Tamera Alexander has a new novel out entitled A Beauty So Rare. It is the second in the Belmont Mansion series and promises to be another best seller for this talented author.
I'm always struck by the amount of details and research that must go into a great historical fiction book. I can't even imagine the research hours that must go into it. Can you imagine trying to stay true to the facts while adding some details from your imagination just to enhance what is known? One of the things that I think about is what interested the author enough about the time frame to write the book in the first place?
Well this time around we get a little peek into what Tamera was inspired by when she began writing this series. I think you'll find it as fascinating as I did.
