Spring Book Club Selection & Giveaway



A Lasting Impression
by Tamera Alexander


 "Better than sweet tea on a veranda, A Lasting Impression is a winner. I want to live at Belmont!"
~ Francine Rivers, New York Times bestselling author of Redeeming Love


To create something that will last is Claire Laurent's most fervent desire as an artist. It's also her greatest weakness. When her fraud of a father deals her an unexpected hand, Claire is forced to flee from New Orleans to Nashville, only a year after the War Between the States has ended. Claire's path collides with that of Sutton Monroe, and she considers him a godsend for not turning her in to the authorities. But when they meet again and he refuses to come to her aid, she realizes she's sorely misjudged the man. Trading an unwanted destiny for an unknown future, Claire finds herself in the middle of Nashville's elite society and believes her dream of creating a lasting impression in the world of art may finally be within reach.

All that Sutton Monroe holds dear lies in ruin. He's determined to reclaim his heritage and to make the men who murdered his father pay. But what he discovers on his quest for vengeance reveals a truth that may cost him more than he ever imagined.

Set at Nashville's historical Belmont Mansion, a stunning antebellum manor built by Mrs. Adelicia Acklen, the richest woman in America in the 1860s, A Lasting Impression  showcases the deep, poignant, unforgettable characters that set Tamera's stories apart and provides an inspiring love story that will capture readers' hearts and leave them eager for more.

O how I would love to read this! I attended Belmont college where you can find the Beautiful Belmont Mansion. ( Did you know that Minnie Pearl of the Grand ole Opry went to Belmont years ago! My aunts and grandmother lived across the street from the Acklen summer home. They say it was gorgeous! Hope I win!
