Author: Laura Frantz
Release Date: January 4, 2022
A second chance romance written by a master at historical fiction? Yes, please!
Esmee Shaw lives a content life in York, Virginia as a chocolatier. She has been courted in the past, but the romance failed and she has yet to find someone that she would prefer to spend the remaining years of her life with. Now twenty-eight, she wishes that she could find some meaning in her life.
Captain Henri Lennox has never gotten over his romance with Esmee Shaw. Now back in Virginia, he focuses on restoring the lighthouse that was one their shared vision. But when his government calls on him to enter the war against France, will he be able to restore their relationship before it’s too late?
There are two things that happen like clockwork every January: A New Year and a new Laura Frantz novel! If you love reading about colonial America, Frantz is an author that you need to read. Her research of this time period is unmatched by any I’ve found. Coupled with fictional and real characters, her stories weaver together the strands of remembered history with characters that you can’t help but cheer on through their hardships and troubles. I never tire of her stories and this one will stay on the shelf for another peek in the future.
