From a Distance really held my attention
None of us travels through life unscarred and I enjoy reading a character who has who has deep roots in life. In Tamera Alexander creates characters that are so real that you live right along with them sharing their horrors and their hopes.
I love historical fiction almost as much as I love a story that holds my attention. If I'm not engaged in the first few chapters I usually set the book aside. I spent a couple of short evenings with From a Distance, just enough to know I wanted to continue. Last night I intended to read only a few more chapters but was never inclined to put the book down. When I read the last page and then looked at my watch it was 4:17 AM...I'd been completely engrossed in From a Distance all night long. It's a good read; well written, well researched and most engaging. You're sure to enjoy From a Distance

A Wonderful Read
This is a great story that holds the reader from beginning to end. It has everything - drama, tragedy, romance, humor... and the author brings it all together wonderfully.
Time and again, she creates what seems to be an impossible situation, then she pulls you back from the edge without compromising the story line.
This author tackles some difficult issues and it pays off. This is a wonderful read. I look forward to reading more from this Tamera Alexander

A good read!
I enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading book 2. Though not overly exciting, it was completely enjoyable as the story line easily draws you in. My favorite part was when Elizabeth and Daniel meet. (Read it, you'll see.)
I felt the Tamera did an excellent job with the characters. They were well thought out and easy to like. Miss Elizabeth has some spiritual growing that needs to take place and Mr. Daniel needs to let go of the past and hand it over to God. The journey the two take together brings them closer to Him.
From a Distance has much of what I enjoy in books; romance, heartache, mystery, and beautiful scenery. I love how author Tamera Alexander always seems to have the perfect way of describing the land while not going overboard. I would love to see the Colorado Rockies after reading this book.
If you are looking for something to take your mind off what has happened earlier today, I would recommend this book. There's nothing better then going back in time and taking an incredible journey. Why not start with From a Distance?
