The Colonel's Lady by Laura Frantz - REVIEWED

About the Book: (from the publisher)

Can love survive the secrets kept buried within a tormented heart?

Roxanna Rowan may be a genteel Virginia woman, but she is determined to brave the wilds of the untamed frontier to reach a remote Kentucky fort. Eager to reunite with her father, who serves under Colonel Cassius McLinn, Roxanna is devastated to find that her father has been killed on a campaign.

Penniless and out of options, Roxanna is forced to remain at the fort. As she spends more and more time with the fiery Colonel McLinn, the fort is abuzz with intrigue and innuendo. Can Roxanna truly know who the colonel is--and what he's done?

Immerse yourself in this powerful story of love, faith, and forgiveness set in the tumultuous world of the frontier in 1779.

Kim, Such a JOY to wake up to your review and Kav's great comments this morning! Bless you both for that:) I know you both are so very busy. Summer provides so many distractions and it's hard to find reading time. Rainy winters are much better for books! So I appreciate the 2 of you making time for my work. I couldn't do it without you, you know, and I' so thankful for you from the bottom of my historical heart!
