An Uncommon Woman by Laura Frantz


An Uncommon Woman, by Laura Frantz, is a Historical Christian Fiction book of a group of people living in Virginia in the 1770’s. Fort Tygart has been built for the people’s protection and named after a an officer in the Seven Years War. The Swan’s are one of the families living in or near the fort that have lost family or friends to Indian attacks. The only girl in the family with five brothers, Tessa had become a strong and independent young lady, yet she is friendly and helpful to others.

Clay Tygart was taken as a young boy and raised by the Lenape Indians. When he goes to take control of the fort, he is instructed to take back a young lady who was also taken captive. The girl is Tessa Swan’s childhood friend. Clay spends his time patrolling the area, watching for danger and getting to know the people.

This is a very enjoyable book to read. The writing is so clear, it is easy to imagine being there. The description of the area is so clear. The reader can imagine the intense fear the people live with as well as the amount of work they do. I strongly recommend this book for any one who enjoys reading books of our countries early years.

Forever, Lately by Lenore Rose Burkard


Forever, Lately, by Linore Rose Burkard, is a Regency Time Travel romance novel.This is a fun book to read to just take you away for a while. Away to England in 1816 and back to present day Maine, all in one sitting.

After her grandmother disappeared, Claire decided to go to her grandmother’s cottage to try to revive her writing career. When she put a shawl over her shoulders she s taken back to England in 1816. She met St. John, the main character in her book. Using the shawl, she was able to travel between England and Maine.

St. John, a reformed man, is being pursued by Clarissa. She will do anything to get him. When Claire is made aware of possible danger to him, she does everything she can to help keep him safe.

I have never read any other books by this author and was not expecting the story to develop the way it did. Once I got into the book, I found it very hard to put down. I enjoyed reading how the two struggled with being in different times, with the way they dressed and talked. I would not really consider this a Christian story, since there is very little Christian influence in the story other than St. John being reformed and Claire finding her grandmother’s prayer shawl.

I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher through Book Crash blogging program. This is my honest review.
