Today I am reviewing “Love’s Fortune,” by Laura Frantz, book three in the “Ballantyne Legacy” trilogy. I received this title free of charge from the publisher through the “Revell Reads” program. My end of the deal involves writing this post, which will contain nothing less than my candid feelings about this release.
This episode features Rowena “Wren” Ballantyne, a woman raised in a quiet Kentucky hamlet, far removed from Pittsburgh high society. When her father is summoned back into the family fold, Wren accompanies him, finding herself unwittingly swept into a world of balls, gowns, and gossip. Can she somehow navigate in place where position supersedes passion at every turn? Will she make the “proper” match some of her upper crust relatives demand, or will she follow God’s leading to discover a husband who values her for more than the dowry she possesses?
If you like your Christian historical romance laced with a lot of tension and touch of intrigue, you have found a perfect fit with this drama. Technically, each volume can be read independently of each other, but I endorse all three, with “Love’s Fortune” providing a satisfying conclusion to a spectacular saga. These stories have a solid biblical basis, and would be appropriate for all to listen to, but I think people twelve years and older will be most spell bound. This is perfect for fans waiting for the new Julie Lessman or Karen Witemeyer tale. If you’re so inclined, the order is as follows:
