To Wager Her Heart

To Wager Her Heart
Tamera Alexander
Alexandra has been in mourning and almost driftless since she lost her fiance in a train wreck. She's been unable to make sense of his death and is now afraid to ride on a train after witnessing the collision. 
Sylas has left Colorado and come to Nashville to bid on a railroad project. He's not exactly comfortable in the genteel southern society and asks Alexandra to coach him on the southern customs, especially business deals. 

This was a fascinating story. The author drew so much from history and it actually felt like I'd stepped back in time to experience the same things with the characters. The story came alive with her visual descriptions. The characters were authentic and had such depth; they were relatable and likeable. I loved the story of faith and love that was woven so intricately throughout the book. While flawed, the characters had real relationships with Jesus and this shone through. Overall, I would definitely recommend this book if you enjoy history, clean romance, inspiration stories, or just a well written story.

I received a copy of this book. All thoughts expressed are my own.
