Sophie Menzies is desperate for good news after the Revolutionary War is finally over. When her neighbor, General Seamus Ogilvy returns, she hopes that he might have the news she needs. He is now a widower with a young daughter. To solve both of their problems, Seamus proposes they marry and she accepts. Can they move past the safe, sensible arrangement they have to find a love to carry them through the hardships they face?
"The Mistress of Tall Acre" by Laura Frantz is set after the conclusion of the Revolutionary War. I have not read many books set in that time period and found it to be interesting. I had a hard time putting it down and wanted to read faster so that I could know what was going to happen. Sophie and Seamus were realistic and fleshed out. I felt their frustrations and disappointments. There were twists and turns in the story plot that I did not anticipate and it kept me guessing.
The book was well written and easy to read. There were the occasional historical term that I didn't recognize, but it didn't take away from the story as you could figure out the meaning from context or look it up if you wanted.
