The Mistress of Tall Acre by Laura Frantz



ABOUT THE BOOK:
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?

Triumph and tragedy, loyalty and betrayal--you will find it all in the rich pages of this newest novel from the talented pen of Laura Frantz.

MY THOUGHTS:
Laura has such a wonderful way of writing. She easily draws the reader into her storyworld within the first few sentences! Her attention to historic language and detail is natural and captivating, never overwhelming.

In The Mistress of Tall Acre, she definitely captured my attention in the prologue and held it right until the last word of the epilogue!

Both Sophie and Lily Cate were equally charming and loveable. I wanted the best for both of them! Somewhere around the halfway mark, I guessed the dreaded twist that was coming. I'm not sure I was totally happy with the resolution of it all (hard to say more without giving away spoilers), but the whole situation definitely tugged at my heartstrings!

The Mistress of Tall Acre was the perfect blend of history, love, and mystery. Historical romance readers will love Laura's newest book!
