Today I am going to post a line from Tamera Alexander's Belle Meade Plantation Novels:
To Whisper Her Name
To Win Her Favor
To Mend A Dream
(Among the Fair Magnolias Novella)
I had the fun and unique experience of attending CFRR16. Here I met many wonderful blogger and reader friends and authors. Among these fantastic authors was Tamera Alexander. What a pleasure to meet her!! Although I did not get a picture with her, I did get some signatures to put in my Belle Meade Plantation books. Yay! The day after the conference, I went on an adventure with Rachel from Bookworm Mama and our friend Abi to visit Belle Meade Plantation. Wow!! What an experience. This helps brings Tamera's stories to life even more than before. Below I have included some of the pictures from our adventure.
Belle Meade Plantation, Nashville, TN
Now on to the first lines...
August 17, 1863
In the hills surrounding the Union-occupied city of Nashville...
First Lieutenant Ridley Adam Cooper peered through the stand of bristled pines, his presence cloacked by dusk, his Winchester cocked and read.
~To Whisper Her Name
May 4, 1869
"Steady girl," Maggie whispered, peering down from the bluff, leather reins held taut.
~To Win Her Favor
June 13, 1870
What she wouldn't give for the chance to be back in that house again. If only for a day...
~To Mend a Dream, a novella from the Among the Fair Magnolias Collection
