I'm almost halfway through the book at this point and carry it with me everywhere. I've got two other books in various stages of completion (reading), but I grab this one when I have a spare moment. That should say something about how involved I am in the story.
Here's the scenario:
1. Ridley Cooper, Southern man. fights for the Union - then returns home.
2. Olivia Aberdeen, a Southern woman, ostracized because of her late husband's dealings with the North.
While my favorite genre is action/suspense, these characters have me wrapped around their pinkies. Tamera Alexander knows how to appeal to readers with deep emotion, impossible odds, and real-world problems.
Five stars for this one, folks!
Writers and readers: What's on your nightstand these days?
Hi Susan - historical romantic novels are fun reads and we can learn much about different places ... my nightstand - just about every book I own!! Way too many ... cheers Hilary
This one sounds yummy! I prefer historical or light romance, but also like encouraging, faith-building non-fiction.
On my nightstand is a mystery set in the 40's, which my husband and I read at night before we go to bed.
Hi Hilary -
I enjoy historical romance as well. It takes dry textbook stuff and wraps it in flesh and blood people.
Hi Jeanette - You'd love this one, Jen!
