ABOUT THE BOOK
If you would like to read the first chapter of Within My Heart, go HERE.
I have not read any of Tamera Alexander's books, and when I requested it I thought I was requesting a historical mystery (turns out I mistakenly thought it was a "Tasha Alexander" book, and I was thrilled she was writing for the Christian market. Oops!).
At any rate, I enjoyed this book. It's a sweet, well-written Christian historical novel. The characters drew me in and captured my interest. I was surprised to see this is the third in a series. I didn't feel the lack of not having read the first two books at all, and I think that speaks for good writing and plot structure. All in all, if you enjoy historical Christian fiction, this is a good book for you.
