Morrow Little is haunted by the memory of the day her family was torn apart by raiding Shawnee warriors. Now that she is nearly a grown woman and her father is ailing, she must make difficult choices about the future. Several men--ranging from the undesired to the unthinkable--vie for her attentions, but she finds herself inexplicably drawn to a forbidden love that both terrifies and intrigues her. Can she betray the memory of her lost loved ones--and garner suspicion from her friends--by pursuing a life with him? Or should she seal her own misery by marrying a man she doesn't love?
This sweeping tale of romance and forgiveness will envelop readers as it takes them from a Kentucky fort through the vast wilderness to the west in search of true love.
Add to Goodreads:
This is an excellent novel of frontier life during the turbulent years of the American Revolutionary war. I thoroughly enjoyed the character arch for Morrow. Because of the huge loss she suffered at the hands of Indians when she was 5 years old, she was very biased, so it took her a long time to move past that and to recognize her love for Red-Shirt.
Red-Shirt is a character that is a true joy to get to know. Ms. Frantz does an incredible emoting his feelings since the book is written in Morrow's POV. His actions spoke to me in an astonishing way. His determination to protest Morrow touched my heart. His faith journey is inspiring.
I'm so pleased I found this amazing novel of a young woman's journey into adulthood. I highly recommend this excellent book. Happy reading!
