"Making an impressive debut, Alexander has written a charming historical romance that features well-drawn characters and smooth, compelling storytelling." (Library Journal)
I just love everything that Tamera Alexander writes and this was no exception. What a wonderful story. Loved it.
Absolutely one of the best books I've ever read! Great story line as well as fast moving action!
this was a good clean read! I really loved the story but it was one of those books that nothing happened the way I would have had them happen, which is good and bad. Good because I was surprised but bad because it was frustrating! Tamera Alexander is a very good writer and I did enjoy this book even if things didn't happen how I would have thought.
I'm addicted to Audible. May need an intervention!
The story was ok, but the narrator! Uugh! At times laughable, at times painful! I recommend the Kindle version.
I have never read a book like this. I like this author, but was hesitant to try this one because I assumed it would be dull. I couldn't put it down. I was riveted from the first moment.
I plan to read the others in this series.
I love it when a book brings an excellent plot, great characters and a well written manuscript to the reader. This pg13 passionate story tells Kathryn's journey of loosing her husband but finding God's gift so much better. There are no gaps in this book. It's one of my favorites. The prayers and scripture are used in such a real life way that it strengthens the reader's faith.
I loved this book by Tamera. although I did get mad at Larson several times for thinking bad about his wife. I know that was the authors way of keeping us engaged in the book. I can't wait to read the next one.
Yes, I enjoyed it thoroughly. Ms. Alexander writes amazing stories.
The faith Catherine had to someday find Lawson.
It touched my heart and brought tears to my eyes several times.
I am looking forward to reading the whole series.
You feel as though you know the characters and it's easy to get drawn into the story.
I'd rather read the Kindle version. I think Barbara has potential as a narrator - her accents are good and she does a fair job of changing voices for different characters. What I'm struggling with is how stilted her reading is - especially when reading the parts between the "voices." She is so careful to enunciate her words clearly that the reading is stilted and slow and just doesn't flow. It detracts from the story.I tried changing to 1.25 speed to see if that was better, but it was even more irritating. I will continue with the audiobook (there have been others that I've ditched, switching to the book instead), but I'm VERY hesitant to buy another audiobook with her as the narrator. On the other hand, there are a few times where she seems to get into the story that she's reading a bit more and seems to flow with the story better, so that it's no longer so distracting...so she may develop into a better narrator in time.
