Author Tamera Alexander is one of my very, very favorite Christian authors, and I'm always happy to recommend her books. In August she released the third book in her Belle Meade Plantation series, To Wager Her Heart. I was very honored to do a reader endorsement for this book and highly recommend it. After reading this touching story, I decided this was my favorite of all the Tamera Alexander books - - and I've read AND loved them ALL!
Set in Nashville, Tennessee in 1871, the story follows Alexandra Jamison and Sylas Rutledge, two people with very different backgrounds. As I read this love story set amidst actual history, my heart tugged with emotion and I didn't want to stop reading. The author has done an AMAZING job of weaving fictional characters and events with real ones - - a true gift!
If you enjoy historical romance, you will absolutely love this story. Even though this is a stand-alone book, I also recommend reading the first two books in the Belle Meade series too - - you will not be disappointed!
