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

ChristianBookPreviews.com
...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.
—Rose Rider

" 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.

...Tamera Alexander is a gifted storyteller. The characters are strong, true to themselves and their beliefs. Highly recommended.
Nan Curnutt
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.

    A Must Read

    I am not into romance novels AT ALL, but I don't think this qualifies as a romance novel, really. I absolutely loved this book, as much as I loved Rekindled (#1 in the series.) The love between Annabelle and Matthew is realistic-- it grows slowly over time and the challenges they have along the way makes for a great adventure.

    This story will impact you for years to come...

    Move over Petticoat Ranch! I still love ya, but Revealed moves into the top spot now. In fact, I dare say I loved Revealed even more than Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers, which used to be my favorite book...period. The title Revealed is so perfect and sums up the story in so many ways. What made this book so amazing? The characters were not just flawed, but they grew throughout the story. Especially the hero. To me, this is the most powerful redemption story I've ever read. The tension between the characters was truly believable. As they got to know each other more they discovered that many of their assumptions about each other were not true, which meant they had to change things about themselves because of that revelation. Is that cool, or what? I don't want to spoil the story for you with too many details, but there was just so much healing and character growth in this novel that it sets it apart from most historical westerns. Sure, you still have the sleazy characters that you want to choke, and they were believable, too. But there is just more depth to this story than most. The spiritual threads were delicately woven throughout the book and not at all preachy, IMHO. And that first kiss perfect. The finger trailing the lip. The look in his eyes. The romantic waiting. The fact that he said he'd wait. So many things understood between them without a word. Oh, and her scary feelings of love (as a woman should feel) and the wonder of it all was fabulously done. She experienced how special things could be with Matthew. One of the things I loved best about this story was the theme of how you can't love others if you don't know what unconditional love is. Johnny rescued Annabelle from a horrible life and prepared the soil for her to experience true love for the first time in her life. I also loved how the author used Annabelle's concern for Sadie to reach Matthew as well. Their relationship was so well done, as was the guardedness on Sadie's end. Several times my eyes misted. Great emotional impact! I highly recommend this book.

    great second novel featuring forgiveness

    ¿Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me.¿ Matthew Taylor discovers that the children¿s rhyme is devastatingly untrue¿words can wound the soul far more deeply than actions can injure the body. Matthew believes himself to be a righteous man, but Annabelle Grayson brings out the worst in him at every turn. Her past serves as proof to him that she can never change, and he refuses to consider otherwise. Matthew accuses Annabelle of being a conniving woman who is out for everything she can get, and he is slow to realize that extending forgiveness to others and accepting forgiveness for himself are both necessary to achieve true freedom. Matthew¿s accusations grieve Annabelle, who longs to make the most of her second chance at life. Unfortunately, the only way for her to do so is to escape the small Colorado town where gossip keeps her past alive. She and her husband set out for Idaho, but his death forces her to return to Willow Springs. In a final, desperate bid to leave her past behind, she advertises for a trail guide to take her to Idaho and receives a shock when she meets the first applicant for the job¿Matthew Taylor. Thankfully, a second man applies for the position. As Annabelle makes her way north with her trail guide, she seeks her young friend, Sadie, who disappeared several months earlier. En route, Annabelle discovers that life is not always as it seems, and past actions, no matter how hurtful, can be forgiven. Tamera Alexander¿s second novel in her debut Fountain Creek Chronicles series highlights her talent at featuring an aspect of Christian living, in this case, forgiveness, in a real-life context. The historical, western flavor of the novel comes through clearly and portrays the wilds of Colorado and of life on the trail with accuracy. Furthermore, Alexander¿s strongly drawn characters and realistic, compelling plot draw readers into the story and entice them to read ¿just one more chapter.¿ I look forward to the final novel in this series, Remembered, coming June 2007.

    An interesting Reconstruction Era novel

    In the late 1860s with the death of her spouse, pregnant Annabelle Grayson McCuthens feels alone as her life is filled with mistakes and regrets. She decides to leave Fountain Creek, Colorado to start fresh in a new home in Idaho in hopes of leaving behind her failures. She seeks to hire a guide to take her to her new beginning.-------------- Two men respond to her want ads. The younger one Matthew Taylor is running from his past just like Annabelle is. He applies for the position that he sees as a chance to start anew, but is stunned to learn if hired his employer is the Widow McCuthens, the woman he blames for his friend¿s death though he admits he helped cause the wrong that will haunt him for ever.-------------- The second Fountain Creek Chronicles (see REKINDLED) is an inspirational tale starring two souls with much remorse over errors they made that cost them and others plenty. The irony of this superb Americana is that Matthew scorns Annabelle though he holds himself in contempt too. Readers will be hooked early on to learn why as Tamara Alexander provides an interesting Reconstruction Era novel------------ Harriet Klausner
