Book 1, A Belmont Mansion Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Blockbuster New Historical Series From Acclaimed Author Tamera Alexander

To create something that will last is Claire Laurent's most fervent desire as an artist. It's also her greatest weakness. When her fraud of a father deals her an unexpected hand, Claire is forced to flee from New Orleans to Nashville, only a year after the War Between the States has ended. Claire's path collides with that of Sutton Monroe, and she considers him a godsend for not turning her in to the authorities. But when they meet again and he refuses to come to her aid, she realizes she's sorely misjudged the man. Trading an unwanted destiny for an unknown future, Claire finds herself in the middle of Nashville's elite society and believes her dream of creating a lasting impression in the world of art may finally be within reach.

All that Sutton Monroe holds dear lies in ruin. He's determined to reclaim his heritage and to make the men who murdered his father pay. But what he discovers on his quest for vengeance reveals a truth that may cost him more than he ever imagined.

Set at Nashville's historical Belmont Mansion, a stunning antebellum manor built by Mrs. Adelicia Acklen, the richest woman in America in the 1860s, A Lasting Impression showcases the deep, poignant, unforgettable characters that set Tamera's stories apart and provides an inspiring love story that will capture readers' hearts and leave them eager for more.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 12, 2011 – Alexander (Within My Heart) has crafted a cleverly designed story line featuring an artist, Claire Laurent, who is forced to paint forgeries. Claire s art gallery owner father forces her to comply with his illegal activities and then dies, leaving her to fend for herself. Claire finds shelter with a compassionate minister and his wife before landing a position with Mrs. Adelicia Acklen, the richest woman in America in the 1860s. Claire also meets Sutton Monroe, a young lawyer who is obsessed with righting the wrongful death of his father, but who is growing increasingly interested in Claire and her past. Through painful pangs of conscience and events out of Claire s control, she has to decide if she is willing to hide her past or admit her mistakes to those who ve shown nothing but goodwill toward her. Alexander does a lovely job of representing the historical details of this time in American history without letting the facts distract from a tenderly told love story.

Customer Reviews

Adelicia's Belmont is amazing

For anyone associated with Belmont, this is a must read! Mrs. Alexander captures Adelicia's personality, spunk and generous heart exactly as I would have pictured it. Her words create images as beautiful as the Belmont mansion and grounds are still to this day. This is one of those books that makes you sad when it comes to an end. If I could read more, I most certainly would!
