    "LOVE BEARETH ALL THINGS"

    Courting Morrow Little was, in a word- BREATHTAKING! Breathtaking landscapes, breathtaking characters, breathtaking forgiveness, breathtaking LOVE- all conveyed through the breathtaking prose of the brilliant, ridiculously talented Laura Frantz! She turns black ink into rich, vibrant color, creating love and life like few authors are able to claim. With each turn of the page her characters become permanently engraved upon your heart. Laura employs all five of your senses to transport you into a scene- you're not just "reading" her books, your "experiencing" them! She has an unparalleled skill of making you identify with her characters on a deep and personal level, while only giving you the POV of one of them. Their emotions are conveyed so perfectly and their hearts are revealed so completely through Morrow's eyes, and yet there is an air of mystery about them that brings even more depth and richness to the story.

    "LOVE beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things." (1Corinthians 13:7). This scripture wasn't just quoted in this book, it was its essence! I knew I was in for an incredible journey when I got chills just two pages into it. I felt an instant connection with Morrow. Her pain, her hurt, her fear became so real to me, a part of me. Her reactions are so authentic and identifiable. She grows so strong in the grace of God throughout the story that you can't help but grow right along with her. To watch the beautiful transformation as she allows the Lord to break the chains of fear and unforgiveness that hold her heart and soul captive was so powerful and inspiring.


    And our handsome hero, Red Shirt, *swoon* is EVERYTHING a heroine dreams of in her hero. He's strong, courageous and powerful, yet humble, gentle, and patient, a warrior, a protector, a leader. Their love, fragile at first then strengthening over time, enduring in the midst of great trials and hardships was so incredibly beautiful to watch unfold.


    Laura keeps you on the edge of your seat, the twists and turns are simply brilliant! Her love of writing and her love for God shines so radiantly through every word. Coming to the last page was bittersweet for me, overjoyed to see where the story took them yet hating to let them go. This book was truly one of my favorites of all time, one I will definitely reread again and again!! I'm not even going to put it on the shelf because that just seems blasphemous somehow. Nope, it's staying out on my desk for easy access, adding such beauty and giving such inspiration- it's the kind of book that puts a smile on your face just looking at it!!

    So Amazing

    This book has now become one of my most favorite of all time! I was sort of skeptical going into it, because I had read reviews on it, and was like "She falls in love with an Indian?" Yet it was so refreshing and out of the box. I loved it! Laura Frantz has alwways had the power in her books to make the characters come alive, and make you relate to them with real emotion. I felt so fiercely attached to Morrow and Red Shirt, and all that they'd gone through. I will definitely be reading this book again!

    I absolutely loved this book. I wanted to read a historical fict

    I absolutely loved this book. I wanted to read a historical fiction novel, as this one is, but it is so much more than that. I loved seeing the way Morrow Little transformed in this book. She started out as a very weak woman who many men liked but they all believed she could not handle the life where they live. So many people told her she was not built for that life and to move East where it would be easier and she could marry a British officer: which Morrow did not want in the slightest. She used to hate the Shawnee natives for what they did to her family, yet she learns the skill of forgiveness as her father taught her. My favorite aspect of this book was her relationship with Red Shirt. They are perfect together in so many ways. I also loved that Morrow becomes stronger as the book goes on and is not afraid of anything anymore. Morrow stands up for herself and her beliefs. This book is somewhat of a sequel to The Frontiersman's Daughter, which I am actually going to read next, since this novel involves Lael Clicks father quite a bit and Lael was referenced in a line where Morrow said everyone knew who Lael Click was. This book was wonderful. It was exquisitely written and made me feel a varying array of emotions throughout. I recommend this book whole heartedly.

    This is the first Laura Frantz book I have read. She has a rare gift. Her writing is poetic and beautifully descriptive. The characters and story line were perfectly developed. The love between Red Shirt and Morrow was so touching. This book is a true treasure to read and enjoy.

    Courting Morrow Little by Laura Frantz

    Laura Frantz is a very gifted writer and this is her second book, the first one being "The Frontiersman's Daughter". She has an unparalleled skill of making you identify with her characters on a deep and personal level.

    From back of book: 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-view 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 marring a man she doesn't love?

    LOVE beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things." (1Corinthians 13:7). This scripture is quoted a lot in this story. The plot starts in Red River Kentucke, July 1765. Morrow was only five when she and her brother Jess were in the river playing in the water, there was a lot of racket that Jess heard but she was just having fun and didn't pay any attention to it. Jess told her to sit in the water and not to move as he ran toward the house. She sit and sit and no one came back to find her, so she went to the house and had to step over her baby sister laying on the steps, no one was around and then she found her mama stumped over her loom with an arrow through her, she started to scream.

    Morrow lived with her dad and they didn't know what happened to Jess, but he was prayed for everyday. Two Shawnee would come to their house and just walk in, Morrow's dad accepted them as friends. She could never understand how her dad could be friends with the people that killed her family.

    As time goes on and she begins to grow up she becomes friend with the Indian boy that comes to their home with his father. Will she have to marry someone she doesn't love or will she wait until she can marry the love of her life. There really is not a place to even stop in this review but I can't give everything away.

    If you are looking for an exceptional and special historical romance to read, this is the book for you. You will not want it to end as there is really not a place to stop, you must go to the next page. I loved it!

    This book was sent to me by the author and Baker Publishing to review.

    Courting Morrow Little

    I have read a lot of historical romances by different authors and I must admit this one is spellbinding. I was entralled by the setting and the character development was superb. The love story developed over time and rang true. This book made me cry and it deepend my belief in the power of God. Laura Frantz is a master story teller. I give this book 100 stars. It made me want to run to the nearest reservation and get married. I love Red Shirt.

    The End of Yesterday~a novel~ Chaper 1

    The noises had faded now. I heard a faint pop as if my soul were seperating from my earthly being. I could still feel myself burning, yet I felt no pain. I felt, somehow, blissful. Turning my mind away from my body, I saw my family standing in lines beside of me. They cheered as my soul strode into a gold hall, the end substanding a glittering golden gate opening. I felt the warmest feeling of unconditional love. The feeling was undescribable. Reaching out my hand, i saw God holding out his hands to welcome me home. This, I thought, is home. I could still here the joyful cheering of my passed family. Then, thats when I saw him. Jesus. My lord. I shakily fell on my knees at the sight of the nasty holes in his hands, from his crucifixion. I rose my hands in worship. "Praise be to God." I whispered.

    Amazing book!

    I have never read any of Laura Frantz's books before. I picked this one up when it was free at one time. I just got around to reading it but I hate the fact that I waited so long to read it. Frantz keeps you on the edge of your seat. Its beautifully woven with adventure and romance. Frantz is going on my favorite author list and I cant wait to read her other books.
