There can be only one mistress of Tall Acre . . .
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–you will find it all in the rich pages of this newest novel from the talented pen of Laura Frantz.
Just when I didn’t think Laura Frantz could do it again, she meets my expectations in this novel. The unusual storyline had me scratching my head a couple of times and wondering where she would take me next. I savored each moment of the book, loving the rich story line, set after the American Revolution. You have to pick this one up, especially if you have enjoyed her other books.
Book given to me by NetGalley and Bethany House for review. The opinions contained herein are my own.
