An Uncommon Woman #ourgoodlifebooklist

I was given this novel for free in exchange for my honest review.

I adore historical fiction, especially historical Christian fiction.  Introducing An Uncommon Woman by Laura Frantz.

This book brings 1770 to life like it was back in Virginia. Using vivid imagery, Ms. Frantz creates characters that are more real than some of the people in this world today.  I have always been interested in books that talk about living in a fort, preparing for disaster should it occur.  This is a real depiction of how it was back then. This is well researched.

Speaking of characters, Tessa is sweet and kind, and definitely female.  Her desire to have a petticoat made in a certain way speaks of her feminine side. Clay's caring for the entire Swan family shows that he is strong and understands the bond between family.  Their dialogue is authentic and seems genuine.  Both are engaging with personal inner turmoil, yet are able to step outside their own issues to concentrate and help others.

This is a book that you should sit back and take some time to enjoy.  Find a comfortable chair, a cuppa peppermint tea and read deeply. You won't regret it.
