Courting Morrow Little by Laura Frantz Book Review


Courting Morrow Little: A Novel
by Laura Frantz
ISBN: 978-0-8007-3340-7
Available July 2010; $14.99

From the Publisher:

In Courting Morrow Little, Frantz introduces readers to Morrow Little, who 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?

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

My Review:

Do you ever read a book and not read the back first?  This is what I did with this book.  I had no idea what was going to happen and loved it every moment of it. 

This book explained the history of the Kentucke (which I was thrilled to learn more about, since my hubs is from there).  The love story was one of purity and the true meaning of love. 

The story itself is meant for mature eyes only because of its reference to the marriage bed and violence.

I would definitely recommend this book to my married friends.  It kept my interest and was a good story!  A perfect book for a getaway weekend!

“Available July 2010 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.”
