What People are saying about this

Dee Dailey
"This is a heartwarming story of people coping with losses caused by war and life in the late nineteenth century. The details of living for all of them are well painted as is the land of a mostly unspoiled Territory. The author has done a superb job making this book believable, enjoyable and memorable for me and, I hope, for all readers."--(Dee Dailey,

"From A Distance takes readers on a fascinating trip to the Colorado territory and into the world of photography. Readers will experience seeing Colorado through Elizabeth's eye.... It's very evident that author Tamera Alexander has done her research by the intricate details she relates of taking photos and developing them.... I liked the tug of attraction between Daniel and Elizabeth. Their relationship, which started with them both irritated at the other, developed naturally yet kept the reader intrigued.... the interesting topic and suspense element will keep readers engrossed to the very satisfying end."--(Vickie McDonough,

"I love reading about women who don't fit in with society's ideal, such as women doctors or lawyers . . . or in this case, a woman photographer, in the 1800's. Author Tamera Alexander most definitely succeeds on this score with From a Distance.... The characters ... are well written and incredibly believable. The prose is smooth, never flat, and the intrigue will keep the reader turning the pages. Ms. Alexander's newest offer is well researched and will give her more success. Don't miss out on From a Distance if you love books of this genre, for it will not disappoint. Elizabeth will make your day a little brighter."--(Penny Goodwin,

"In this post-civil-war story, Alexander has put a woman with rather modern values into an 1875 frontier setting. The result is the story of ambition and determination pitted against nature, a mysterious illness and a backwoods community that is not a little askance over our heroine's big city outspokenness and style.... The story twists and turns through murder, romance, greed, and forgiveness. As a whole the characters are well-developed and complex, and the plot is cleverly conceived.... Alexander writes in an easy-to-read style.... She also has a way of ending chapters with a hook that kept me turning pages.... Altogether, I found From A Distance a rewarding read. Fans of romantic Americana won't want to miss it, or the next book in the Timber Ridge Reflections series, Beyond This Moment, due to be released in the spring of 2009."--(Violet Nesdoly,
