Then a chance meeting with a wounded soldier offers another opportunity – and friendship. But can Aletta trust this man?
Captain Jake Winston, a revered Confederate sharpshooter, suffered a head wound at the Battle of Chickamauga. When doctors deliver their diagnosis, Jake fears losing not only his greatest skill but his very identity. As he heals, Jake is ordered to assist with a local Women’s Relief Society auction. He respectfully objects.Kowtowing to a bunch of “crinolines” isn’t his idea of soldiering. But orders are orders, and he soon discovers this group of ladies – one, in particular – is far more than he bargained for.
Set against the backdrop and history of the Carnton Plantation in Franklin, Tennessee, Christmas at Carnton is a story of hope renewed and faith restored at Christmas.
Review:  Christmas at Carnton is the novella leading to the series Carnton novels by Tamera Alexander. Tamera hooked me right from the start with this heart touching novella. A story that is full of love, hope, heartache, pain and so much more. Characters that come to life before your eyes. I so can’t wait to dive into the rest of the books in this series. I received a complementary copy of this novella. This review is my honest opinion. 5 stars!
