Frantz, Laura. The Mistress of Tall Acre. Grand Rapids, MI: Revell Publishing. 2015.
Daughter of a mid-wife, Sophie Menzies is no stranger to Tall Acre. Now years later and in fear of losing her own home, Sophie agrees to marry General Seamus Ogilvy and become mother to his young daughter and mistress of Tall Acre. Loyalty, heartbreak, adversity, romance, uncertainty and confidence all combine with a few surprises and revelations for a story set during the American Revolution…
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Drawn to the cover, title, description and author, The Mistress of Tall Acre was everything I knew it would be. I so enjoyed the story-line mingled with the characters, intensity, time-frame, romance and writing, even more than I anticipated. Earning a place on my top-shelf of excellent books, Laura Frantz has written yet another fantastic novel. Not ready for the book to end, I was so disappointed when it did. Living and writing in a log cabin in Kentucky, I can only hope Laura Frantz is busy on her next novel.
