The Colonel's Lady: A Novel

Good morning. Instead of starting a new series this week I've decided just to review a singular book. It's called The Colonel's Lady by Laura Frantz and it takes place during the Revolutionary War in the unsettled land of Kentucky.

I've just recently come across this author but already I've read almost all of her books. I believe I have two left; one sitting on my shelf right now and the other to be published in a couple weeks.

Book Title: The Colonel's Lady
Author: Laura Frantz

Description:
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.


My Review: I became engrossed with this book from the first couple chapters. After starting I had a hard time putting it down because I couldn't wait to find out how the story would unfold. I really liked how the story ended too. Sometimes I'm slightly disappointed with how a book ends but not with this one. Forgiveness was a big theme in this book-either from one another or from God. The Colonel's Lady was a great book with a great message.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Would I recommend this book? Yes, I would. It had a nice message to it along with adventure, action, romance, and history.
