Item Description...
What happens when the realization of a dream isn't what you imagined... and the secret you've spent a lifetime guarding is finally laid bare?

Determined to become one of the country's premier newspaper photographers, Elizabeth Westbrook travels to the Colorado Territory to capture the grandeur of the mountains surrounding the remote town of Timber Ridge. She hopes, too, that the cool, dry air of Colorado, and its renowned hot springs, will cure the mysterious illness that threatens her career, and her life. Daniel Ranslett is a man shackled by his Confederate past, and he'll do anything to protect his land, and his solitude. When an outspoken Yankee photographer captures an image that appears key to solving a murder, putting herself in danger, Daniel is called upon to repay a debt. He's a man of his word, but repaying that debt could reveal secrets from his past he would prefer remain buried.

Forced on a perilous journey together, Daniel and Elizabeth's lives intertwine in ways neither could have imagined when first they met from a distance.

Wonderful Book  Jun 8, 2008
I have never read a Tamera Alexander book that wasn't good. She doesn't disappoint with her new series. The characters are likeable and believable. I disagree with one reviewer who didn't think Elizabeth was believable. She was absolutely genuine and very likeable. Josiah was a wonderful character also and the ending was superb. I look forward to the next installment in this series.
 
Great Start to New Series!  Jun 6, 2008
This is the first book I've read by Tamera Alexander, and I enjoyed every bit of it. Compelling characters must deal with the aftermath of the Civil War as well as their own personal secrets. The majestic mountains and setting of Colorado Territory come alive through Alexander's vivid descriptions.

The developing relationship between Elizabeth and Daniel crackles with energy as they each face their fears and shortcomings to drop their facades and be the people God intended them to be. The secondary characters are well developed, particularly Josiah, a former slave whose story is just as engrossing as that of the main characters.

From A Distance is a wonderful beginning to the Timber Ridge Reflections series. I look forward to the next book, and many more from this talented author!
 
3 1/2 stars  Jun 2, 2008
After reading and enjoying Tamera Alexander's Fountain Creek Chronicles, she became one of my few `must-buy' Christian authors. I was very excited to see she had started a new series. But Timber Ridge Reflections, at least this first installment, is not as good as I had hoped it would be. I just couldn't get to like the heroine and the plot was very predictable. I'm hoping that the series isn't doomed from this less than promising start. Hopefully there is a better hero/heroine. Elizabeth Westbrook is just not a very likeable or relatable heroine. You're supposed to empathize with the main character; they're supposed to be relatable enough that you can imagine and feel all that they go through. I couldn't feel that way about Elizabeth. She continued to grate my nerves. She is very selfish, uppity, and at times, pretty rude. I guess that she can be described as a stereotypical Yankee upper middle class woman. You don't really blame Daniel Ranslett for his comments; I cheered him on. (Daniel is a sweet hero. He has been through a lot and lives in seclusion from the townspeople. He likes it that way. So when Elizabeth needs a knowledgeable guide of the area, he is none too happy to be found the most suitable candidate.) He and Josiah, Elizabeth's assistant, were the only two characters that I really enjoyed. They were well able to deal with and react to her brashness and outspokenness. I felt like Elizabeth needed a good talking to so that she could understand how she was coming off. She seems innocent of her behavior, probably because that's how most other people she had previously dealt with acted. Out in the wild and unsettled Western world, though, she is not the norm. Most people are kind and welcoming, but look at her sideways in confusion and almost contempt (because at times she acts better than these common folk).

Overall a good enough story that I was able to keep reading, but not as good as I had expected. It was interesting to learn about turn of the century photography and that went into getting a photograph in those days. It's so complicated compared to the click of a button nowadays. It's pretty amazing to see how far that technology has come. I'm hoping the second installment is better and that this was just a fluke. I am a fairly picky reader; maybe others won't find Elizabeth as annoying as I did. Maybe they'll enjoy the story more because her personality won't bother them. In that case, things are looking good for those readers because they'll be in for a good read. I'm hoping that Ms. Alexander finds a more likeable heroine next time around.

3 ½ stars- I don't see myself re-reading this one.
 
Excellent   Jun 1, 2008
In 1875 photographer Elizabeth Westbrook arrives in Timber Ridge, Colorado Territory to take pictures of the legendary beauties, Maroon Bells. She also plans to photograph the nearby recently discovered cliff dwellings. Elizabeth has another reason to come to the Rockies; she prays that the clean mountain air and the hot springs will help cure her from a mysterious illness.

Daniel Ranslett is also in town still trying to move past the Civil War and the guilt he feels as a Confederacy sniper although a decade has passed and he rationalizes he was doing his job However, Elizabeth's life is threatened when a picture she took becomes key evidence in a murder case. Daniel vows to keep her safe even as they argue constantly; he also knows what is ailing her and how to fix her health issue while they fall in love.

Readers will believe that Tamara Alexander employs a time machine as the audience will feel they have been transported to 1875 Colorado Territory. Provide yourself plenty of time for a one sitter as interruptions will feel annoying. The lead couple is a wonderful pairing as both have issues to deal with to include falling in love and keeping her safe though their interests differ.
