On My Nightstand - Rekindled by Tamera Alexander

Kathryn Jennings loves her husband, but longs for him to communicate and connect with her on a deeper level. His trust issues wound her, but she still welcomes him home from an extended trip. After a single day at home, he takes off for parts unknown, promising to return.

Always independent, Larson Jennings can deal with the wilderness. Yet, the dynamics of relationship escape him due to his upbringing. He sets off on a journey to protect his land, and finds himself in a situation where only God can help him.

Will they have a second chance to revive their dying marriage? Or will they be torn apart by tragedy and regrets?

Tamera Alexander does a great job with this historical novel. Set in Colorado during the 19th Century, she makes you forget 21st Century America. It held my attention, although I had to put it down when the conflict became so intense it scared me. Yet, a few minutes later, I'd pick it up because I had to see what happened next.

I've already begun another of Tamera's books. You won't want to miss this exemplary storyteller's work.
