There were some scenes of the couple making love which were a little steamer than I prefer. I choose to skim past those. I can see that these could be offensive to some readers. But these make up only a few pages and the rest of the book is well worth reading past those scenes.
To Win Her Favor was written post civil war era and presented a wonderful perspective of the reconstruction period in the south. Tamera Alexander shares the racism that existed back then regarding not only the blacks but also the Irish. Her characters were very believable as they were portrayed as flawed humans with a sin nature.
I read To Win her Favor because I had received a copy of “To Wager Her Heart” and I wanted to make sure I read the series in order. I first read To Whisper Her Name was equally fantastic. It would be very easy to read these books out of order and still enjoy every single page. But wow- I suggest reading the entire series starting with To Whisper her Name. The first book introduces the reader to several of the characters. I can’t wait to read the final in the series “To Wager Her Heart” and then “To Mend a Dream” which continues telling the story of one of the characters.
First of all, the pros:
*Her writing is exquisite, as always. The pictures she paints in my mind are so vivid and beautiful...but this is also a con (see below).
*The story was very interesting and was full of many likable characters whose fates were all intertwined.
*I always like stories about women who were a little "ahead of their time" and how they coped.
*There are mentions of other characters of hers from previous books and I always enjoy when a writer makes her own little world of people. Uncle Bob, ohhh I'm happy to meet him again.
*She's great a painting vivid pictures with words...which is why I found some of her romance scenes too much for me. I understand the characters are married when the romance kicks in, but I don't read Christian fiction to be able to picture two people making love in my head. I was a bit shocked at first because I don't recall any of her other books being so explicit. Sure, they had steamy, heart-fluttering moments, but nothing like giving you a play-by-play of all their foreplay. This is one of the reasons I stopped reading Deanne Gist novels (who I loved at the beginning too) but her romance scenes were more than what I like to read. With that being said, this is one book I am not going to keep in the house for my two girls to discover when they hit their teen years!
I actually stopped about 2/3 of the way through after the third love scene and just skimmed through to see how it ended. That makes me so sad, because this is Tamera Alexander...
*The story did seem to lag in some parts too, and some scenes I could not figure out how they really played into the larger story. The only thing I can figure is that it is a set-up for another Belle Meade novel (thinking the Savannah Darby character?).
All that being said, this is not my favorite of hers at all. I'm a bit disappointed. I can't say that I dislike it altogether because I really enjoy reading her writing, but I do hope her future novels are a bit cleaner. I guess that makes me a prude, but hey! that's just my personal preference. If this review is helpful to you in anyway, then I'm glad. If not, please move on to the next =).
Other reviewers said this book has explicit sexual content. It doesn't. It is steamier than your average inspirational romance novels (The main characters are married.), but definitely not explicit.
