Revel Review- The Mistress at Tall Acre by Laura Frantz

Afternoon all!! YES, I have another Revell review for you!! I looooove reviewing for Revell. Between Litfuse, bookfun, Revell, & Bethany my heart is very book happy. Now to stalk my mail box for next month's books. :D I have purposefully saved this review for the very last day so no one forgets to pick this one up!



A marriage of convenience.
She is in love with someone else.
He has no wish to love again.
What could possibly go wrong?

In the aftermath of the American Revolution a destitute young woman agrees to a marriage of convenience and becomes Mistress of Tall Acre. But when secrets from her husband's past are revealed, loyalties and ties are torn asunder.


 *My Thoughts*

I wish I could be one of those people that can start out by saying, "I have long been in love with Laura Frantz's writing", but alas, I cannot. I can say however that I have been in love with her writing ever since the very first page I read of Love's Fortune! Laura truly did open the doors to my love of all things Historical Fiction and has helped show me the beauty of our past! I proceeded to BEG for every single book she had ever written...I'm only missing one which I plan to have by this Christmas!

This is one of the most well written stories I have EVER read and most definitely the best marriage of convenience story. There is nothing ordinary about this story! From the very first page, I was obsessed with Sophie Menzies and shockingly I found a new favorite man-at least for now! (Sorry Silas...James!) 

I found Sophie and Seamus' relationship to be the sweetest thing and completely realistic! Their struggles were completely understandable and their little girl was an absolute doll. I was in love before I ever opened the book! I loved her hair so much, I had my darling sister imitate it on me! You can see the pictures on my blog. :)

As usual, the history within the pages is priceless. Absolutely one of the best books I have ever read, hands down. Laura turned a sweet story into a work of art, and I can't wait for her next novel! As it is, I've already read this one four times in a month!



This book is a beautifully written historical like those written by Sarah Sundin, Julie Lessman, Lori Wick, Tamera Alexander, Rosanne M. White, Kristi Ann Hunter, Lorna Seilstad, Susan Ann Mason, Elizabeth Camden, and Jody Hedlund!  

 *My overall thoughts*

An intricate story on how two people struggled to find love in the midst of heartache, The Mistress at Tall Acre is a true gem!   

 *My Rating*

I give The Mistress of Tall Acre by Laura Frantz...

5 stars!! 


 *Where to get it*
