A Lasting Impression by Tamera Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I loved this story. In the beginning of the book I wasn't sure it would draw me in, but the characters were interesting enough to pull me in. Then the theme of the book made the story memorable for me. Claire, Mrs. Acklen and Sutton were interesting to read about. Although each of them came from different stations within society, they all shared one thing in common. Shame.
This is part of why I enjoyed the story so much. I've been going through a Bible study for the last 6 months about the shame we experience in our sinful and human state. It doesn't matter who you are, you have either done shameful things or are associated with someone who has brought shame on you. That's exactly what Claire, Mrs. Acklen and Sutton were all dealing with privately within their hearts, and they were seeking how to overcome it.
I highly recommend this book, and I am looking forward to book 2 of the Belmont Mansion series.
