"This third novel by Laura Frantz is a tour de force. Riveting plotline, dynamic characters, and flawless historical accuracy will vividly transport the reader to another time and place...Readers will be left at the edge of their seats for hours. Even though the novel is over four hundred pages, the reader is still left wanting more...quite an accomplishment for any author."
Can love survive the secrets kept buried within a tormented heart?
Roxanna Rowan may be a genteel Virginia woman, but she is determined to brave the wilds of the untamed frontier to reach a remote Kentucky fort. Eager to reunite with her father, who serves under Colonel Cassius McLinn, Roxanna is devastated to find that her father has been killed on a campaign.
Penniless and out of options, Roxanna is forced to remain at the fort. As she spends more and more time with the fiery Colonel McLinn, the fort is abuzz with intrigue and innuendo. Can Roxanna truly know who the colonel is--and what he's done?
Immerse yourself in this powerful story of love, faith, and forgiveness set in the tumultuous world of the frontier in 1779.
