More About the Author
I write Southern historical fiction/romance set in post-Civil War Nashville, and also Colorado Territory historicals set in the wilds and grandeur of the Rocky Mountains where I lived for over seventeen years. At the heart of each of my books is a female and male protagonist at crucial turning points in their lives. As each story unfolds as I write, I take the couple's journey with them--and hope you'll enjoy taking each of these journeys too.
I live in Nashville, Tennessee, with my husband--not far from the antebellum mansions about which I write--and with Jack, our sweet little Silky Terrier. My husband and I have two grown children who live nearby as well, which makes life pretty wonderful.
My next release, the third book in the Belmont series, publishes fall 2016, and is the last standalone novel in the Belmont Mansion series set, of course, right here in Nashville, TN at the famous Belmont Mansion built in 1853. I'm currently writing the third book in the Belle Meade Plantation series, which will release spring 2017.
With all the books out there to read, thanks for reading mine!

Top Customer Reviews
The developing relationship between Elizabeth and Daniel crackles with energy as they each face their fears and shortcomings to drop their facades and be the people God intended them to be. The secondary characters are well developed, particularly Josiah, a former slave whose story is just as engrossing as that of the main characters.
From A Distance is a wonderful beginning to the Timber Ridge Reflections series. I look forward to the next book, and many more from this talented author!
As we follow Elizabeth Westbrook in her quest to become the first female photojournalist of the Washington Chronicle, we meet Daniel Ranslett and Josiah Birch. Daniel, a hunter, is a private man who keeps to himself. His withdrawal from city life is obviously fueled by a regrettable past that we only get glimpses of as he struggles with painful memories. Josiah, a former slave, wrestles with his own demons and losses. And even though he is now a free man, thanks to the Civil War, he is still disregarded and looked down upon by many people.
When Elizabeth finds out that Daniel is exactly the person she needs to help her in her quest for breathtaking pictures of the great Colorado territory, she does all she can to convince him to help her in her journey. Daniel, feeling only slightly responsible for ruining one of the pictures Elizabeth had taken on her quest, begrudgingly agrees to take her hunting so she can photograph the wildlife.
And of course, that is where it all begins. Sparks ignite between Daniel and Elizabeth. And even though they both are slow on the uptake, it's not long before they both realize there is more between them then the Colorado Wilderness.
I really enjoyed FROM A DISTANCE, once the pace picked up. I thought the characters were fascinating and multi-dimensional. Josiah, was a wonder third character, and Elizabeth and Daniel made for a great heroine and hero. I look forward to reading the next installment in the series.
Sadly, I had to make myself push to the end of this one but it won't stop me from reading Tamera Alexander's other books. I would highly recommend her Fountain Creek Chronicles series.
