about the book

 Courting Morrow Little by Laura Frantz

Courting Morrow Little by Laura FrantzMorrow Little is haunted by the memory of the day her family was torn apart by raiding Shawnee warriors.

Now that she is nearly a grown woman and her father is ailing, she must make difficult choices about the future. Several men—ranging from the undesired to the unthinkable—vie for her attentions, but she finds herself inexplicably drawn to a forbidden love that both terrifies and intrigues her.

Can she betray the memory of her lost loved ones—and garner suspicion from her friends—by pursuing a life with him? Or should she seal her own misery by marrying a man she doesn’t love?

This sweeping tale of romance and forgiveness will envelop readers as it takes them from a Kentucky fort through the vast wilderness to the west in search of true love.

my thoughts

My first experience with this book was listening to the audiobook version. I loved the story so much that I had to switch over to ebook towards the end of the story to truly soak it in (visual is my default). Courting Morrow Little is an exceptional story and narrator Laura Jennings delivers an excellent performance. In the interest of avoiding even the slightest spoiler, I won’t comment on the deliciously complex plot.

Morrow Little is an exquisite and unforgettable character. Her life journey follows a path of physical and spiritual heartbreak, healing, tragedy, and triumph. The lessons Morrow learns about forgiveness and faith along the way profoundly touched my heart and I feel a deep kinship to her story as many of my ancestors lived in the same vicinity during this time period. 

Truly worthy of five-stars, this is a story I would happily listen to again, despite my general audiobook aversion! A few months after my first experience with the story, I found myself thinking of the characters and indulged in a reread for the pure pleasure of reliving the story. I do not doubt that Courting Morrow Little will be a story I’m drawn to time and again. I highly recommend this author’s masterful storytelling.

I purchased this ebook, borrowed the audiobook through an Audible Escape free trial, and received a print copy from the author. I was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own.

  1. Coming from you this means so very much! Love your thoughtful, insightful thoughts/review. Of all my characters, I miss Morrow & cast the most. I even remember writing certain scenes, much of it done outside in the woods. Thank you for the joy!


    1. It’s never too late to revisit a dear friend, I say the world could use more of Morrow! If they must live solely within these pages, at least we know where to find them when the longing draws us back!


  2. I read this about a month ago and loved it so much! It will be on my favorites list of this year for sure. It’s the first Laura Frantz book I’ve read and can’t wait to read more!!
