This book is a great length at 360 pages and is very well edited. It starts out great, then slows down roundt page 160. About 200 it turns into the same old hysterical romance with a rape, arguments and the star crossed lovers going their own way. The conclusion is open ended as this is the first book in a series and the author wants to make sure the reafer pays $7.99 plus tax for book two. I think this is exhorbiant for an ebook and will skip it. This is a Christian book and there is quite a bit of Bible verses, prayers and church. There is also unwed srx, a resultant pregnancy. The death of a child a bully of an older sister and father. This book kept me up until 5:30 AM and I felt like throwing my nook across the room when I discovered it was a cliff hanger. There are some surprizes in the storyline. If it had a conclusion instead of the author wanting to get into my purse, I would have given it a four or five, depending on how well it ended. For ages 18 and up. Chick lit. It was well writen, there is an excetpt at the end, for book 2. AD

Laura Frantz never writes books that are completely predictable, and Love's Reckoning is no exception. I couldn't put the book down once I started. She is definitely one of the best authors of Christian fiction right now.

I am reading this book now and can hardly put it down and over 300 pages! Eden and Silas are great characters and keep you interested in the story line. Great free book!!

This first story of the Ballantyne Legacy Series is wonderfully written. It is full of mystery, adventure, family relationships, and love. The story is exciting and drama-filled right to the end. I highly recommend it.

Silas Ballantyne is looking to complete his final year of apprenticeship in York County, Pennsylvania before traveling Westward to open up his own ironworks and blacksmith shop. However, his master blacksmith has other ideas, mainly to marry his eldest daughter Elspeth. However, it is not the elder sister Elspeth that catches Silas' eye...it is the younger, dutiful, unassuming, kind-hearted Eden. Against his better judgement and his plans to move West, Silas finds himself ever-drawn to the quiet Eden. This affection does not sit well with either his master blacksmith or his eldest daughter and both will stop at nothing to see Silas wed to the daughter of their choice...not his.

Well written and researched. Maybe just a bit drug out.

When I first started reading it I honestly didn't think I would like it but as I pressed on I was so glad I didn't give up on it the first chapter or two. This is a very good book. It is a cliff hanger! I'm looking forward to the next one in the series. This book leaves you wanting more. TR

This is the third book I have read by this author, enjoyed it as much as the previous ones. Her characters come to life, along with the story.

What an amazing novel! A word of warning before you pick up this book…there will come a time as you are reading this story that you will be unable to put it down. You will find yourself completely unable to part yourself from the happenings of Eden Lee and Silas Ballantyne. Or, should I say, this is what happened to me. The story gripped me right from the start and at a little more than halfway through the book, I simply couldn’t put it down and devoured the rest of the story in one sitting! Laura Frantz has crafted a beautiful love story that is full of glorious highs and heart wrenching lows. I set the book down at the end and felt as if I had lived another’s lifetime. I was truly, emotionally exhausted! But, at the same time, I am now invigorated and craving the next story in The Ballantyne Legacy, Love’s Awakening (especially with the teaser chapter at the end of this book). The characters in Love’s Reckoning are so well done. I truly loved Eden and Silas and thoroughly despised Elspeth and Liege. A beautifully written story that I recommend to those who love historical romance.

It is a book well worth reading. I have just gotten the second book of this series and I am looking forward to reading it. I have enjoyed all of Laura Frantz's books.
