My Thoughts
I adore every book written by Laura Frantz. Much to my delight this lovely book arrived in the mail early! I have met Laura and after meeting her it makes me love her books all the more, she is the sweetest most down to earth lady! Anywho, this book is wonderful! I LOVE this time period of 1775 and the characters are very well written. Elisabeth is such a unique character, I am not sure how to explain but she is not what you would expect. Honestly, I felt pretty convicted after reading this book about how I worry too much. I feel like an underlying tone in the novel is that we need to take our worries to God and let Him handle it. Not to fret. The book is full of such great chunks of history and I need to read more about lace making, I couldn't imagine doing it myself! In classy Frantz style the romance is written perfectly. Basically as a history lover, this book has it all. I sat down to read it and didn't stop until the end. If you are new to Frantz books, you should read this book. If you have been reading Laura's books for awhile, this much anticipated read is one you will love! 
Five stars.
