The Mistress of Tall Acre: A Book Review

About The Book:

There can be only one mistress of Tall Acre . . .
The American Revolution is finally over, and Sophie Menzies is starved for good news. When her nearest neighbor, General Seamus Ogilvy, finally comes home to Tall Acre, she hopes it is a sign of better days to come. But the general is now a widower with a small daughter in desperate need of a mother. Nearly destitute, Sophie agrees to marry Seamus and become the mistress of Tall Acre in what seems a safe, sensible arrangement. But when a woman from the general's past returns without warning, the ties that bind this fledgling family together will be strained to the utmost. When all is said and done, who will be the rightful mistress of Tall Acre?

Triumph and tragedy, loyalty and betrayal--you will find it all in the rich pages of this newest novel from the talented pen of Laura Frantz.

My Review:

A book set in the American Revolution, which intriguing story lines and equally fascinating characters. Lily Cate and Sophie were by far my favorite of all the characters and it was because of them I read this book in less than 24 hours over a weekend. Frantz writes a story like no other, and I liken her to Julie Klassen, and that is a huge compliment. The story lines of post-war life was impeccably written and I was drawn into the action and romance from the very first pages. I cannot wait to read more from this author! 

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