it was amazing

“Would you paint if you knew you were only painting for me?”

Claire Laurent never asked for the life she was forced to lead. Her father manipulated and intimidated her into a life of deceit and lies by exploiting her artistic talents and forcing her to forge priceless paintings for his gallery. When an unexpected set of circumstances afford Claire an opportunity to leave her life of deception, she takes it and tries to make a new life for herself. As she finds a personal relationship with God and also gets to know a wonderful man, she dares to hope for the future. Her self esteem grows as she realizes that she does have value in and of herself. Yet, all the while she also knows that to make a new start and please God she will have to reveal her past and risk all the peace and happiness that she has found. She longs to leave a lasting impression that is real and worthy of recognition but if she reveals all, will she lose the man she loves?

I have read all of Tamera’s previous releases and she is definitely a master at her craft. Her characters are created with a depth and richness to them that many writers are never able to achieve. Her writing always produces a beautifully laid out love story with a multi-faceted plot that keeps the reader completely immersed in the book from the very first page until the very last. Along with a satisfying read, each of Tamera’s books has a deep moral truth woven throughout its pages—something that will stick with the reader long after the book is finished. This newest volume of hers is every bit as good as the previous ones and is sure to leave A Lasting Impression.

I received this complimentary copy from Bethany House Publishers for this review. A positive review was not required and the opinions expressed here are my own.
