Colors of Truth is another brilliant work of historical fiction from Tamera Alexander. As she did in her Belle Meade and Belmont series, she continues in the Carnton series to take real people, authentic locations, and actual events from near-Civil-war times, add fictional characters and events, and weave gripping stories.
A pivotal point in the history of our country -- both the good and the ugly -- and the wonderful truths of God shine through in this beautifully crafted story. The real and fictional characters come alive and jump off the page as they invite us into their lives. I don't believe you can read this book and not feel deeply for the individuals depicted.
I highly recommend Colors of Truth to fans of great historical fiction. Besides being inspired by a great story, you just might learn some fascinating fine points of history as well. I am anxiously waiting to visit Carnton again in the next Tamera Alexander masterpiece.
