The Colonel's Lady by Laura Frantz
About the Book:
Roxanna Rowan may be a genteel Virginia woman, but she is determine to brave the wilds of the untamed frontier to reach a remote Kentucky fort. Eager to reunite with her father, who serves under Colonel Cassius McLinn, Roxanna is devastated to find that her father has been killed on a campaign.
Penniless and out of options, Roxanna is forced to remain at the fort. As she spends more and more time with the fiery Colonel McLinn, the fort is abuzz with intrigue and innuendo. Can Roxanna truly know who the colonel is --and what he's done?
Immerse yourself in this powerful story of love, faith, and forgiveness set in the tumultuous world of the frontier in 1779.
Simply lovely! I thoroughly enjoyed this tale of the beautiful Roxanna and the dashing Irish colonel, Cassius McLinn, in the wilderness of Kentucky.
Frantz recreates the dangerous and harsh world of frontier living, from the daily routines of life in Fort Endeavor, to the constant fear of attacks from the Shawnee and the British. There is danger both within and without the fort, as it is soon discovered that a spy is among the inhabitants....
The Colonel's Lady combines a colorful cast of characters, an amazing portrayal of a handsome and courageous colonel who has his share of secrets, and a charming love story. History, intrigue, hopes and dreams, faith and forgiveness....a perfect blend for those who enjoy historical adventure and a timeless love story.
