Nearly destitute, Sophie agrees to marry Seamus and become the mistress of Tall Acre in what seems a safe, sensible arrangement.

When all is said and done, who will be the rightful mistress of Tall Acre?

One of my Favorite Authors

Laura Frantz continues to provide good stories that are descriptive, complex and well thought out. This is one of my favorites as it explores not only how complicated relationship can be, it sets in the revolutionary period of America and it's aftermath, bringing into focus the loyalties, patriotism, and consequences of the war.

Wow this was great!

Laura Frantz is wonderful at weaving a story that totally keeps you engrossed, and this one does not disappoint. The characters are well developed and interesting and the story has a great plot and some twists and enough romance to keep the listener engaged. It’s clean and faith based. The narrator does a great job too with enough distinction between the voices so that the listener knows which character it’s coming from. Worth a credit for sure!

Great Listen!

Aimee Lilly did a brilliant job narrating this engaging historical fiction. Her voice was very clear and pleasant to listen to and her character voices were great. The thing that I think I enjoyed most about listening to this wonderful story is that the narrator’s pace always matched the pace of the action especially during the suspenseful portions. Laura Frantz has penned to a tale full of strife yet also hope. Listening to the audio book brought an added enjoyable layer to the book. I was given a copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

Most excellent

It was well written I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. I wanted to listen to find out what would happen so it didn't take long to listen to the whole story. I have to say that the reader was outstanding with changing her voice for each character even the accents. I will definitely be getting another book by this author. I pray that you have gotten the same reader.

Perfect.

Against the strive of a war won, the characters deal with life and loss. Laura has the ability to bring the characters alive and the narrator brings them to standing there in front of you. Perfect
