Review: Love's Fortune by Laura Frantz


Love’s Fortune by Laura Frantz is the continuing family saga of the Ballantynes.  This is the story of Silas and Eden’s (Love’s Reckoning) grandchildren. Wren (Rowena) their granddaughter is uprooted from her simple Kentucky home when her father receives news that his mother and father are in need of him, especially due to his father’s health.  Wren is then thrust into Pittsburgh society and much is expected of her as a Ballantyne heir.  There she is reconnected with her cousins, aunts, uncles, and most of all, her beloved grandparents.  She also meets two good men, James Sackett and Malachi Cameron.  When all is said and done, will Wren choose duty or love?  With her signature storytelling, Laura Frantz brings her story alive with family secrets, beloved characters, heartrending romance, and wonderful historical detail.  I enjoyed getting to continue to read about the family that came about due to Silas and Eden’s love story.  It was very interesting to read about how the next generations turned out, given the family’s humble beginnings and who their grandparents were.  I have read all of Ms. Frantz’s books and even though the journeys her characters take can wring our hearts, her books always end properly.  I received this book from the publisher, Revell, however the opinions are my own.
