    One thought on “To Whisper Her Name”

    1. Just thought I would add a little background on why I read this particular book. While on vacation a couple of years ago in Nashville my husband and I went for a tour of the Belle Meade Plantation and I was totally intrigued with the history behind this plantation so I picked up TO WHISPER HER NAME in the gift shop. While I was paying for my purchases I was told that TAMERA ALEXANDER was actually there right now doing a book talk. I found myself a little bit excited just knowing she was there at [...]

    2. What I love about this book is the characters, they each have their own personality, none of them feel like paper cut outs. Though Within My Heart is still my favorite, this one does come close. What I love about Tamera's writing is that she lets you get right inside the characters, you feel their every emotion.There's something magical about how Olivia learns to forgive the north, forget her husband and move past her paralysing fear of horses, which is fortunate, since Mrs. Olivia is now living [...]

    3. I loved this story! I read it more slowly than usual, yet still finished it in one dayrks of being at the car dealership for 4.5 hours and then staying up a couple hours too late for "one more chapter". I enjoyed so much of it that it's difficult to review. I loved Uncle Bob, and the horses added so much to the story. For critique, two things jumped out at me. First, her wearing a bustle and a hoop. Ummm, a little ahead of timed it felt really weird that it would fall off easily anyway. Hoop, ye [...]

    4. Tamera Alexander weaves history and fiction so beautifully. To Whisper Her Name takes the history of Belle Meade just after the end of the Civil War and adds in believable characters. There were many fascinating details about the workings of a horse farm.This novel is highly recommended for fans of historical fiction. I look forward to reading the next novel in this series.

    5. Where I got the book: review copy provided by the publisher. This review first appeared on the Historical Novel Society's website and in the Historical Novel Review, issue 63.Alexander’s latest romance is set on the Belle Meade stud farm near Nashville just after the end of the Civil War. Ridley Cooper comes to the plantation to learn horsemanship before heading out to the Rockies to start his own farm; he conceals the fact that, although a Southerner, he fought on the Union side against slave [...]

    6. I have enjoyed all of the author’s previous titles, especially her Colorado historicals, but I have to say, this latest Southern antebellum novel in “To Whisper Her Name” evoked a love for southern fiction I didn’t know I possessed.The novel is rich and to be savored. I read the story slowly, not because it didn’t thoroughly capture my attention, but only because it didn’t feel right to blaze through for the sake of simply reading. I fell in love with the characters as they fell in l [...]

    7. I have a growing fondness for books written by Tamera Alexander. While they tend to be long, she manages to hold my attention the whole way through. In both the books I've read, I've really enjoyed her spirited female protagonists. I also admire the way her minor characters enrich these stories. To Win Her Favor will be my next audiobook indulgence. Tavia Gilbert is my favorite narrator!

    8. I'm going to be honest--I had no idea that I would end up LOVING this book. But love it, I did. The setting, the plot, the romance, everything flowed and worked so well together. I felt as if I walked up the long drive of Belle Meade plantation and didn't leave until the story ended.Each of the characters were so well crafted, and though Alexander could have easily relied on "stock" characters, she did no such thing. They all had their foibles and frailties, their secret sorrows and triumphs. Ol [...]

    9. This was a book I didn't want to end! Why did it have to end?! This has definitely been one of my favorite books I've read this year. It was so rich and beautifully written. I loved the historical setting of the South post-Civil War, all the descriptions of Belle Meade Plantation with its thoroughbred stud farm, and all the wonderful characters that graced this story. Loved it all!

    10. This was the first of the Belle Meade series, which are meant to be read alongside the author's Belmont series. Anyhow, as was the case with the first two books of her Belmont series, I really loved this historical novel. It was a complex, sweet story, and I enjoyed the characters. I look forward to reading more of this series, and I can honestly say that Tamera Alexander has become one of my favorite authors of historical fiction.

    11. A riveting read set in the first couple of years after the Civil War. I loved the thoroughbred theme and the author gave a lot of depth to the main characters. Also, my heart completely melted during the last couple of pages. Such a perfect ending!

    12. Author: Tamera AlexanderPublished by: Zondervan Age Recommended: Adult Reviewed By: Arlena DeanBook Blog For: GMTARating: 4Review:"To Whisper Her Name" by Tamera Alexander was a wonderful historical christian romantic long read that has it all. This setting was from 'Belle Meade Plantation' in Nashville, TN. (1866) following the Civil War where you will find "Southerners who fought on the side of the South, the women who were left behind to defend their homes, a Southerner who aligned himself wi [...]

    13. Tento román patrí k jedným z najlepších, aké som za posledné roky čítala. Som uchvátená, očarená, unesená, fascinovanáAutorka v románe zachytáva povojnové obdobie, kedy bolo zrušené otroctvo. Je vidieť, že ľudia na Juhu sa s tým nezmierovali ľahko a černosi stále ostávali diskriminovaní. Tamera to krásne zobrazila napríklad v tom, že mali nižšie mzdy ako belosi a tiež im nedovolili študovať. Nechávali ich negramotných, aby nevedeli čítať, písať, počí [...]

    14. This was a great read. The story was great and had light Christian themes implemented in the story which was more enjoyable for me. I really enjoyed the story though despite how long the book was. Also, the characters were well-written. I really liked Olivia's character as she tries new things. Also, I really liked Ridley. He never gave up on Olivia. The ending was great. I can't wait for the rest of the series. Overall, an enjoyable read.

