A Lasting Impression

Recently I finished reading another book by one of my all-time favorite Christian authors, Tamera Alexander. As always when I read her books, I was again reminded of why she is one of my VERY favorite authors! A Lasting Impression is a wonderfully written historical novel set in a real place: The Belmont Mansion in Nashville, Tennessee. The story takes place after the Civil War, as the nation is still healing amidst reminders of the terrible war. Tamera Alexander has an amazing writing talent that makes the reader feel as if you're really there---walking among the characters of the story, and viewing the gorgeous Belmont Mansion with your very own eyes! ~ I don't want to give any details away, but if you're a fan of historical fiction, be sure and read A Lasting Impression. Now I'm eager to read the other books coming out in this series!

Hi CatMom :) I love Tamera Alexander's books. I have not purchased that one yet. Have you read Liz Curtis Higgs "Here Burns My Candle" or Laura Frantz "The Colonel's Lady? They are awesome also! I hope all is well with you. :)

Thanks for stopping by, precious Sue! ~ No, I haven't read those 2 books you mentioned, but I plan on reading them! I only wish I was a "faster reader" LOL!
Sending a big hug to you! :) Blessings, Patti Jo
