A Lasting Impression & Kindle Fire Giveaway

This is the first title that I have read by Tamera Alexander so I wasn't sure what to expect from her, but I was very pleasently surprised to find a great work of historical fiction! 

Set in the aftermath of the Civil War, we are given the opportunity to follow a young girl who has been forced by her father to forge artwork that he was selling as "originals" to unsuspecting customers. But when things make a turn for the worse, our heroine flees to a new state and finds the home she hadn't ever had before...along with a chance to believe in herself.

I do have to say that Ms. Alexander is the QUEEN of chapter cliff-hangers!  I kept telling myself "one more chapter" only to find myself still sitting half an hour later because the girl knows how to hook a reader!! :)  The characters are totally believable, both in their lives and in their relationship to faith...the romance is sweet without being gag-inducing (which is why I typically avoid romance novels)...and the life lessons are easy to pick up and carry into my own life. I will be reading more by Tamera and I would recommend this one for anyone who likes historical fiction (...mixed with a little bit of romance...wink, wink)
