Review: Courting Morrow Little by Laura Frantz



Courting Morrow Little by Laura Frantz
Revell / 2010
Find on: Amazon, Goodreads


About the book:


Caught between the wilderness and civilization, Morrow Little must find her way to true love

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 you as it takes you from a Kentucky fort through the vast wilderness of the West.

My thoughts:

Courting Morrow Little met and exceeded all of my expectations! I had heard wonderful things about the book for a while and finally took the time to read it - so glad I did! While it did take me a bit to get used to the writing style (from Morrow's perspective but not first person), it wasn't long before I was immersed in the story.

I loved the characters - especially Red Shirt. While I did guess a few things before they happened, I was surprised by a lot in Courting Morrow Little. The book definitely kept me on my toes and reading (even when I probably should have been reading a different book...). 

So, like the two previous Laura Frantz books I've read, I loved Courting Morrow Little and, once I read that final page, I knew it was a favorite. Can hardly wait to read The Frontiersman's Daughter - the only book I've yet to read by this author.

I recommend Courting Morrow Little if you enjoy historical books with romance, danger, and adventure - it was a fantastic read! :)

  4. I have read all of Laura Frantz's books twice. I greatly enjoyed all, but "Courting Morrow Little" is my favorite...so far. I love stories that take place on the true edge of the American frontier and this surely meets that criteria. I especially love Morrow and Red Shirt along with the realistic highs and lows of events in their lives. I also highly recommend "The Frontiersman's Daughter" to any fan of historical fiction. It has all the correct elements of life on the primative frontier, with some believable extra special moments added.
