Within My Heart by Tamera Alexander


Widow Rachel Boyd struggles to keep her ranch afloat and provide for her two young sons, though some days it feels as though her efforts are sabotaged at every turn. When her cattle come down with disease and her sons' lives are endangered, she must turn to Rand Brookston, Timber Ridge's physician and reluctant veterinarian. While Rachel appreciates his help, she squelches any feelings she might have for Rand--her own father was a doctor and his patients always took priority over his family. Rachel refuses to repeat the mistakes her mother made. But when she's courted by a wealthy client of the local resort, she faces a choice: self-sufficiency and security or the risk inherent in the deepest of loves.

My take:~

Tamera Alexander is one of the most talented writers of historical fiction today and that talent is clearly on display in her much anticipated novel, Within My Heart. With tenderness and emotion, Tamera reveals Rachel’s heartbreak and fear following the death of her husband and Rand’s desire to heal and protect. Beautiful prose and vivid characterisation hallmark this enthralling story that will engage anyone who loves historical romance. Tamera is one of the few historical writers with the ability to make this all too often cliched genre vivid and fresh which guarantees each one of her books remain on my keeper shelf. If you are yet to discover Tamera's novels, you are missing out on some fabulous writing and I recommend you rectify the situation immediately!

I cannot wait to read this book! I've been so impatient for it! It seems like it has taken forever since the earlier part of the series.

Yes, unfortunately Tamera's dear mum became ill when Tamera was writing the story so it was delayed so Tamera spend those last months with her until she went to Jesus.

You will enjoy the story, MJ and Lori :)
