The Frontiersman’s Daughter

The Frontiersman's DaughterThe Frontiersman’s Daughter by Laura Frantz
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I need to have some serious words with Laura Frantz. She’s making me lose a lot of sleep! Too many of her books keep me up past my bedtime and this was one of them.

Lael Click was best known as her father’s daughter. Ezekial Click had come over the mountains and opened the area of Kentucky to settlers. But it hadn’t been easy. He’d survived capture by the Shawnee and had returned to his family. But there were secrets.

Her father sent her away to a fancy finishing school in the east. Lael hated it and dreamed of the day she could go back to her beloved Kentucky wilderness. But it didn’t happen like she’d hoped.

Torn between two worlds, one wild and free, one settled and steady, and two men who could be described the same way, Lael must find her place in the world. She must discover who she really is.

This book kept me guessing until the final chapters. Lael’s life could have followed several different paths. I love the heroines in Laura Frantz’s stories. They are not thinly veiled men wearing skirts. They are women, strong as a woman can be strong, but filled with the emotions and needs that are distinctly feminine. They capture my imagination and won’t let go … even in the wee hours of the morning!

    1. If you haven’t read any of Laura’s books, my absolute favorite is Courting Morrow Little. Start there. Morrow Little is the most unlikely frontier-era heroine you’ll ever find, but Laura makes it work.
