Fall Book Club Read & Giveaway




One of the highlights of our quarterly book club meetings is the reveal of the new book selection at the end of the meeting. Because we pushed our last meeting further into the fall, we have decided to switch things up a bit. I plan to host a Christmas party and book exchange at my house in December, and our next regular meeting will fall sometime in winter -- hopefully around Valentine's Day. We will be discussing this romantic story I am sure you will love ...






Courting Morrow Little by Laura Frantz


Are you looking for a good read to curl up with this fall? Reviewers praise Courting Morrow Little, calling it breathtaking, transformative and true to the period. Romantic Times Book Reviews enthuses, "The vivid descriptions will bring the landscape to life, and the excellent writing will keep readers turning pages." This sweeping romance will captivate you from the start. The book description reads:



Caught between the wilderness and civilization, Morrow Little must find her way to true love.

Morrow Little is haunted by the memory of the day her family was torn apart by raiding Shawnee warriors. Now that she is nearly a grown woman and her father is ailing, she must make difficult choices about the future. Several men--ranging from the undesired to the unthinkable--vie for her attentions, but she finds herself inexplicably drawn to a forbidden love that both terrifies and intrigues her. Can she betray the memory of her lost loved ones--and garner suspicion from her friends--by pursuing a life with him? Or should she seal her own misery by marrying a man she doesn't love?

This sweeping tale of romance and forgiveness will envelop you as it takes you from a Kentucky fort through the vast wilderness of the West.



Stop by author Laura Frantz' web site, and you will notice immediately that she truly has a heart for her readers. Within a few moments you will feel at home, ready to curl up on the sofa to catch up with a dear friend. I hope to connect with Laura and know our book club will be eager to chat with her. Read an excerpt of the book and purchase your copy of Courting Morrow Little here.




And if you would like to enter to win a copy of the book, please leave a comment below. I will announce the winner next week!
