Publisher's Summary

Lovely but tough as nails, Lael Click is the daughter of a celebrated frontiersman. Haunted by her father's former captivity with the Shawnee Indians, as well as the secret sins of her family's past, Lael comes of age in the fragile Kentucky settlement her father founded. Though she faces the loss of a childhood love, a dangerous family feud, and the affection of a Shawnee warrior, Lael draws strength from the rugged land she calls home, and from Ma Horn, a distant relative who shows her the healing ways of herbs and roots found in the hills. But the arrival of an outlander doctor threatens her view of the world, God, and herself and the power of grace and redemption. This epic novel gives listeners a glimpse into the simple yet daring lives of the pioneers who first crossed the Appalachians, all through the courageous eyes of a determined young woman. Laura Frantz's debut novel offers a feast for fans of historical fiction and romance lovers alike.

    "Great Historical Romance"

    I enjoyed this book because of the story, but also because the narrator brought it to life! I was able to truly feel like I was in the moment the entire book. I imagined all of the scenarios and could see the characters clear as day! Well worth a credit! Can't wait to hear more from this author and narrator!

    Story
    "Medicine woman"

    I liked this book for all the medicine remedies that people used. The story is great going from frontier daughter to charm school and back to the frontier. Really tells of the harsh living of those days and the hard work it took to live.

    Well written story that keeps you listening. The narrator carried the story and characters through nicely and was a pleasure to listen to. I don’t usually listen to books in this category, but will be looking for more from this author in the future.

    "The Frontiersman's Daughter: A Novel"

    "This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast."

    This is a wonderful Historical Fiction . Whom will the Frontiersman's Daughter choose, Simon, Captain Jack, Dr. Ian, someone else or no one at all? The plot has the young lady living in early Kentucky with Indians, settlers, soldiers and more. She is sent to Virginia to become a lady. Years later after her father's death she returns home where the adventure begins.

    The narration was excellant.

    Story
    "Nice story, annoying narration"

    I liked the story and the plot. I enjoyed the time period and the setting-the back woods of Kentucky in the mid 1700's. I was very disappointed in the narration. With so many positive reviews I had high expectations. I found her raspy, whispering voice a distraction and her accents weren't very accurate. Ian was from Scotland and whenever he had an accent it sounded more Irish than Scottish. Once I got past the narration I enjoyed the book and will look into other books by this author-as long as they have a different narrator.
