Within My Heart by Tamera Alexander - Reviewed

“If you have something you want to do, and God opens a door for you to do it, thin you need to walk through that door. Don’t hesitate. Don’t wait. Because you may not get another chance.”
(p. 264)

Tamera Alexander has written a tender story about a cast of characters that are learning first hand about the way God redeems our lives from hurts that seem unbearable. These precious folks are learning about “…the eternal truth that God [is] sovereign, that His provision [is] unfailing, and that His live [is] perfect.” (p. 370) And oh, what wondrous ways He works in the life of people in every circumstance!

Rachel Boyd is still grieving the loss of her husband as she struggles to continue his dream of running a successful cattle ranch. Alone, raising two young boys, she faces uncertain circumstances and a future that is unclear. Dr. Rand Brookston is trying to create a successful medical practice among people that seem only able to pay him in food and abundant gratitude. His dream of providing a modern medical facility in this small Colorado town seems remote indeed. As he battles horrific memories from his time in the military, Rand questions whether or not he will ever have the love of a family of his own.

These two folks are only two of a host of really memorable, precious characters in Tamera Alexander’s latest book Within My Heart.” Her story draws you deep within the hearts of the people of Timber Ridge, and you will feel as though you have shared precious memories with some very wonderful characters. No matter how many books I read of Tamera’s, I am always blown away by how accurately she captures the very essence of God’s grace and mercy without diminishing the hardships that sometimes accompany His masterful work in the lives of His children.

Please, readers, don’t miss a word of this tender story! You will be abundantly blessed!
