On My Nightstand - Courting Morrow Little by Laura Frantz
Much to her dismay, her preacher father befriends a Shawnee chief and his son. Every time they appear, terror fills her heart.
After spending two years with her Aunt Etta in Philadelphia, she returns to Kentucke and her father. He's anxious for her to marry and settle down due his failing health, but she avoids the eligible men. Will she meet someone, who will love her for who she is or submit to a marriage of convenience?
Wow! This story took some turns that made my head spin. I did figure out who the hero would be this time, but it took awhile.
Laura Frantz's characters are sharp and well-defined. There's no overlap. They are unique in every way. Morrow's struggle with forgiveness and fear will resonate with many readers.
For those who love bookcovers, this one is gorgeous. I prefer when real people are used for the cover rather than a drawing, which can seem cartoonish.
This book has it all: romance, danger, setting, and action. I can thank the author for one very late night because I HAD to finish the story. I think you'll find it compelling as well.
