Gripping conclusion
4 stars By Rel of Relz Reviewz, Nov 03 2014
Laura Frantz has been on my must-read list since her debut novel, The Frontiersman's Daughter, for her attention to detail, the obvious respect she has for history ~ it's places, people, and circumstances, and her finely honed characters, created with complexity and heart. Love's Fortune continues those beautiful Frantz traditions. Laura has an innate sense of what her readers desire and it shows in Wren and James' journey. There is tender romance, heartache, yearning, conflict, and healing, all set against the backdrop of patriarch Silas Ballantyne's legacy, whose story is told in Love's Reckoning. The Ballantyne family's road hasn't been easy, with estrangement and betrayal, and this final installment concludes the series beautifully. Laura's prose is elegant and thoughtful, immersing the reader in the turmoil Wren faces when confronted with an opulent lifestyle with which she is unfamiliar. James is intriguing for his aloof manner and the expectations he has of his own future, rendered awry by the lovely Wren. I adored everything about their story but have to admit, I was disappointed with the hasty manner in which another romance unfolded, which left me feeling a little bereft. That said, Love's Fortune remains an enchanting story and I'm eager to see where Laura takes us next.
