Short Book Description:

On a bitter December day in 1784, Silas Ballantyne arrives at the door of blacksmith Liege Lee in York County, Pennsylvania. Silas is determined to finish his apprenticeship quickly and move west. But because he is a fast worker and a superb craftsman, Liege endeavors to keep him in York by appealing to an old tradition: the apprentice shall marry one of his master’s beautiful daughters.

Eden is as gentle and fresh as Elspeth is high-spirited and cunning. But are they truly who they appear to be? In a house laced with secrets, each sister seeks to secure her future. Which one will claim Silas’s heart–and will he agree to Liege’s arrangement?

In this sweeping family saga, one man’s choices in love and work, in friends and enemies, set the stage for generations to come. This is the Ballantyne Legacy.

My Thoughts:

I loved this book from the beginning to the end. Although I had never read any of Laura Frantz’ books before, I was excited to get my hands on this book and read it.

When Eden finds out that her father has located a new apprentice for his blacksmith work, she is worried about how it will turn out. She knows that all previous apprentices never lingered long under their roof.

Another part of the agreement is that the new apprentice must marry either Eden or her sister Elspeth. This was not something that Eden looked forward to until she meets the apprentice, Silas. A young Scots man who is handsome, courteous, and even plays the fiddle.

To know the rest you will have to read the book. I won’t tell you more. I love this book and hope that you get it and enjoy it as much as I did.
