Readers should be forewarned this book belongs in the Christian book category...a major detail that was left out of the book's description. While the author has poetic moments in her writing, the actual story is a flat line. The author held in her grasp multiple opportunities for dramatic turns and twists, potential excitement that was never drawn out on the pages. She explains the after affects of plots that had been built up to but not followed through...resulting in anticlimatic lulls. Tamera would introduce characters that her main character should have had more interaction with. Instead of building upon the relationships of the people in Claire's life (the main character), and adding dynamics to the story, these added characters were primarily used as props. No deep connection, no real meaning or added value to the story. The fact that the story went back to "God's Purpose" took me out of the book completely. And the ending tied everything up in one big bow, with (spoiler alert) the exception of finding out the identity of her father's murderer...Claire didn't seem to care, because she found her prince. A big yawn indeed!

Tamera Alexander is quickly becoming a new favorite author for me. I love her books: they are historical Christian fiction with clean, sweet love stories. I can easily lose myself in one of her stories, and each one I read seems to be better than the last.

A Lasting Impression is the first Belmont Mansion novel. The Belmont Mansion series features Adelicia Acklen, one of the wealthiest women in the United States in the 1860s. Tamera Alexander visited Belmont Mansion and knew that she was going to write about the home and its inhabitants. Alexander was able to use some of Adelicia Acklen's correspondence to get a feel for what kind of woman she was, as she was developing her character. Fiction novels based on real people and places are always so interesting to me. I love the feeling that I'm learning about history as I read.

As in her other novels, Alexander's writing style has such a great flow to it in A Lasting Impression. I was drawn in from the very first page, and for such a long book, there really were no slow parts. I like the way Alexander moves the story through time so effortlessly. Oftentimes, skipping weeks feels like a jump ahead, and it makes the story feel choppy. Not so with this novel. The plot moved seamlessly forward at a pace that made it hard for me to put the book down.

Claire made a journey to faith in A Lasting Impression, and that part of the story was especially poignant. Alexander wrote it beautifully, and one conversation in particular between Claire and Adelicia really stayed with me.

Claire is an artist, and the emphasis on art made the story feel even richer. I loved following Claire's creative process, even though she struggled at times. Her struggles made her work more authentic for me. And Adelicia's art collection was staggeringly beautiful---and that's just reading about it, not even seeing it!

The character development was very well-done, with a lot of growth in the characters throughout the course of the novel. I loved that. Alexander's imagery, as well, was outstanding.

I really loved A Lasting Impression. I can't get enough of Tamera Alexander's books! If you are a fan of historical, Christian, or clean romance, I would highly recommend this series!

A Lasting Impression is the first book in Tamera Alexander’s Belmont Mansion series, and is also the first book I have ever read by her. However, this book has made me a fan of hers forever, because it was so good!!! I fell in love with Tamera’s writing from the very beginning, and I just devoured every single page! I absolutely love historical novels, and Tamera is fantastic at weaving them together, so I know I will be reading so many of her books in the future!
Claire Laurent was a character I fell in love with from the very beginning. She had suffered so much pain by the time we meet up with her at the start of this book, and she only has to go through more in the first few chapters to follow. However, she still manages to be a very sweet, charming artist whom I absolutely loved and wanted everything to work out for. I loved her innocence, despite all that she had witnessed in her life, and I couldn’t help but know her repentance over her acts of forgery was genuine. My favorite thing of all, though, was her growing relationship with Sutton.
Sutton Monroe is one of my favorite characters out of all the books I have read. I just knew I was going to love him from the first moment I read about him on the back of the book, and I wasn’t disappointed. He is so kind, and caring, and full of life and passion, and I knew he was perfect for Claire from the start. Besides that, I also loved the relationship he has with Adelicia, because it just added a whole other element to what I knew about him, and about her. And can I just say, I really love Adelicia Acklen as well, both the woman, and the name Adelicia. (It sounds so regal, doesn’t it? ????)
Anyway, Tamera did a fantastic job on this novel, and I can gladly give it all five bookshelves, and a place on my all-time favorites list. I already owned a copy of the next book in the series—A Beauty So Rare—and in fact that is really how I got into her writing, so you can be sure I’ve already been reading that one as well. I’m looking forward to reading tons more of Tamera’s books, and I highly recommend them because they are fantastic!
