The Frontiersman’s Daughter by Laura Frantz

Lovely but tough as nails, Lael Click is the daughter of a celebrated frontiersman. Haunted by her father’s former captivity with the Shawnee Indians, as well as the secret sins of her family’s past, Lael comes of age in the fragile Kentucky settlement her father founded.

Though she faces the loss of a childhood love, a dangerous family feud, and the affection of a Shawnee warrior, Lael draws strength from the rugged land she calls home, and from Ma Horn, a distant relative who shows her the healing ways of herbs and roots found in the hills.

But the arrival of an outlander doctor threatens her view of the world, God, and herself–and the power of grace and redemption.

This epic novel gives readers a glimpse into the simple yet daring lives of the pioneers who first crossed the Appalachians, all through the courageous eyes of a determined young woman.Laura Frantz’s debut novel offers a feast for readers of historical fiction and romance lovers alike.

This novel is beautifully written, with words as descriptive as the story itself. Emotions are ripe, both bitter and sweet – and her use of the dialect is phenomenal. My two MINOR disappointments in the book? It ended 🙂 and at times I became a bit confused with which point of view. Minor, indeed. The book was lovely and I highly recommend it.
