Book three in the Fountain Creek Chronicles Series rewards readers with as delightful a tale as each of the other two. But be warned. You may find a yearning in your heart to travel to old gold mining towns and look for the friends you meet within these pages.Veronique Girard, born and raised in high society France travels to the Colorado Territory to carry out her mothers death-bed wish. Find her father, a man she barely remembers but whose love has filled her heart all of her life. As she travels into the mountains in search of him, she meets and cares for people whom she never would have associated in France. In the pieces of her life that she struggle to put back together, her faith is challenged as all of her values get remolded.Jack Brennan returns to Fountain Creel to settle down. Delivering supplies to the gold mining communities is a tough job, but one he is prepared to do. He is not, however, prepared to escort the lovely Veronique Girard to these towns in search of her father.Neither of them expect the plans their Heavenly Father has in bringing them together for the present and the future. The rugged Colorado mountains, rough miners and difficult western life are nothing when pitted against the love of God for His children and the love of man and woman. This book is a beautiful journey into our history and the lives of two people who surmounted lifes tragedies to find joy. You will have to remind yourself Jack and Veronique are characters for you can surely feel their hearts as you read. And, if you are quiet, you may even hear the clip-clop of horses hooves as the stage coach enters town.
Top quality inspirational fiction!Vronique Girard must learn to follow Gods leading in her life, but she cannot do so until she realizes her own weakness. Jack Brennan has reconciled himself to the hurts of his past by closing himself to the possibilities for the future. Through trusting God, Vronique and Jack each discover what God wants them to learn about themselves, but will they submit to His leading and make the necessary changes?Once again, Tamera Alexander presents a touching story of two hearts that become one by learning contentment and finding healing through Gods grace. Alexander brings a fresh style to Christian fiction through sharply defined characters, picturesque phrases, and a tightly woven plot. Colorful secondary characters, such as Jake Sampson, Lilly Carlson, and Miss Maudie add a touch of whimsy to the storys development. Alexanders first series has proven her writing skill, and I look forward to her second series with Bethany.
I LOVE this book! I couldn't help but fall in love with the characters who were so human. The plot was captivating and very emotional. Tamera Alexander uses so much detail in her books which makes them a joy to read. I am eagerly waiting for her next book.
A mother's dying request finds Frenchwoman, Veronique Girard, making an arduous journey across the Atlantic to the Colorado Territory in search of the father she has grieved for all her life.Jack Brennan believes it is time to leave behind his memories and his work as a trail guide and settle down in Willow Springs. His new work as a freighter demands a strong and well crafted wagon but when he discovers his commissioned wagon has been sold to another bidder, a foreign woman no less, hitting the road again suddenly has more appeal.Tamera Alexander has created another wonderful historical tale, rich in detail with characters full of life and heart. Veronique and Jack's relationship is beautifully drawn as they attempt to carve out new lives in the fledgling township of Willow Springs. Readers will enjoy cameo appearances by many of Tamera's characters from Rekindled and Revealed. Tamera continues to pen stories that are poignant, enthralling and downright enjoyable and Remembered is no exception. I look forward to From A Distance, the first in Tamera's Timber Ridge Reflections, releasing mid 2008.
Tamera does it again! All three of the books in this trilogy are fantastic. I love her style of addressing more intensive topics, but with well thought out wording and discretion. Can't wait to read her next book. I'm also thrilled about her RITA award for "Revealed" (book two in this same series).
