My Review: Courting Morrow Little by Laura Frantz

Historical Fiction

From the publisher:
Caught between the wilderness and civilization, Morrow Little must find her way to true love.

Morrow Little is haunted by the memory of the day her family was torn apart by raiding Shawnee warriors. Now that she is nearly a grown woman and her father is ailing, she must make difficult choices about the future. Several men--ranging from the undesired to the unthinkable--vie for her attentions, but she finds herself inexplicably drawn to a forbidden love that both terrifies and intrigues her. Can she betray the memory of her lost loved ones--and garner suspicion from her friends--by pursuing a life with him? Or should she seal her own misery by marrying a man she doesn't love?

This sweeping tale of romance and forgiveness will envelop you as it takes you from a Kentucky fort through the vast wilderness of the West.

My Review:
Laura Frantz has done it again! If you like a dashing hero, a rather terrifying army major, and a beautiful heroine paired with a little adventure and a lot of romance, you won't be disappointed. And just when I thought I couldn't like a character more than Captain Jack from The Frontiersman's Daughter she has introduced Red Shirt! I promise all you fans of Jack, you won't be disappointed with this story!

Once again Laura takes us to the wilds of Kentucky and up the Ohio River to Fort Pitt (today you may know it as Pittsburgh, PA). I felt as if I were with Morrow facing everything from the dangers of Indian attacks on the Ohio to the dangers of courtship. I could understand Morrow's fear of the Shawnee as well as her interest and the internal battles that she faced because of it.

I addition, I just love how the author's love for Kentucky shines through in the details of this book. If you don't already believe waterfalls to be terribly romantic locations, you will after reading both of Laura's books. I can't wait to read The Colonel's Lady, next summer! In the meantime Courting Morrow Little and The Frontiersman's Daughter are both on my keeper shelf to be read again soon.

  1. You know, I almost picked this book up at Sam's today, but I changed my mind and picked up Margaret Brownley's first book instead (the title escapes me now). And to make things worse, I passed on the blog tour because I've been a little overloaded, and I would've needed to read the first one, too. Well.....can we say stupid!?! This book sounds great!!!! I've read nothing but great reviews about her first book, and I'm just kicking myself because I passed this one up, as well as the time to read the first one. Hopefully, it won't be long, though. :o)

    Awesome review, Renee, as always! ;o)

  3. Christy! I'm sorry to hear tht you missed this book but good news is you do not need to have read Book 1. The characters from the first book are only mentioned in passing in Courting Morrow Little. I hope you can get it soon!

    Julia, I think all of my favorite books from last year are nominated for the ACFW award! It would be impossible for me to choose a winner, I'm glad it's not me doing the judging LOL!

    XOXO~ Renee
