A Lasting Impression- Tamara Alexander Review and giveaway

A Lasting Impression
Tamara Alexander

Claire honors her father by forging replica art masterpieces so that he can sell them as originals, in place of her mother who died of TB. Claire longs to paint her own masterpieces and to get away from the lie that is her life. Copies, sold as copies are not wrong, but the forgery she is forced to do is getting the best of her. Her father's art gallery is ransacked and he is killed in the robbery. Now is Claire's time to flea her past and start afresh. Through gracious people around her, she arrives in Nashville to gain employment with a weathy widow, knowlegeable in things of society and art. Claire is to be her liason, or right hand gal and she is delighted to work with Ms Acklen and her 4 children, especially as she begins to grow found of Ms. Acklen's attorney Mr. Monroe. If they discover her past however, they will not be as forgiving. Will her past catch up to her and explose her for who she really is?

Fantastic novel that has suspense and the romaticism of the arts. Beautiful descriptions of France and the great artwork of Europe. Mix in a love triangle, a spotty past, and clashes of classes and Tamara Alexander has written a top notch Christian novel, reflecting well the history of the time.

Couldn't put it down, it was so well described I wanted to go visit the Belmont Mansion myself!
