Book Review: Love's Reckoning by Laura Frantz

The last time I read a book by Laura Frantz, I enjoyed it, although it wasn't a story I would want to go back and read again and again. This story is soooo much better! I loved the characters and the plot twists and well... everything!

Silas Ballantyne has less than a year to finish his apprenticeship and plans to keep his head down and work hard so that he can fulfill his dream to move west and begin his new life. He has no plans for distraction or romance or anything else that might stand in his way. Unfortunately for him, Liege Lee, is a hard man to work for and intends to get everything he can from Silas, including Silas himself, by marrying him off to one of his daughters. An old tradition holds that the apprentice marries into the family of the master, and Silas soon finds himself having Elspeth pushed toward him over and over.

On the other hand, Eden Lee is sweet and seeking God, and a friendship of sorts forms between them - still there can be no romance getting in the way of Silas' plans to move west. But so many other forces are at work, and not many of them are friendly. Silas must make some hard choices about love, work and his future!
