I am a lover of art.I am a lover of romance. I am a lover of books. Which is what made this book a very good read for me. Set in beautiful, historic Belmont Mansion in Nashville, the book never lacks for beautiful description or character development. Tamera Alexander paints a beautiful, well written picture of life in post civil war Belmont. The characters are genuine and memorable. You really care for, and believe in them. I loved the romance between Claire and Sutton. It never felt forced, and you couldn't help rooting for them. And I, along with Adelicia Acklen, am a lover of all things French, so that was quite nice.
I received a copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers for the purpose of reviewing.
