Romance Historical | Inspirational Historical

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 but the keeper of his bees and the woman he is hoping will provide a tincture that might 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. Yet even when all hope seems dashed against the rocky coastline of the Virginia colony, it may be that in this New World the two of them could make a new beginning--together.

Laura Frantz's prose sparkles with authenticity and deep feeling as she digs into her own family history to share this breathless tale of love, exile, and courage in Colonial America.

Re: A Bound Heart

I would love to travel to see my daughter in Dallas. Her Hubby got a new
job and she is house hunting today!

I have read reviews of A Bound Heart and have been looking
forward to reading it. Thanks for the opportunity to win a
couple and for the yummy shortbread recipe too!

My hope is to travel to the Dry Tortugas National Park for the incredible
dark skys and quiet. Maybe I’ll take some of that shortbread with me too.
It sounds incredible!

I would love to travel to Australia this year.
Bonnie H 10:57pm January 18, 2019)

I love to travel and shortbread is my favorite treat

I would love to visit Australia

How wonderful that you have family history to draw upon for inspiration for your
books. Situations changed so rapidly for people in the past. Much faster than
they tend to do today, and there was so little recourse to rectify the situations.
We are planning a trip cross country to Alaska and back. It will be the third
summer we have planned the trip. Medical issues bumped us out the past two
years. We have our fingers crossed it won't happen again. We have a few
short trips planned for March to Williamsburg, VA, and to Charleston, SC in
April. We are going to conferences in both places. Both are only 5 to 7 hours
from home. Next year we hope to go to Scotland, Ireland, and England.

thanks you for the chance to win

I have wanted to travel to Holland every since I read about the country in my fifth grade Geography book about 80 years ago and my second choice would be Ireland, the home of some of my ancestors. I'm not sure either would look as good as my imagination.
Anna Speed 1:43pm January 20, 2019)

sounds like a really good book,love the cover too
Vickie Couturier 6:16pm January 20, 2019)

we are planning our trip for the summer to the beach.

Sounds like a snippet taken from Outlander series which finds Claire and Jaime in the new colonies
