A Bound Heart Review


 About the Book

Though Magnus MacLeish and Lark MacDougall grew up on the same castle grounds, Magnus is now laird of the great house and the Isle of Kerrera. Lark is but the keeper of his bees and the woman he is hoping will provide a tincture that might help his ailing wife conceive and bear him an heir. But when his wife dies suddenly, Magnus and Lark find themselves caught up in a whirlwind of accusations, expelled from their beloved island, and sold as indentured servants across the Atlantic. Yet even when all hope seems dashed against the rocky coastline of the Virginia colony, it may be that in this New World the two of them could make a new beginning--together.

Laura Frantz's prose sparkles with authenticity and deep feeling as she digs into her own family history to share this breathless tale of love, exile, and courage in Colonial America. (Goodreads)

 My Thoughts

When I discovered this beauty in my mailbox I might have done a happy dance. I LOVE Laura Frantz! I was even more excited about reading this book because it is somewhat Frantz family history. Once I started I couldn’t put it down, I truly wanted this story to last forever. The book starts in the most beautiful setting of Scotland. The characters are very well developed and the story line is simply wonderful. There is a lot that takes place from page one until the end, most of which I wasn’t really expecting. I liked that this book wasn’t so typical. The romance, as always with Frantz, was perfection. It wasn’t overdone and the fact that the main characters knew each other since childhood is my favorite. I really loved the history part of this book since it was based in an area I don’t know much about. Needless to say, this was a fantastic book and if you haven’t read books by Laura you need to.

Thanks to Revell for offering me a free copy. All opinions are my own and I was not required to write a positive review.
