Reviews - What do customers think about Revealed (Fountain Creek Chronicles V2)?
Captivating and beautifully written Mar 26, 2007
This book was fabulous!! I was riveted from page one and I didn't put it down till I had finished it. I read the entire thing on a six-hour car ride. The characters were so real; they all had flaws and secrets. And the relationship between Annabelle and Matthew was developed beautifully. Though they started out butting heads and almost hating each other due to past experiences, they each came to terms, growing individually and then developing a solid foundation for not only friendship, but also for an angsty and subtle romance. It was obvious that these were God-fearing people, but I was a pleasantly surprised to read something a little different than the Christian fiction norm. It was more a change of heart, a change of perspective, forgiveneses and acceptance rather than the typical conversion that we read so often.
My only advice would be to read the previous book "Rekindled" first. I didn't realize this was the second book in a series, so I didn't understand alot of things. MAKE SURE YOU READ THE PREVIOUS BOOK FIRST. I have yet to read it, but it's on my desk at home waiting for me. And the next book in the series, "Remembered" will be released soon, and I can't wait to read that one as well. I'm so impressed with this debut author and what she has to offer her readers. Her writing style is sharp and descriptive, but not too flowery or over the top. Alexander has the skill and ability to pull you into the book so you see every scene and feel every emotion. Everything about this book flowed and fit just right. This is a five star book for anyone who likes historical fiction and Christian romances all wrapped up in one amazing package.
This one will change you heart and impact your life... Mar 18, 2007
Move over Petticoat Ranch! I still love ya, but Revealed moves into the top spot now. In fact, I dare say I loved Revealed even more than Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers, which used to be my favorite book...period. The title Revealed is so perfect and sums up the story in so many ways.
What made this book so amazing? The characters were not just flawed, but they grew throughout the story. Especially the hero. To me, this is the most powerful redemption story I've ever read. The tension between the characters was truly believable. As they got to know each other more they discovered that many of their assumptions about each other were not true, which meant they had to change things about themselves because of that revelation. Is that cool, or what?
I don't want to spoil the story for you with too many details, but there was just so much healing and character growth in this novel that it sets it apart from most historical westerns. Sure, you still have the sleazy characters that you want to choke, and they were believable, too. But there is just more depth to this story than most. The spiritual threads were delicately woven throughout the book and not at all preachy, IMHO. And that first kiss was perfect. The finger trailing the lip. The look in his eyes. The romantic waiting. The fact that he said he'd wait. So many things understood between them without a word. Oh, and her scary feelings of love (as a woman should feel) and the wonder of it all was fabulously done. She experienced how special things could be with Matthew.
One of the things I loved best about this story was the theme of how you can't love others if you don't know what unconditional love is. Johnny rescued Annabelle from a horrible life and prepared the soil for her to experience true love for the first time in her life. I also loved how the author used Annabelle's concern for Sadie to reach Matthew as well. Their relationship was so well done, as was the guardedness on Sadie's end. Several times my eyes misted. Great emotional impact! I highly recommend this book.
One of the best of the year Feb 26, 2007
Tamera Alexander may be new on the writing scene, but she's definitely a pro. The rhythm of her writing, the insights into her characters, and the power of the story all work together for an unforgettable read. This is one writer to watch as she moves to the bestseller lists.
Forgiveness and love on the trail to Idaho Feb 7, 2007
Once again Tamara Alexander provides us with a story you take to heart and love. With two of the characters from her first novel, Tamera weaves a tale of God's love and forgiveness for even the most broken of lives. Matt Taylor and Annabelle Grayson are drawn together when he learns his deceased brother's pregnant widow needs an escort to take her to join the wagon train she had to leave when Jonathan died. She wants to continue the journey to Idaho to live on the ranch Jonathan claimed there. Matt agrees because he believes the ranch should be his, not Annabelle's. Because of her past life in a brothel, Matt feels she isn't worthy to bear the name of his brother and even doubts the unborn child is Jonathan's. Matt and Annabelle travel westward and during the trip, they learn to respect each other and to trust God to take them safely on their journey. Along the way Annabelle, with Matt's unexpected help, is able to rescue a young friend, Sadie, from life in a brothel. The ending has a wonderful twist that wraps up the story in a most satisfying way. This is one that will be hard to put down once you start reading.
Utterly engaging! Jan 16, 2007
Author Tamera Alexander has a rare gift. She has again woven the fabric of a beautiful story that teaches the reader without any hint of preaching. The characters in this second book of her Fountain Creek Chronicles are even more engaging than in the first book, "Rekindled." I found it difficult to put down, and I HATED for it to end. Alexander's ability to paint a real, believable, merciful picture with words is breathtaking and made me very eager for the next book -- and made me want to be a better person! This is a wonderfully written story of amazing grace. Thank God for Tamera Alexander!
