Courting Morrow Little by Laura Frantz

Caught between the wilderness and civilization, Morrow Little must find her way to true love.

Morrow Little is haunted by the memory of the day her family was torn apart by raiding Shawnee warriors. Now that she is nearly a grown woman and her father is ailing, she must make difficult choices about the future. Several men--ranging from the undesired to the unthinkable--vie for her attentions, but she finds herself inexplicably drawn to a forbidden love that both terrifies and intrigues her. Can she betray the memory of her lost loved ones--and garner suspicion from her friends--by pursuing a life with him? Or should she seal her own misery by marrying a man she doesn't love?

This sweeping tale of romance and forgiveness will envelop you as it takes you from a Kentucky fort through the vast wilderness of the West.

Here's my review of this wonderful romantic adventure:

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Laura Frantz and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Courting Morrow Little" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

Laura Frantz’ “Courting Morrow Little” is an inspiring novel of life on the Kentucke frontier in the mid-to-late 1700s. Morrow witnessed the aftermath of an Indian attack on her family at the age of five. Her mother and sister murdered, her brother kidnapped, she was left to be raised alone by her father. Thirteen years later, when she returns to her father after living with relatives for a time up north, she finds her true love in the most unlikely of places.

This is a beautifully written, sweeping novel that ties nicely to Frantz’ first novel of the Kentucke frontier: “The Frontiersman’s Daughter”. I look forward to more novels by this author. She knows this time and place well enough to transport the reader completely through her writing.
