Series: Carnton, Book 1
Author: Tamera Alexander
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Release Date: January 8, 2019
Genre: Historical Romance

History takes on vivid life in the stunning first full-length installment of USA TODAY bestselling Tamera Alexander’s new series, The Carnton Novels.

What can a woman—a mere governess—do against the scourge of slavery?

Elizabeth “Lizzie” Clouston’s quietly held principles oppose those of the Southern Cause—but when forty thousand soldiers converge on the fields of Franklin, Tennessee, the war demands an answer. The Carnton home where she is governess is converted into a Confederate field hospital, and Lizzie is called upon to assist the military doctor with surgeries that determine life or death. Faced with the unimaginable, she must summon fortitude, even as she fears for the life of Towny, her fiancé and lifelong friend.

As a young soldier lies dying in Lizzie’s arms, she vows to relay his final words to his mother, but knows little more than the boy’s first name. That same night, decorated Mississippi sharpshooter Captain Roland Ward Jones extracts a different promise from Lizzie: that she intervene should the surgeon decide to amputate his leg.

Lizzie is nothing if not a woman of her word, earning the soldiers’ respect as she tends to the wounded within Carnton’s walls. None is more admiring than Captain Jones, who doesn’t realize she is pledged to another. But as Lizzie’s heart softens toward the Confederate captain, she discovers that his moral ground is at odds with her own. Now torn between love, principles, and promises made, she struggles to be true to her heart while standing for what she knows is right—no matter the cost.

From the pages of history and the personal accounts of those who endured the Battle of Franklin, Tamera Alexander weaves the real-life love letters between Captain Roland Ward Jones and Miss Elizabeth Clouston into a story of unlikely romance first kindled amid the shadows of war.

    I’ve read quite a few of Tamera Alexander’s books, including the novella for this series, so I’ve come to consider her a “must read” author.

    I am not much on books about the war but these is I do believe I would love to read. It sounds like it would be a heart warming story. Thank you for a chance to win and a chance to read your books.

  9. Amy M.

    As a Tenneessean it’s always great to read a story based upon real events that happened in my state. Even though they maybe heartbreaking.

    I’ve read very few historical fiction books actually based on a true story of main characters and I love it. I live in North Alabama two hours from Franklin, TN and this story hits close to home for me. I’ve numerous ancestors that fought in the Civil War for the South as well as the North. The reasons behind which side they picked still confuse me. I know that some were opposed to slavery yet still fought as Confederate. This book sounds intriguing.

  11. Tammy Hudson

    I love Tamaras books. The cover is beautiful. This sounds like a great read. Thanks for the chance.
