Editorial Reviews


"Tamera Alexander takes us to the Civil War battlefield with a vivid yet sensitive portrayal of war and its aftermath. With warmth and grace, she shows us hope and faith at work in the midst of suffering. The beautifully-drawn characters and rich history in With This Pledge work seamlessly to demonstrate that Christ's love and romantic love can triumph even in our darkest moments."
--Lynn Austin, bestselling author of Legacy of Mercy   "Alexander paints a vivid portrait of Southern life near the end of the Civil War in this well-researched historical romance. After the Battle of Franklin, Tennessee, on November 30, 1864, Carnton Home is designated a field hospital for the South and Lizzie Clouston, a governess, is quickly pressed into service as a nurse. Drama ensues as she promises a young soldier she'll deliver a letter for him and helps wounded Captain Roland Jones fight back against the doctor who wants to amputate his leg. While helping others, Lizzie is also conflicted, as she wants to honor her pledge to marry her childhood friend even as she falls for the widowed Roland. Complicating matters further, Roland is a slave owner while Lizzie is an abolitionist. Both Lizzie and Roland struggle with their faith in the midst of the misery of war. Roland has been angry at God since his wife and daughter died, but desperation and grace serve to bring him back to prayer. Lizzie finds it difficult to trust in God, but ultimately continues to believe. Against the painful and gore-filled backdrop of war, Alexander has created an exceptional tale of faith, hope, and love based on a real-life romance.--Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW   "Tamera Alexander's With This Pledge is not only historical fiction as its best, but its most compelling."~ Jolina Petersheim, bestselling author How the Light Gets In     "Based on actual events surrounding the Battle of Franklin in 1864, Tamera Alexander vividly captures the resilience, strength, and ultimate hope of those men and women who endured this dark chapter in American history."~ Joanna Stephens, Curator, The Battle of Franklin Trust (Carnton)

From the Author

Captain Roland Ward Jones and Elizabeth (Lizzie) Clouston--the hero and heroine in With This Pledge--truly met and fell in love at Carnton following the Battle of Franklin in December 1864. 
In researching and writing their love story in With This Pledge, I've had the extreme pleasure of connecting with Captain Jones' great-great-great-great grandson, David.
David has shared the love letters between Roland and Lizzie with me, along with the family history (as have the wonderful folks at Carnton Plantation), and this rich wealth of resources and "insider insights" have made this writing journey an absolutely wonderful one. Albeit, admittedly, a bit challenging, too, at times. 
To say I'm excited to share With This Pledge--Roland and Lizzie's love story--with you is an understatement! 
The book will start shipping from the warehouse on December 19, so you'll likely see print copies popping up here and there in late December. But the official release date is January 8.
Until then, God's richest blessings!

(about A Lasting Impression) and Publisher's Weekly describes her writing as "so vivid, one can almost hear the music resonating off of the page" (about A Note Yet Unsung).

Tamera is an author and inspirational speaker whose novels have garnered or been short-listed for numerous awards, including her induction into the Christy Award Hall of Fame for Excellence in Christian Fiction, the RITA Award, the Carol Award, Bookseller’s Best Award, National Reader's Choice Award, Library Journal’s Top Christian Fiction, the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence, the Golden Quill Award, and the HOLT Medallion, among others.
