Caught between the wilderness and civilization, Morrow Little must find her way to true love
Morrow Little is haunted by the memory of the day her family was torn apart by raiding Shawnee warriors. Now that she is nearly a grown woman and her father is ailing, she must make difficult choices about the future. Several men—ranging from the undesired to the unthinkable—vie for her attentions, but she finds herself inexplicably drawn to a forbidden love that both terrifies and intrigues her. Can she betray the memory of her lost loved ones—and garner suspicion from her friends—by pursuing a life with him? Or should she seal her own misery by marrying a man she doesn’t love?
This sweeping tale of romance and forgiveness will envelop you as it takes you from a Kentucky fort through the vast wilderness of the West.
SOURCE: THIS BOOK WAS RECEIVED FOR THE PURPOSE OF REVIEW FROM THE PUBLISHER:
COURTING MORROW LITTLE by Laura Frantz is an Inspirational historical Romance set in 1765-1778 Red River, Kentucke and Fort Pitt, Pennsylvania. It is well written with vivid details about the old frontier, its wilderness and growing war between the Indians, the British and the frontiersmen and their families. It has faith, forgiveness, betrayal, romance, true love,unrest between the frontiersmen and Indians, struggles of survival and friendship. The characters are amazing, full of life, strong, and will have you longing to know more of the lives. The hero, Red Shirt, is a Shawnee warrior, he is half Shawnee and half white, a scout for the British, well educated by the white man and falling in love with our heroine, Morrow. The heroine, Morrow, is well educated, has grown to be a beautiful woman, seen the tragedy of her beloved mother, and sister killed by a Shawnee warring party, and her brother, Jess, taken not knowing if her is alive or dead. Will she ever find her brother or at least know what happened to him? She is courageous and is falling for the young Shawnee warrior, Red Shirt. Her father is dying, and wants to know she is settled and taken care of before the passes. But here is trouble brewing between the Indians and the Frontiersmen. The fort’s new captain takes a shine to Morrow, but she has heard the awful things he has done and is capable of,and wants nothing to do with him. This is heartwarming tale of tragedy, trial, true love, family and finding what is really important with God’s help. What family truly is and what it means. I would recommend this book especially if you enjoy finding peace through lives’s trials, ups,downs, and tragedies. This is truly a Christian author to keep an eye out for. If you have not read her other book The Frontiersman’s Daughter I would recommend it also, as you will see some of the characters from that book appear in this book also. This book was received for review and details can be find at Revell Books (A division of Baker Publishing Group).
