Summary

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 - listeners can find it all in the rich audio presentation of this newest historical novel from the talented pen of Laura Frantz. Her careful historical details immerse the listener in the story's world, and her emotional writing and finely tuned characters never cease to enchant fans both old and new.

Love it! Book on faith, love and hope. I couldn’t put it down... my only regrets is that it wasn’t long enough as if 11 hours was short. 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽

Wow this was great!

Laura Frantz is wonderful at weaving a story that totally keeps you engrossed, and this one does not disappoint. The characters are well developed and interesting and the story has a great plot and some twists and enough romance to keep the listener engaged. It’s clean and faith based. The narrator does a great job too with enough distinction between the voices so that the listener knows which character it’s coming from. Worth a credit for sure!

One of my Favorite Authors

Laura Frantz continues to provide good stories that are descriptive, complex and well thought out. This is one of my favorites as it explores not only how complicated relationship can be, it sets in the revolutionary period of America and it's aftermath, bringing into focus the loyalties, patriotism, and consequences of the war.
