THE FRONTIERSMAN’S DAUGHTER
Frantz's debut will find a place in your heart as she draws readers deep into the Kentucky wild where women are as tough as nails, Shawnees are a constant threat and men make risky decisions in the name of survival. Although the novel is longer than average, it in no way lessens the joy, suspense, sorrow and surprising twists that will have readers begging for more.
Young, tough-as-nails Lael Click has a compassionate heart. But secrets and family rivalries will ruin her chance for marriage and she's sent away to continue her education. Three years later, Lael returns home and fights to reclaim her independence even as she struggles to stay away from the handsome new doctor who's a believer. Lael will learn everyone needs some divine assistance and that God is always ready to forgive and to love. (REVELL, Aug., 416 pp., $13.99)
