Within My Heart by Tamera Alexander

Within My Heart by Tamera Alexander is a wonderful historical Christian romance full of faith, love and life in the 1800's wild west.

The story is engaging and the characters well rounded and realistic. The story follows the standard format that most love stories do but it is tastefully written and full of strong Christian faith.

Don't be fooled though, this is not just your average historical romance book! Ms. Alexander has thrown in some twists to the plot that keep this story intriguing, engaging and fresh. Her style of writing is humorous as well as thought provoking and enjoyable to read.

Overall, I enjoyed reading this book and came away relaxed and smiling from reading a good, tasteful romance novel!
