A Bound Heart - Book Review

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.


My Thoughts
Laura Frantz never disappoints
and her latest book A Bound Heart
is truly a winner.
Laura has an eye for detail
and that attention flows through to her writing.
When I began reading this heartwarming tale,
the words were like artwork. . .
they were a feast for the eyes
that brought beautiful images to the mind.
With the lyrical Scottish words
and the talent of Laura's writing
well, you're bound to be captivated by this book.

A Bound Heart will take you 
on an epic and unforgettable journey.
Lark and Magnus face many hardships,
but love, hope, faith, and grace will prevail.

One of my favorites things was the delightful quotes 
at the beginning of each chapter.
Here are just a few to give you a taste
of A Bound Heart.

A gaudy dress and gentle air
may slightly touch the heart,
but 'tis innocence and modesty
that polishes the dart.
- - Robert Burns - -

I find as I grow older
that I love those most
whom I loved first.
- - Thomas Jefferson - -

The true measure of a man
is how he treats someone
who can do him absolutely no good.
- - Samuel Johnson - -

I highly recommend this book
especially if you enjoy and appreciate historical fiction.
Laura Frantz is an extraordinary storyteller
and you will not be disappointed if you add
A Bound Heart to your library.
