Book Review - "The Colonel's Lady"

Taking place in Kentucky during the 1770's you are in for a historical experience while reading Laura Frantz's "The Colonel's Lady." The frontier is a wild and dangerous place, and it becomes even more wild and dangerous when Roxanna arrives and learns that her father has been killed. Unable to afford to leave, Roxanna takes over her father's position working for the Colonel. However, this is just not a Colonel, this is a man who promised Roxanna's father that he would watch out for her; however the chemistry that is between them is stronger than that. Roxanna has suffered through the deaths of her parents and having her fiancee leave her for another woman and she is hesitant around the Colonel as she has heard that he has a lady back in Ireland. Will Roxanna and her heart be safe and will she trust God?

This is the third book that I have read by Laura Frantz and I think this is my favorite out of the three! The characters are so real and well-developed and full of emotion! Frantz does a wonderful job at describing the frontier and creating vivid images transporting the reader back in time. This story is filled with romance, intrigue and struggles that we still deal with today creating a wonderful read!
