Courting Morrow Little by Laura Frantz was the most fabulous Christian historical romance I have read in a very long time. The story begins with Morrow Little on her way back to her childhood home in Kentucky after spending time with her aunt in the city. On her trip home, memories of the day her family was torn apart by Shawnee warriors come back to haunt her. She is of marriageable age and because her father is ailing, she is forced to choose from several men, ranging from bad to worse. She finds herself drawn to the most forbidden love of all. Can she betray all she knows to marry the one she loves?
Laura Frantz did a masterful job of weaving such an intricate yet seemingly simple story that I instantly fell in love with (or hated, depending on her intentions) all the characters in the story. I loved seeing the relationship between Morrow and her love develops, I loved how accurately she described the relationship with her friends after she returned, and most of all, I loved how she was able to put God into it without it feeling contrived or overdone.
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a great summer read!
