This was the first book I have read by tamera Alexander, and I am sure that I will be reading more.

Tropes: widower, arranged marriage

Content: set during a time when the KKK was active and their crimes are shown in detail, N word (said by KKK members), kissing (& strong implications of more between a married couple), seeing scars from past abuse of a child, lots of prejustices against Irish immigrants and African American people

Tamera Alexander always pens remarkable, unforgettable stories of grief, heartbreak, forgiveness, and redemption no matter the era she chooses. This is my first contemporary women's fiction by the author and I am utterly impressed at her skill in crossing over from historical romance. Granted, there is definitely a historical side to this book where we get a glimpse of 1863 but most of the story takes place in the present time.

Claire's first person voice is raw, heart-breaking, honest, and completely relatable as she navigates the aftermath of her husband's affair, a cross-country move, and being an empty nester while struggling to find her footing in the elite world of interior design in a foreign city. Her drive, determination, and grit are admirable. Despite being a Christian, she does not realize her need for complete surrender until much later in the book - and this made me pause and think. How often do we place Jesus on a shelf in pursuit of our own wants and idols of our making?
Charlotte's third person voice from 1863 was equally heart-breaking, honest, and raw but filled with the Spirit, hope, and joy despite her circumstances.

This gripping story will make you cry happy, sad, and ugly tears all in the span of one book. It's a must-read.
