Publisher's Summary

The American Revolution is finally over, and Sophie Menzies is starved for good news. When her nearest neighbor, General Seamus Ogilvy, finally comes home to Tall Acre, she hopes it is a sign of better days to come. But the general is now a widower with a small daughter in desperate need of a mother. Nearly destitute, Sophie agrees to marry Seamus and become the mistress of Tall Acre in what seems a safe, sensible arrangement. But when a woman from the general's past returns without warning, the ties that bind this fledgling family together will be strained to the utmost. When all is said and done, who will be the rightful mistress of Tall Acre?

Wow this was great!

Laura Frantz is wonderful at weaving a story that totally keeps you engrossed, and this one does not disappoint. The characters are well developed and interesting and the story has a great plot and some twists and enough romance to keep the listener engaged. It’s clean and faith based. The narrator does a great job too with enough distinction between the voices so that the listener knows which character it’s coming from. Worth a credit for sure!

One of my Favorite Authors

Laura Frantz continues to provide good stories that are descriptive, complex and well thought out. This is one of my favorites as it explores not only how complicated relationship can be, it sets in the revolutionary period of America and it's aftermath, bringing into focus the loyalties, patriotism, and consequences of the war.

Need 10 Stars

A common plot but truly uncommon, twist, and turns with characters you want to adopt into your family and see often. At the end of the American Revolution, Sophie Menzies is alone and losing everything, Seamus comes home to the estate next door trying to heal his pain and help his little motherless daughter, Lily Kate. PG 13 rating-- a God touched story that rings true.

One of the best ever books!

More Religious Than Expected

This is definitely Christian Fiction. A lot of Bible verse. I believe this could have been edited down a bit. The characters ramble on about their feelings and it becomes redundant. Yes, we get it. You love each other, you love the liitle girl and you love God. Yes, you're upset about the circumstances. Yes, you're faith and prayer will pull you through. We had to go through this litany several times. I wanted to get on with it and move on to the plot. Faith and prayer is all well and good, but I read fictional to be entertained by a story not for Bible study.
