I recently finished reading The Mistress of Tall Acre by Laura Frantz. This novel completely blew away all of my expectations! Full of mystery, drama, romance, and intrigue- Laura Frantz weaves a colorful tapestry as rich as America’s history. The characters in this novel were perfectly imperfect. The courage and love expressed by each is something that I feel needs to be explored more often in many of today’s novels. The plot was spotless and fit the setting very well. There were moments that I did not see coming- an occasion quite rare for this reviewer. Each scene flowed seamlessly into the next, while still providing that occasional and welcome surprise. Overall, this novel is one that I thoroughly enjoyed and will continue to recommend for years to come. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my fair and honest review.
