Overview

Annabelle Grayson has been given a second chance at life, but she can't claim it with the cloud of her past hanging over her in Willow Springs. After her husband dies, she advertises for a trail guide to accompany her to land waiting for her in Idaho—and a most unlikely candidate applies for the job.

Matthew Taylor is a man on the run, with consequences of past mistakes pursuing him at every turn. Meeting Annabelle Grayson the first time was unpleasant enough, but when she crosses his path again, her presence in his life—and what she reveals—is devastating. If given a single wish, Matthew would turn back time and right a grievous wrong. If given a second wish, he would make Annabelle Grayson pay.

Editorial Reviews

Sheryl Root
" Tamera Alexander's characters are real, fallible, and a marvelous reflection of God's truth and grace. Her stories unfold layer-by-layer, drawing you in deeper with every page. I was riveted to this book, so caught up in the lives of Matthew and Annabelle that I felt loss at the end when I had to leave them behind... Armchair Interviews says: Excellent book, well written with a fine story. "

Once again Tamera Alexander paints the scenes so vividly you think you're there watching the story unfold. She gives depth to the story as well as her characters both primary and secondary that keep you turning the pages....

Ms. Alexander is not preachy as she weaves scriptures and the spiritual struggles we all have on a daily basis throughout the story. I enjoyed the inspirational messages that are intertwined with Annabelle and Matthew's story. Readers of all genres will enjoy Revealed. As the first book in the series did, this story gives the reader something to think about in forgiveness and of loving and being loved.

...Alexander's book is refreshingly deep. She explores human nature and emotions as she paints a vivid picture of healing and reconciliation with genuine, endearing characters, and a captivating plotline.
Overall, Alexander achieves a wonderfully balanced mix of romance, adventure, and humor. She guides the reader on an unforgettable journey from Colorado to Idaho, from brokenness to healing, from ashes to beauty. Revealed is a charming, compelling story with a strong message of restoration through Christ. It will easily sweep an adult female audience off her feet.

This second book in the Fountain Creek Chronicles reveals the power of love and forgiveness. All of the characters in the story are interesting and complex, even if they play minor roles. Though the characters were present in the previous story, Rekindled, this book can stand on its own. The author realistically describes the land and the hardships of making an overland journey without dwelling on them. The real plot involves the relationships between people. A warm-hearted inspirational story. (Nan Curnutt, Historical Novels Review)
Library Journal

This second title from award-winning author Alexander's "Fountain Creek" series is a moving story of two flawed individuals who struggle with their prejudices and painful pasts on a wagon train journey to Idaho in the 1870s. Jonathan McCutchin married Annabelle Grayson, a prostitute. His brother, Matthew Taylor, scandalized that Jonathan would associate with such a low character, leaves the area after an angry confrontation. Suffering from heart trouble, Jonathan dies en route to his Idaho ranch, and Annabelle returns to their starting point to bury him. Matthew also returns, running from a bounty hunter, hoping to have the opportunity to reconcile with his brother. Since he has no money, he looks for a job and discovers that a widow is seeking a guide to Idaho. As Annabelle and Matthew set out on their journey, their thorny relationship rears its head. However, as the miles go by, they both change and grow. Narrator Barbara McCulloh does an excellent job, and the listener can almost hear the wind blowing through the camp at night. Highly recommended for fiction collections, especially those that feature a large inspirational section.

What People are saying about this

Bev Huston
Book two in the Fountain Creek Chronicles is a winner. Alexander deftly portrays the heroine's wounded soul and her struggles with regret while being careful not to reveal anything too soon. Though well written, there is a subtle variation in the engaging prose from book one, perhaps due to the heroine's strong emotional struggles.
Romantic Times
Tracy Zappala
Revealed brings two seemingly unlikely characters together; a rough cowboy who has lived a pure life and a hardened prostitute who has left her life behind. Both of these characters seek forgiveness for their mistakes while finding true redemption through God. Readers will not be disappointed with this wonderful character study and heartfelt emotional drama where two of the most different people find that they have more in common as they travel on the trail to Idaho. Truly, Revealed is an inspirational book that shows how love can bloom in the most unlikely of hearts and how Gods love can bring two souls together in a most wonderful way.
