Author: Laura Frantz
Genre: Historical Romance
Though Magnus MacLeish and Lark MacDougall grew up on the same castle grounds, Magnus is now laird of the great house and the Isle of Kerrera. Lark is just the keeper of his bees--and the woman who could provide an elixir to help his ailing wife conceive and bear him an heir. But when his wife dies suddenly, Magnus and Lark find themselves caught up in a whirlwind of accusations, expelled from their beloved island, and sold as indentured servants across the Atlantic. Can they make a new beginning in this New World? Or will their hopes be dashed against the rocky coastline of the Virginia colony?
Laura Frantz's prose sparkles with authenticity as she digs into her own family history to share this breathless tale of love, exile, and courage in colonial America.
Reviewer: Laura J. Davis
Whenever I see a book with Laura Frantz's name on it, I know it will be good. A Bound Heart did not disappoint me.
I will admit the author had me wondering who the love interest for Lark MacDougall was in this book. But only for a few chapters and I loved how she kept me guessing! In the end though, it is clear, that Lark and Magnus are meant to be together, but their riveting story is fraught with heartache and when it is finally over, you feel bereft that the characters are gone.
The author's vivid descriptions of scenery, combined with her well developed characters, made this story one I was unable to put down. I highly recommend it!
