Laura Frantz at her best!
5 stars By Helen W, Dec 14 2015
This book is devine. If you love quality historical fiction, this is for you.

Laura's writing is always exquisite, and I love all her books.  But to give you an idea, I consider her first three books to be 5 stars.  Her next three, The Ballantyne Legacy series, I view as 4.75 stars.  The Mistress of Tall Acre is a return to 5 stars. It had that indescribable enchanting quality, like the first three novels.  Laura's writing has the ability to draw me into another world like no other.  A beautiful symphony of intrigue, depth, love and beauty. This book was like slipping into a warm bath-the world faded away, and I just wanted to stay in the bliss that is the story of Sophie and Seamus. 

Highly recommended for lovers of historical fiction.

Beautiful Riveting
5 stars By Naomi , Dec 04 2015
Laura Frantz once again hits it out of the ballpark with her latest release, the Mistress of Tall Acre. It has all you want in a novel - romance, intrigue, mystery, and everything in between. Definitely a page turner, you won't want to put it down! Highly recommended.
