Pleasantly surprised

I have never read a Tamera Alexander book before but definitely will be again. She creates a perfect mix of history, romance and intriguing characters. The setting for the story is so beautifully described I wish I could see it myself.

Lovely Read
4 stars By Jessica R Wakefield, Apr 02 2013
 This is my first Tamera Alexander book and I loved it. She effortlessly weaves the majestic Rocky Mountains of Colorado bringing them to life through the eyes of her beautifully drawn characters. After reading the first few chapters, I cam to a solid conclusion. Tamera Alexander does the two things I really want in books and she does them well - more than well - she does them beautifully. 

Tamera has well drawn and interesting characters - Daniel and Elizabeth as well as all the others are infused with life giving traits that make them real. I don't like all the characters, or even all of what Elizabeth and Daniel do at times, but they are real. 

The second thing I love is the inclusion of the setting. So many books I have read lately seem to pay less attention to the setting of the story. To me if an author is taking the trouble to set their story somewhere interesting, beautiful etc they need to take the time to show their readers this place. This is what Tamera Alexander does. The Rocky Mountains felt real to me, as if I was there right next to her characters watching the same scene.

The pace of the book was slow but engaging at the same time. Elizabeth and Daniel are strong characters who are driven by expectations and past experiences which leads them to clash a fair bit. Elizabeth is fairly like able and the spiritual growth she goes through is honest and believable (she really needed to do some spiritual growing). Daniel is a man battling his past in the war and his desire to preserve the land God created out here in the Rockies. It is a pleasure to watch these two grow closer together and to God.

I truly enjoyed this book and was very glad that my sister had given me The Timber Ridge Trilogy for Christmas 2011. I read all 3 books in four days!

Tamera you have won yourself a new fan!

Poignant and Masterful
5 stars By Maxine, Jan 13 2013
Tamera Alexander has created a poignant read - beautifully written and emotionally charged.
Her leading lady is strong and ambitious, yet flawed - which we all can relate to. The male, realistic, endearing, and artistically created in such a way that I'm certain I'd like to meet him!
Like a good fire, the storyline started small and slowly built to an all out bonfire - captivating with its written imagery, with endearing and sometimes intriguing supporting characters. It was a well researched read, tugging on heart strings and engaging the reader.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and am looking forward to others in the series.
