“Love’s Fortune” is the first book by Laura Frantz that I have had the pleasure of owning but it will not be the last!
It will only take a few sentences before you will find yourself sucked into the story.
No matter what is going on around you at that moment, you will hear the sound of bare feet running, thick skirts swishing and the quiet of a country barely settled.
I have a particular fondness for this story-line as I have Gaelic roots myself and more than a passing interest in the beautiful music a true musician can coax from a violin – undoubtedly one of the most elegant instruments ever made.
I won’t spoil the plot for you but I will tell you that this story will take you by surprise.
No predictable easy read is this story.
And though it is the third in the series, you may feel as if you’re missing something but it is only due to the mystery woven through the story and the family legacy – which Laura does very well indeed.
This is a beautifully written book and I’m thrilled to add it to my library!
I’m certain you would be too!
Now I just have to go hunt down books 1 & 2!
A bit more about “Love’s Fortune” from Revell:
With two very different horizons stretched out before her, one young woman stands on the cusp of an unknown future.
Sheltered since birth at her Kentucky home, Rowena “Wren” Ballantyne has heard only whispered rumors of her grandfather Silas’s vast fortune and grand manor in Pennsylvania. When her father receives a rare letter summoning him to New Hope, Wren makes the journey with him and quickly finds herself in a whole new world–family members she’s never met, dances she’s never learned, and a new side to the father she thought she knew.
As she struggles to fit in during their extended stay, she finds a friend in James Sackett, the most valued steamship pilot of the Ballantynes’ shipping line. Even with his help, Wren feels she may never be comfortable in high society. Will she go her own way . . . to her peril?
With her signature attention to historical detail and emotional depth, Laura Frantz brings 1850s Pennsylvania alive with a tender story of loss, love, and loyalty.
