Claire Laurent’s greatest aspiration is to paint something that will bring her acclaim. Yet her father insists she work as a copyist. A forger. When she’s forced to flee her home, her path collides with attorney Sutton Monroe, who shows her kindness by not turning her in to authorities. But when he later refuses to come to her aid, Claire fears she’s sorely misjudged him. Finding herself among the elite of Nashville society, Claire believes her dream of creating a lasting impression in the world of art is within reach—but only if her past remains hidden.

The Federal Army destroyed Sutton’s home, confiscated his land, and threatens to destroy his family’s honor. His determination to reclaim what belongs to him reveals a truth that may cost him more than he ever imagined—as well as the woman he loves.

Set at Nashville’s historic Belmont Mansion, a stunning antebellum manor built by Adelicia Acklen, A Lasting Impression is a sweeping love story about a nation mending after war, the redemption of those wounded, and the courage of a man and woman to see themselves—and each other—for who they really are.

    " Tamera is always a fav of mine. She takes you back to the past with the characters and gives you a pretty clear view of what life was like in that place and time. I learnt a lesson or two from the characters in this book. Not to judge people before getting to know them and that if you fall get back up. This book is about getting to know what you want in life and shows some pretty strong female characters. "

    " Period story set in New Orleans and Tennesee. Loved reading about the estate that the majority of the novel was set at. It was well depicted. The talent that Claire had, her appreciation and love for art, the artworks depicted, and the story of the patroness caught my interest and made for a wonderful story. "

    " I enjoyed this story. It was a fun look into life at Belmont Mansion in Nashville, but also told the story of a girl who was a bit unconventional and was a painter. "
