An Uncommon Woman by Laura Frantz

I’ve read every book that Laura Frantz has written, so of course An Uncommon Woman was on my list. This story captured the difficult reality of living on the frontier and each character goes through their fair share of struggles.

In Tessa we find a heroine who has never known life outside of the rough, vast wilderness. Threats of attack and death always seem to be hovering on the peripheries and it lends both a strength and a heaviness to her character. Clay is a rugged, thoughtful man who you can’t help falling in love with. His slow pursuit of Tessa feels true to what you might have found actually occurring between a couple in the wilds of 18th century Virginia.

This book is by no means a fast-paced, edge of your seat read, but I think that was an intentional choice by the author. It suits the pace of life that you get immersed in within these pages.

Although I can’t say that An Uncommon Woman has become a favorite, it is certainly one for the keeper shelf. Recommended to all those who love a good frontier love story.

⭐️ 7.5/10 ⭐️
