The Colonel's Lady by Laura Frantz - Book Trailer and Preview
About Laura Frantz:
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 and Courting Morrow Little and currently lives in the misty woods of Washington with her husband and two sons (from the Revell website).
About The Colonel's Lady:
In 1779, when genteel Virginia spinster Roxanna Rowan arrives at the Kentucky fort commanded by Colonel Cassius McLinn, she finds that her officer father has died. Penniless and destitute, Roxanna is forced to take her father's place as scrivener. Before long, it's clear that the colonel himself is attracted to her. But she soon realizes the colonel has grave secrets of his own—some of which have to do with her father's sudden death. Can she ever truly love him?
Readers will be enchanted by this powerful story of love, faith, and forgiveness from reader favorite Laura Frantz. Her solid research and deft writing immerse readers in the world of the early frontier while her realistic characters become intimate friends (from www.goodreads.com).
The Colonel's Lady is scheduled to release August 1, 2011. You can find more information about Laura and her books by visiting Laura's Blog.
I've read Laura's other books, and they are without a doubt, two of the best books I have ever read! I highly recommend both of them! You can read my reviews here . . . The Frontiersman's Daughter and Courting Morrow Little.
