Chocolate and a handsome ship captain. What more could you want in a book? Laura Frantz joins us this week to talk about her latest release, A Heart Adrift.
A Heart Adrift by Laura Frantz
A Virginia chocolatier and a privateering sea captain collide once more after a failed love affair a decade before. Will a war and a cache of regrets keep them apart? Or will a new shared vision reunite them?
It is 1755, and the threat of war with France looms over colonial York, Virginia. Chocolatier Esmée Shaw is fighting her own battle of the heart. Having reached her twenty-eighth birthday, she is reconciled to life alone after a decade-old failed love affair from which she's never quite recovered. But she longs to find something worthwhile to do with her life.
Captain Henri Lennox has returned to port after a lengthy absence, intent on completing the lighthouse in the dangerous Chesapeake Bay, a dream he once shared with Esmée. But when the colonial government asks him to lead a secret naval expedition against the French, his future is plunged into uncertainty.
Will a war and a cache of regrets keep them apart, or can their shared vision and dedication to the colonial cause heal the wounds of the past? Bestselling and award-winning author Laura Frantz whisks you away to a time fraught with peril--on the sea and in the heart--in this redemptive, romantic story.

She
was born and raised in Kentucky, living first in Ashland, Mammoth Cave, Bowling Green, and then Lexington. But her heart has always been in Berea, Madison County, the place her family has resided since the 18th-century. She came to know Christ there at the age of 12, was baptized, and spent her childhood roaming through the woods and swimming in the rivers of her books.

Her earliest memories are of the public library, standing in front of shelves filled with those little biographies of famous historical figures like Daniel Boone and George Washington and Sacajawea. She began scribbling stories at age 7 and thankfully never stopped. Her passion then and now is history and all the wonders of past centuries.

She attended college at Denison University in Ohio and also in England, living in a manor/castle and studying the American Revolution from the British perspective. Shakespeare and 18th-century literature form the backbone of her English degree. Strangely enough, she only took one creative writing class.

It was never a desire of her to be published. She simply loved to write for the sheer joy of writing – and that was enough. But as Proverbs 16:9 says, “The heart of a man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.”
