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.

Laura Frantz masterfully tells another historical romance in The Mistress of Tall Acre. In this novel, the Revolutionary War has just ended, leaving General Seamus Ogilvy to return to his grand estate, Tall Acre, and his motherless daughter, while his neighbor, Sophie Menzies, handles her own home of Three Chimneys, alone, destitute and perceived as a loyalist. Circumstances bring Seamus and Sophie together repeatedly, and the two soon realize a marriage might be in their best interest. From here, their combined story unfolds with plenty of drama, suspense and sweetly developing romance. Each with burdens to bear, Seamus and Sophie are strong, endearing characters, and I had no trouble rooting for their best through it all. I highly enjoyed The Mistress of Tall Acre and would not hesitate to recommend it to readers of historical romance. Most certainly, fans of Laura Frantz will not be disappointed with this latest novel.

Thanks to Revell Reads, I received a copy of The Mistress of Tall Acre and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
