Beyond This Moment by Tamera Alexander


Lives are made up of tiny steps. Some are chosen for us; some we choose. All hold the power to change who we become—but only if we let them.

Dismissed from the university where she served as Professor of Romantic Languages, Dr. Molly Whitcomb travels west to start over in the secluded mountain town of Timber Ridge, Colorado, where she'll be teaching children. Her train stops in Denver, and on a whim, Molly purchases a wedding band--an attempt to cover a mistake, but also a chance at a fresh start.


Sheriff James McPherson was eager to hire a schoolteacher, but Dr. Molly Whitcomb isn't what he expected. His instincts about people--which rarely miss the mark--tell him she's hiding something. And when Molly's secret is revealed, her reinvented life begins to unravel. What's more, she risks losing her newfound relationship with the sheriff and her renewed faith in God.
My Review:
I loved this book. It is the second in the Timber Ridge Reflections trilogy but it stands alone fine. All of Tamera Alexander's books have absolutely beautiful covers to go with the beautiful writing on the inside. I was drawn in from the first page and held captured til the last page. I read it in one night. Beyond the Moment had characters that came alive in my mind. Two main themes are forgiveness and integrity. When Dr. Molly Whitcomb fails to see beyond the moment her life changes forever but can God redeem the situation?
I highly recommend this book and all of Tamera Alexander's other books too. :)
