Let me begin by saying that Laura Frantz is one of those amazing authors who can actually pull the reader right back in time. Maybe it’s because I hear her characters speaking or maybe it’s because the setting places me right in the middle of the story.
I loved reading this frontier drama-romance. I especially enjoyed the historical detail that is vital to a novel of this genre. The inclusion of historical characters that are an integral part of this area’s past adds to the intriguing tale.
Temperance Grace Tucker and Sion Morgan are spirited characters that come to life in the pages of this story set in the territory of Kentucke in April of 1777, a volatile and violent time in our nation’s history. Traveling through minimally charted territory during a time when the colonists fought for their freedom in the East and brutal Indian attacks occurred on a regular basis in the West, Sion does the unexpected and hires Tempe, an outstanding marksman familiar with the land, to guide his surveying crew through the remote wilderness.
Tempe and Sion’s travels through the wilds of Kentucke are filled with action, adventure, heart break, a bit of romance, and faith. This story touched my heart with its very real characters and its sense of the time period. A wonderful story for lovers of historical fiction, inspirational fiction, romance, and adventure!