    15. Once again, I am at awe of TAMERA ALEXANDER'S writing. Don't let the number of pages intimidate you. TO WHISPER HER NAME will take you on a journey. One you will never want to end, with exquisite writing, an amazing storyline, and three-dimensional characters, both in the main as well as the secondary characters. It is packed full of great lines that won’t disappoint. With nowhere to go, and her reputation ruined by her late husband, Olivia Aberdeen arrives at Belle Meade Plantation as a guest [...]

    16. It is sad how long it took me to read this book! I loved the first book of the Belmont Mansion series and could not wait for this book to release. But then it took me a bit to get a copy and review books kept getting in the way but I finally found the opportunity to read it when my copy of the second book in the series arrived. Thankfully I'm able to report that this book was worth the wait and I loved it! I absolutely love all of the research that this author does and it really shines through i [...]

    17. I really enjoyed this book so much more than I thought I would. It was a wonderful historical romance! I don't always like this time-setting, post-Civil War in the South, but it really opened my eyes and I loved it!

    18. 2.5 stars.This was an encouraging story of how God can redeem any situation. I enjoyed the dual povs, the full scope of the story, the utter lack of ow/om drama, and the slow burn romance. I appreciated how clean it was and how uplifting the story was. I also enjoyed the historical aspect of this story. The society in the South post-Civil War, the differing attitudes toward freedmen, and the stud farm atmosphere were compelling and engaging to read.And yetI didn't find that I enjoyed this overly [...]

    19. I love this author and the ease of which you can be pulled in to her stories. This book makes me want to visit Belle Meade plantation. I can always stand behind a storyline of a character daring to go against the cultural norm and stand against slavery during the civil war while also loving the heritage of their southern roots. And I love horses, so that was just an added bonus.

    20.

    21. Oh. My. The wait for this book has been excruciating, but it was absolutely worth it. To Whisper Her Name sets the bar for historical romance. Once again, Tamera Alexander has created a masterful saga that swept me away, this time to Belle Meade plantation. I adored Ridley Cooper and Olivia Aberdeen. Their individual stories are captivating and heart-wrenching; their relationship is superbly depicted. I loved their clashes and snarky verbal sparring just as much as the tender moments that made m [...]

    22. ** Now that I am moving to Nashville, I decided to revisit one of my favorite books which just happens to be set in that city. I think I loved it even more a third time around! And I am looking forward to revisiting Belle Meade Plantation as well. I never did read another Tamera Alexander book, so I am correcting that without delay! **I really loved this book. I knew I would after reading this in the first chapter: "Settled on the carriage seat, Olivia drew in a deep breath, the first in what fe [...]

    23. Wow! That is the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about this book. "To Whisper Her Name" has been such a contradiction for me. It felt at times that it would never end, and yet, I found a part of me didn't want it to. Filled with the true South, it reminded me of Gone with the Wind and the Daughters of Twin Oaks series, but with it's own legs to stand on. Filled with characters that steal your heart, are complete scalawags, anger you, and one that leaves you not knowing how you feel [...]

    24. My first novel by this author and the time to read it was well worth it (because it's long.) The characters developed beautifully and at a pace that was neither rushed nor languishing, which was true of their romance. The historical detail was strong enough to ground the story and teach me quite a bit without ever overpowering the story. There were quite a few layers with the supporting cast that added richness and depth to the story. Ridley is quite simply the kind of man every girl should drea [...]

    25. Tamera Alexander is quickly becoming one of my favorite historical authors. There is something about her novels set in Antebellum Nashville that draw me in and keep me reading. I couldn't read this novel fast enough. Besides the GORGEOUS cover, the characters were wonderful Olivia Aberdeen is a widow in a desperate situation who is welcomed at Belle Meade Plantation. She knows she is a charity case, but fights to come into her own. Ridley Cooper is a huge part of that happening. He sees a depth [...]

    26. Just when I thought I couldn’t like Tamera Alexander and her books anymore (check out reviews here and here), she releases To Whisper Her Name, which just might have become my favorite.I’m sure you’re tired of me talking about anything related to the Civil War, but I just can’t help myself, that era of history is fascinating, so its natural I read so many fiction novels in that time period.Anyway, this story deals with Elizabeth and Ridley (how can you not like that name??) and takes pla [...]

    27. Well, this took me a while to read, but only because it was an ebook. I'm drawn to my paperback TBR pile. I had started this book, but I hadn't proceeded very far. Then I wasn't feeling well so I resorted back to my Kindle as it is easier to hold. I wish I had finished this read sooner! It's characters are so very real, the story of the plantation and its survival so very descriptive of what it was like for many in the South after the war. The writing of this book takes one to the time and place [...]

    28. I loved this book!!!Olivia Aberdeen is a widow of a man who was a traitor to the South, left destitute, she is invited by a family friend "Aunt" Elizabeth to live at the Belle Meade Plantation. Elizabeth's husband was a Confederate General during the Civil War, and is not as willing for the wife of a traitor to live at his plantation.Ridley Cooper, lived in the South but chose to fight for the Union. He believes that all men have rights. He makes his way to Belle Meade to learn from Uncle Bob a [...]

    29. GLORIOUS, AMAZING, BREATHTAKING!! Words will not do this book justice. I was intimidated by the size of it, but once I started reading the pages flew through my fingers! This book deserves 5++++++ stars/ Definitely one of my all time favorites. To think, I have only read one of Tamera Alexander's books. I can not wait to dive into them all :)
