From GoodReads
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--readers find it all in the rich pages of this newest historical novel from the talented pen of Laura Frantz. Her careful historical details immerse the reader in the story world, and her emotional writing and finely tuned characters never cease to enchant fans both old and new.
Why I'm Waiting:
I love Laura Frantz books. Each one has offered a such a new and original story with fresh characters that are so easy to love or hate, and then there is the rich historical background in each of her books. How I love that! I look forward to any new release she has coming out and I can't wait for this one!

What are you waiting on this week?

  1. This book, I totally love Laura Frantz, and Jody Hedlunds book about Martin Luther and his wife set to release in October are two I'm eagerly and not so patiently awaiting! Looking forward to Sarah Ladds new book also!
