Tamera Alexander's gripping debut novel is a "masterful blend of captivating story and technical excellence" (CBA's Aspiring Retail). Set in the 1868 Colorado Rockies, Rekindled tells the poignant story of a man and wife whose life and love are forever changed.
Bushwhacked and left to die in flames, rancher Larson Jennings is lovingly nurtured by a godly mountain couple. As his body slowly heals, he becomes spiritually transformed. But with his handsome features now scarred beyond recognition, Larson wonders if anyone can look beyond his grotesque burns to the better man he has become. Long presumed dead, he painfully limps home—to find his wife arm-and-arm with another man. As tears trickle down his disfigured face, Larson asks God to help him do what’s best for his beloved Kathryn.
With the romantic irony of Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac, Alexander paints an unforgettable portrait of unselfish love.
- Excellent except for the parts about the sadistic murderer
We would give this book 4 stars except for the parts about the sadistic murderer. This was unnecessary and the amount of description was excessive. We should not glorify evil. Otherwise this was the most Christian book that we have listen to by Tamera Alexander. We especially like the way she describes the realistic struggles of becoming and being a Christian and her practical applications of Christian principles to everyday life. The book is very suspenseful and keeps your interest. And it keep us awake as we drove long hours on the road. We have enjoyed all her books so far.
(PS We rarely give out 5 stars - this would mean its a world classic!) So our 4 star rating is very good but down-rated it to 3 stars because of the murder scenes.
