The Frontiersman's Daughter

The Frontiersman's Daughter  By: Laura Frantz
Lael Click is the daughter of a man who was captured and then released by the Shawnee Indians.  Her father is well known and even has a fort named after him. But as Lael gets older the Shawnee return and want to see this daughter. One young Shawnee warrior leaves presents for her, and her family fears that they want to take her away. While Lael is trying to figure out what is happening, she is also painfully aware of her family’s secrets and truly wants to marry the man she feels she is in love with.  Her parents decide to send her away hoping that the men will forget about her. When her father dies 5 years later Lael returns to live on her own at her family’s homestead and meets the Scottish doctor. Can Lael figure out who she is supposed to love, and can she stay safe being a woman livening alone?

This was a great book about courage and love. It was a page turner also with many adventurous parts to it as well. Lael’s family had many secrets they were holding on to and you just knew that they wanted to come out. The relationships in this book were developed wonderfully and made you feel like you were a part of the story. I would recommend this book to any adult reader. 

I purchased this book on Amazon the Kindle Edition
ISBN: 978-0800733391
