If you've never had opportunity to delve into the lyrical beauty of Laura Frantz's historical romances, you MUST try to get your hands on one ASAP. Laura's novels carry with them a poetic and descriptive elegance which draws the readers into the throes of history and a passion of intertwined lives.
Laura's heroines are written with three dimensional depth, each growing through the stories and with the powerful heroes she writes.
So - with that in mind, let's see what Laura has to say about heroines.
Who has been one of your favorite heroines to read?
Oh, this is like asking me to choose between Reese’s Cups and Hershey’s Almond Bars! Can I name two favorite heroines? Christy in Catherine Marshall’s Christy is a fav because she went into the wild woods and fell for a handsome if cantankerous Scottish doctor and carved out a meaningful, if often uncomfortable, life for herself in Tennessee. And then there is Valancy Stirling of L. M. Montgomery’s The Blue Castle and her handsome Barney Snaith aka John Foster and their little cabin in the woods. Barney is not a Scotsman (not that I remember) but he’ll do. Lots of wooing and angst in that one...
Oh Laura, I LOVE Christy!! what a great choice. (and how can you go wrong with a Scot, right?)
Who has been one of your favorite heroines to write?
I have to say Roxanna Rowan – or Roxie as I think of her.
And WHY was she your favorite to write?
Because she was brave enough to take on Colonel McLinn despite his being a tormented, intimidating soul.And also because she was a blend of gentleness and strength despite having T.S.T.L. moments. Of all my heroes, I think the colonel would have been the most tempting to kiss, cribbage game or no! So Roxie wins, hands down.
