipping line. Even with his help, Wren feels she may never be comfortable in high society. Will she go her own way . . . to her peril?

With her signature attention to historical detail and emotional depth, Laura Frantz brings 1850s Pennsylvania alive with a tender story of loss, love, and loyalty.

My Review:

What an incredible opportunity it was to read another lovely book from author, Laura Frantz! It was a wonderful read, with a well-developed story line and characters who were both dynamic and relatable. Love's Fortune is book three in The Ballantyne Legacy, and I love how the author takes you back in time with her amazing, elegant writing and delightful characters. The book, and series, follow the lives of three generations and ultimately it follows their life choices and how these choices impact all that come into their lives.

A great read!!!

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