The Mistress of Tall Acre by Laura Frantz ~ Review

The Mistress of Tall AcreMy Review:

Sophie Menzies has waited faithfully for the war to be over, hoping for news of her brother, Curtis, who fought along her neighbor, Seamus Ogilvy, so that they can begin to rebuild and reclaim. But the end of the war doesn't bring the news she is hoping for, leaving her with very little options and places to turn.

 Seamus returns from the war a widower, with his young daughter, who quickly latches on to her, seeing his daughter's attachment to Ms. Menzies he asks her to marry him. Sophie accepts happy to be a mother to young Lily Cate, but when a figure comes back from their past, threatening the future that Seamus and Sophie have just begun to build together, will their love last them through storm?

A riveting read, that is a hard to put down, with endearing characters, and plenty of romantic tension.  I loved Sophie and Lily Cate from the beginning, especially how they bonded with each other.

I loved watching the relationship between Seamus and Sophoe grew, and how they came to depend upon each other, as true partners and allies. I loved how Seamus was honorable, and protective, he was always trying his best to take care of those around him, even if he didn't always know how.

A wonderful read brought to life, with many well researched historical details, this is a well-crafted story that after reading I immediately wanted to tell all my friends about. I loved how I felt right along with the characters, their heartaches and their trials, truly a moving story, that makes you feel every emotion.

Overall, one of my favorite reads of the year, I was drawn to the Sophie and Seamus, as they fought for their family, both were willing to do anything to protect the ones they loved. Highly recommend, you will not be disappointed!
