Review: The Mistress of Tall Acre by Laura Frantz



About the book:
There can be only one mistress of Tall Acre . . .
The American Revolution is finally over, and Sophie Menzies is starved for good news. When her nearest neighbor, General Seamus Ogilvy, finally comes home to Tall Acre, she hopes it is a sign of better days to come. But the general is now a widower with a small daughter in desperate need of a mother. Nearly destitute, Sophie agrees to marry Seamus and become the mistress of Tall Acre in what seems a safe, sensible arrangement. But when a woman from the general's past returns without warning, the ties that bind this fledgling family together will be strained to the utmost. When all is said and done, who will be the rightful mistress of Tall Acre?

Triumph and tragedy, loyalty and betrayal--you will find it all in the rich pages of this newest novel from the talented pen of Laura Frantz.

My thoughts:


Where to start?? The Mistress of Tall Acre was a fabulous historical romance and another stellar read from Laura Frantz. I absolutely loved the characters and really felt for them as the story progressed. So many things happened, including a super shocking element near the end that I did. not. expect.

I loved the relationship between Sophie and Lily Cate and how the child seemed to have felt an instant connection with Sophie -- so sweet! I also liked how there was a sliver of suspense in The Mistress of Tall Acre.

All in all, I loved this book and recommend it if you enjoy historical romance novels -- it is fantastic! I can't wait for Laura Frantz's next novel.
