Sheltered since birth at her Kentucky home, Rowena Ballantyne has heard only whispered rumors of her grandfather Silas's vast fortune and grand manor in Pennsylvania. When her father receives a rare letter summoning him to New Hope, Rowena makes the journey with him and quickly finds herself in a whole new world-filled with family members she's never met, dances she's never learned, and a new side to the father she thought she knew. As she struggles to fit in during their extended stay, she finds a friend in James Sackett, the most valued steamship pilot of the Ballantynes' shipping line. Even with his help, Rowena feels that she may never be comfortable in high society. Will she go her own way...to her peril?

"Frantz does an outstanding job on the historical details." (RT Book Reviews)
Always enjoy the colorful characters and the quotes from my favorite authors like Jane Austen and Mark Twain. I loved the Rowena and James characters. I like stepping back in time with Laura Frantz's books.
Good, clean historic romance novels are my favorite and hate when they get ruined by to much smut & gore.
3rd book I've read in this series and liked it just as much as books #1 & #2. Great characters & story. Clean, yet romantic. Would read more from this author.
