"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 Rating: Summer
This book is stunning—the word pictures, the emotion, and the romance all are beautiful! Frantz drew me into the story with her superb and engaging writing style, and I became enthralled with the masterpiece she painted for the reader. The setting is absolutely gorgeous, and it was wonderful to visit Kentucke again after having read The Frontiersman’s Daughter. There are even references back to her first book, and I enjoyed having a different perspective on some of Frantz’ previous characters.
This is an exceptional story about tender, exciting, and amazing love! With great lessons about the need to let go of prejudice and the importance of learning to trust the Lord and loved ones, this book has it all, flawlessly woven together and far from being “preachy.” It is with great satisfaction and pleasure that I write this review and ponder this book. I very highly recommend it!
