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 listeners as it takes them from a Kentucky fort through the vast wilderness to the west in search of true love.

💙 A Good Story Epecially w/Romance🔹Audiobooks+Work=Adventures 💫 Enjoy Listening, Debating, & Reviewing with My Book Club🔹No Spoilers 🙊
This is the first book by Laura Frantz that I’ve read and it most certainly won’t me my last. She definitely has the gift of story telling as well as an exceptional gift of writing with emotion. This story is gripping from the beginning and ends with an endearing sense of awe.
The characters are written beautifully and there is a “trueness” about them. These characters have faults, endure many hardships yet they don’t pass judgment on others. Instead, they put their faith in God to help them through any difficulties. The level of forgiveness that is shown in this story is overwhelming and begs us to question our own depth and ability to forgive others.
I don’t want to give the story away but this is more than just a romantic clean love story that transcends all boundaries. It’s also a tale of family love, friendships, faith, loyalties, and forgiveness. It’s heartbreaking yet triumphant…..like a warm embrace after a long battle. :-)
I enjoyed the narration. The accents and emotion came through wonderfully.
I highly recommend this to all Christians or people of faith. I will definitely be checking out the author’s other books.
I would like to thank the author, narrator, publisher for providing me this audiobook at no cost in exchange for my unbiased review courtesy of Audiobookboom.
The history made it enjoyable for me. But this is a love story between a mixed blood and a white girl. They love each other and want to be together.
I have read many books like this and each one is different in its own way. How the white settlers will not accept the indians or their children.
The scene that was my favorite was when Morrow was in the cave and Red Shirt almost gets shot.
I cried when she realizes who Lewis is. It is heart warming.
This audiobook was provided by the author/narrator/publisher free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review.
I loved that throughout the story, no matter how hard things got, family and faith were a solid foundation and forgiveness was the ribbon that tied the story together. It was one of the best stories I've listened to in a long time, I stayed up much later than I should have waiting to see how it ended.
RedShirt had to be my favorite character, simply because I like handsome leading men, but Morrow's father's faith and ability to forgive was striking.
After getting used to her voice I was able to dig in and enjoy the various voices and accents that she used for the many characters in this book.

I love books...I love storytelling. Audiobooks allow me to enjoy a great story while still being able to do my daily routine. Thanks Audible
I really enjoyed listening to Morrow grow/mature throughout the story
I really enjoyed all the details Ms. Frantz puts into the story. I could picture every scene and 'see' the characters in my mind's eye. Lovely!
Loved Ms. Jennings in 'The Frontiersman's Daughter' and again in 'Courting Morrow Little'. I would have been greatly disappointed if she was unable to produced the second book. Thank you!
I do not know, but I would definitely love to see both of these stories made into film

I love a good historical fiction and this book fits the bill.We follow the journey of Morrow as she must make life choices that are far from easy. Her father is ailing
and wants to see her protected during the warring years. Several men show interest, from the fort commander that she loathes, an enlisted man and a half blood Indian
she loves but is forbidden by the times. The story moves slowly but steadily as her life moves. The descriptions of the landscape and characters bring them to life. Listen to find out the secrets that are hidden in the story.
The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. Although, the whispery quality was almost too soothing and relaxed me to the point of dozing off.
I got this book via audiobook boom. Faith is the key that unlocks the door to forgiveness. That was shown clearly throughout this story. A tragic beginning, an ailing father, a love that transcends everything including race and prejudice all come together in a well-written story that lost some impact because of the narrator. The lead character is a strong woman but the narrator's voice is so soft that it makes her seem weak. If the narrator had chosen to make the voice strong it would have helped the story.
I am 71 year's old I listen to a lot of mysteries I like cute ones I really like the cozy mysteries I like Christmas mysteries and horror
this was inspirational no matter the hardship she never lost her father narrator had a soft and wonderful voice she brought a lot to the book. I would recommend this book to everyone.
Every time I read this book I fall in love with the characters all over again. Now that I've heard the audiobook, I love it all the more! The Narrator brings out Morrow's voice in soft but strong way. Her feelings and emotions were so pliable that I could imagine everything happening in the story so vividly! I also love this story because the couple went through many obstacles and challenges.It wasn't just a fall in love, happy ever after kind of book! It had lots and lots of substance. Great story. Cant wait to pick it up again.
this book was soo amazing and well written. i highly reccomend! read frontiersmans daughter first so you understand the background of what is happening. laura frantz is a gifted historical fiction writer!
This is my wonderful sons account that he has allowed me to have. Due to a neuromuscular disorder, reading is difficult. So thankful 4 this.
I couldnt stand the narrator. Sorry to say that, I dont like to leave negative reviews. Her voice was 100% wispery and it got to the point where I tried to speed up the story just to get through it. When that happens I know its time to quit, which I rarely do. The story seemed like it was going to be good, and maybe I'd read the book, but Audible was a bust!! The narrator really makes or breaks an audiobook. Broke this one for me.
