First Line Friday (#1) – The Frontiersman’s Daughter



Happy Friday!  Welcome to First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books! This week I’m highlighting a book from my January TBR pile.

This week’s book selection is: The Frontiersman’s Daughter by Laura Frantz.



Kentucke, Indian Territory, 1777

“In the fading lavender twilight, at the edge of a clearing, stood half a dozen Shawnee warriors.”

About The Frontiersman’s Daughter

One woman searches for love—and herself—in a wild land.

LOVELY AND HIGH-SPIRITED, Lael Click is the daughter of a celebrated frontiersman. Haunted by her father’s ties to the Shawnee Indians and her family’s past, Lael comes of age in the fragile Kentucky settlement her father founded. As she faces the many trials of life on the frontier, Lael draws strength from the rugged land. But the arrival of a handsome doctor threatens her view of her world, her God, and herself. Can the power of grace and redemption break through in this tumultuous place?

This epic novel gives you a glimpse into the simple yet daring lives of the pioneers who first crossed the Appalachians, all through the courageous eyes of a determined young woman who would not be defeated.

  1. I’m featuring lines from Lacey Black’s upcoming release Love and Pancakes on my bog today.

    “I’m sorry, miss, but you won’t be able to get in there for a few days. Not until after the fire marshal has completed his investigation and ruled out arson,” the fire chief states, a look of pity mixed with soot smeared on his aged face.

    Happy Reading!


  2. Ahh. An oldie but a goodie 🙂

    I’m featuring a non-fiction book on my blog this week–A Light So Lovely (about Madeleine L’Engle)–but I’m also about to dive into Stratagem by Robin Caroll, so here’s the first line:

    “According to your estimation, she has eight minutes to figure out she can’t open the door unless her employee uses the key he got in the last room.”

    Have a great weekend!
