In 1779, when a ragtag group of women lands at the door of Fort Endeavor on the Kentucky frontier, Colonel Cassius McLinn has no choice but to take them in. He's immediately drawn to the Virginian spinster Roxanna Rowan. Rich writing evokes the historic period and the conflicted yet growing love between McLinn and Roxanna. Narrator Laura Jennings's use of accents and pacing brings the various characters to life, moving deftly from the twang of the Kentucky soldiers to the pensive cadence of Roxanna and brusque Irish brogue of McLinn--quite a cast of characters to keep distinct. The production of this audiobook is strong, and Jennings's pace carries the listener through. K.M. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2017]
