What could possibly go wrong?
There can be only one mistress of Tall Acre . . .
The American Revolution is finally over, and Sophie Menzies is starved for good news. When her nearest neighbor, General Seamus Ogilvy, finally comes home to Tall Acre, she hopes it is a sign of better days to come. But the general is now a widower with a small daughter in desperate need of a mother. Nearly destitute, Sophie agrees to marry Seamus and become the mistress of Tall Acre in what seems a safe, sensible arrangement. But when a woman from the general's past returns without warning, the ties that bind this fledgling family together will be strained to the utmost. When all is said and done, who will be the rightful mistress of Tall Acre?
The Mistress of Tall Acre by Laura Frantz was a lovely break from the real world. I easily found myself deep into the story of these characters. I loved the time period it was set in and the historical detail was great! Sophie was a character that I found easy to understand and I loved getting to know her and all the other characters. The twists and turns in The Mistress of Tall Acre are sure to have every reader not wanting to put this book down.
5 out of 5. An Afternoon Snack that was a big win for me!
I received a copy of this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review.
