Once again Tamera Alexander has written a wonderful story. What a great idea to have a female photographer on her own in such a time as this. I felt I was right there with the characters and experienced what they did.
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
