Award-Winning Author Tamera Alexander & To Whisper Her Name
My guest today is author Tamera Alexander who writes BIG historicals in the grand tradition. I’m in the midst of reading her latest, To Whisper Her Name. And finding it a compelling tension-filled read. Here’s Tamera:
“Growing up in Atlanta and visiting antebellum mansions, I developed an early appreciation for the post-bellum era of our nation’s history. Through the years, that appreciation matured into a deeper love and respect for the people and events of that time. And I’m grateful for the opportunity to write about that part of our nation’s history.
To Whisper Her Name is the first in the three-book Belle Meade Plantation. After writing numerous novels set in the Colorado Territory, I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to write Southern historicals.
To Whisper Her Name (A Belle Meade Plantation Novel)
Olivia Aberdeen, the female protagonist in To Whisper Her Name, was born into such a time of constraint for Victorian women, yet right on the cusp of major upheavals in society––and in our nation as a whole. Olivia was raised with the notion that “Life is what it is, and can’t or shouldn’t be changed.” But when she meets Lieutenant Ridley Adam Cooper, she’s forced to look at life––and the challenges racing toward her––with a new and emboldened perspective. I appreciate women who aren’t afraid to address their fears, yet do it with grace and poise. And with a determination that sometimes scares the daylights out of them!

Thanks for sharing, Tamera. I too find the years after the Civil War a well rich for stories. My own November release, Their Frontier Family, has a Union veteran as a hero. And he’s not my first or my last. Have any of you ever read a novel by Tamera? Please share!–Lyn
