I have loved Tamera Alexander's books from the very first one I picked up...so I had high expectations for this new book.

I was NOT let down! This is a fabulous book set during the Reconstruction Era following the Civil War. I was hooked from the first chapter and I hated having to put it down to do something as useless as housework! LOL! As usual, Tamera Alexander uses vivid descriptions to paint pictures of a glorious southern plantation and it's surroundings. As usual, the main character has great spunk and shows such growth in her Christian Faith journey.

My favorite line of the book was "Would you paint if you knew you were only painting for me"--how many times do we get caught in wanting recognition for something we've done in this material world--only to forget that it's all just fleeting and it's what our Heavenly Father thinks that matters the most.

A book with a great message and full of nice chuckles!

I can't wait to see more in the series set at Belmont Mansion!
