あらすじ・解説

Unflinching and plainspoken, Tessa Swan is not your typical 18th-century woman. Born and bred on the Western Virginia frontier along with her five brothers, she is a force to be reckoned with.

Quiet and courageous, Clay Tygart is not your typical 18th-century man. Raised by Lenape Indians, he returns a hero from the French and Indian War to the fort that bears his name, bringing with him Tessa's long-lost friend, Keturah, a redeemed Indian captive like himself.

Determined to avoid any romantic entanglements as fort commander, Clay remains aloof whenever he encounters the lovely Tessa. But when she is taken captive by the tribe Clay left, his hand - and heart - are forced, leading to one very private and one very public reckoning.

Intense, evocative, and laced with intricate historical details that bring the past to life, An Uncommon Woman will transport you to the picturesque and dangerous Western Virginia mountains of 1770.

A wonderful story of friendship!

I really enjoy listening to stories about my ancestors. I am part Shawnee and Cherokee.
My heart goes out to both the Indians and the settles who paved the way for us today. I really liked the story. At times I felt it was to wordy but then I allowed myself to be lost in the pictures that were being painted. The narrator was extremely good and brought to life the characters of each individual.

Stay with it even when it’s kinda boring

I was getting tired of the shy coy flirting of some main characters and almost returned it. But I stayed with it and it got real interesting I’m very surprised the narrator who is native English speaker mispronounced several words that she should have known how to pronounce. I do appreciate the cleanest of the book. No profanity or
Gratuitous sex scenes I will read more from this novelist

Wonderfully done. I felt like I was there.

This is a dramatic portrait of the heartache and hardships endured by the early settlers in Virginia Indian territory. The Swan family struggles to maintain their homestead and keep the family safe from attacks, kidnappings, or worse. Nearby Fort Tygart, run by Colonel Clayton Tygart is their only refuge.

Part history, part adventure, part love story, this is a wonderful story of faith, friendship, and perseverance during wild, adventurous time in the history of America. History buffs, in particular, will enjoy this story.

I listened to the audio version and narrator, Aimee Lilly, did a wonderful job with the many characters in this story. A real delight to listen to.

Beautiful Historic Story

Laura Frantz brings frontier life alive like no other author. I loved Tessa and Clay, and I thought Aimee Lilly did a wonderful job with the narration. Highly recommended.

It was pretty good!

Good historical content which is my number one thing. Audible is not clear what books are Christian and I keep getting books and later finding they’re Christian which is not my number one thing. But sometimes I got swept up in the Swan family as though I was sitting at the dinner table with them and I really loved that! Many outbursts of Oh no! Or yay!

One of my favorite authors

The narrative is spot on and actually adds to the story. I love reading about the people that lived in that era. The challenges they faced were incredible but they handled them with faith and humor. This is a book I've listened to many times.

A Courtship to be Admired ❤️

An Uncommon Woman was a breath of fresh air as far as romance novels go. It was the perfect balance of love, suspense, friendship, faith, and adventure as the characters over come the hardships of Frontier life.

Tessa and Clay are relatable and give a picture of what finding a life partner should look like.

Aimee Lilly did a fantastic job of capturing the voice of each character.

If you are looking for a historical romantic novel that doesn’t make you cringe from reading gaudy, scandalous, and over sexualized prose, look no further.

I’m looking forward to reading/listening to more by Laura Frantz!
