by Laura Frantz
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.
MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK
Laura Frantz is just an awesome author! I love of her books, and I love her latest, The Mistress of Tall Acre! Sophie finds herself married to widower General Seamus Ogilvy and being mom to his small daughter. It was a safe sensible marriage. That is until another woman from the General’s past shows up unannounced on their doorstep, totally turning life upside down at Tall Acre.
Sophie was such a sweet character, and she was getting the bad end of the deal from every way. I was excited for her when she married the general. Even though she had the child to take care of, life was still difficult for her. But Ms. Frantz has a perfect way to weave all of these problems, and difficult situations together and bring the all to a heartwarming end. And I am not going to give away any more! I highly recommend this book to you, and especially of you love historical fiction. The history throughout this book is amazing and will make you want to be there at Tall Acre’s with the all of these characters.
