The Mistress of Tall Acre by Laura Frantz


What it’s about:
From the publisher:

“The American Revolution is finally over and Sophie Menzies is starved for good news. When her closest 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 and 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 point of breaking. When all is said and done, who will be the rightful mistress of Tall Acre?”

My thoughts:

I’ve read Laura Frantz’s last series and enjoyed it. I have seen many call Laura Frantz, Laura “Frantastic” or something along those lines, I am not sure of the correct spelling. While I really enjoyed her last series, I am now on the “Frantastic” bandwagon with is book. My heart pounded with emotions and I found myself thinking of these characters after the fact like they are dear friends. I love the history woven in, and how the characters are deeply affected by the war. It is nice to see an author show how things are not just great after a war, but how people are so deeply scared, both emotionally and physically. My favorite thing in books is when it makes me feel, and Ms. Frantz did that wonderfully! Lily Cate stole me heart from the moment I met” her! I highly recommend this book to historical romance lovers.

I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
