About the Book: 

Love's Reckoning, Ballantyne Legacy Series #1   -     
        By: Laura Frantz

On a bitter December day in 1784, Silas Ballantyne arrives at the door of blacksmith Liege Lee in York County, Pennsylvania. Silas is determined to finish his apprenticeship quickly and move west. But because he is a fast worker and a superb craftsman, Liege endeavors to keep him in York by appealing to an old tradition: the apprentice shall marry one of his master's beautiful daughters.

Eden is as gentle and fresh as Elspeth is high-spirited and cunning. But are they truly who they appear to be? In a house laced with secrets, each sister seeks to secure her future. Which one will claim Silas's heart--and will he agree to Liege's arrangement?

In this sweeping family saga, one man's choices in love and work, in friends and enemies, set the stage for generations to come. This is the Ballantyne Legacy.

My Review:

Love's Reckoning is a wonderful love story full of hope, despair, secrets, and faith. I loved each page as it was a "Just one more chapter" kind of book. I cannot wait for book 2 which should be out later this year.

Every part of this book was rich with detail painting a clear picture for the reader. The scenery, clothing, and everything in between was perfectly captured by author Laura Frantz's exquisite writing. 

The characters had their good or bad qualities making you cheer for them or despising them. Well, I was despising a few. You hope the two with like mannerisms with be paired together but are left wondering when circumstances lead a different direction. This story was a tangled mess of emotions as it takes on new turns all throughout the book. 

This is a story you don't want to pass up!
