In Courting Morrow Little, Frantz introduces readers to Morrow Little, who 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?

Caught between the wilderness and civilization, Morrow Little must find her way to true love.

This sweeping tale of romance and forgiveness will envelop readers as it takes them from a Kentucky fort through the vast wilderness of the West.

Laura Frantz credits her 100-year-old grandmother as being the catalyst for her fascination with Kentucky history. Frantz's family followed Daniel Boone into Kentucky in 1792 and settled in Madison County, where her family still resides. Frantz is the author of The Frontiersman's Daughter and currently lives in the misty woods of Washington state with her husband and two sons.

Morrow Mary Little written by Laura Frantz is one excellent book. The cover of the book is beautiful and I love the name Morrow. This book is a great historical romance. I was gripped from the very beginning when 5 year old Morrow lost her mom, little sister to death from the Shawnee Indians and her brother was kidnapped. So Morrow and her Pa try to go on and live their lives. Morrow is plagued with being terrified of Indians. Five years after the deaths and kidnapping an Indian Chief and his sick son come to their cabin. The son is deathly sick. Follow Morrow as she rides a roller coaster of emotions. From fear, faith, forgiveness, betrayal, love, fighting between Indians and white man, surviving many difficulties.
Halfway through the book you feel like things are just right, all is going well, but then Laura Frantz brings more problems and different things that happen that will make you want the story to never end. Courting Morrow Little is full of redemption and forgiveness. If you find it hard to forgive someone something you need to read about Morrow and how she comes to forgive and love.
There is so much more to this story, but I want you to read it for yourself.
Another book that is on my favorite list of the year.
This is a new author to me and one that I will read all of her books from now on. Laura Frantz is a very talented lady whom you need to keep a lookout for.
A great 5 star book that I highly recommend.
Laura Frantz has graciously agreed to giveaway one of her books “Courting Morrow Little” to one of you lucky followers. I will have a wonderful interview with Laura and that giveaway up soon.

“Available July 2010 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.”

I love to read historical romantic Christian stories!
She is so lucky to have her Grandmother live to 100, I never had a Grandmother or Grandfather. I have always felt I've missed out!

I've been researching my own family ancestry. Its pretty dry! Ha! No harm in interjecting a little frontier romance at least in fiction form.
