Image of From a Distance (Timber Ridge Reflections, Book 1)

This first installment in Alexander's new historical series is fast paced and emotionally charged, with beautiful descriptions of the landscape.

Elizabeth Westbrook has come to Timber Ridge in the Colorado Territory in 1875 to photograph the Maroon Bells for their beauty and also for the newly discovered cliff dwellings. She hopes the clean, fresh air will work on her mysterious illness. Daniel Ranslett is trying to forget the horrors of the Civil War and the role he played as a sharpshooter for the Confederacy.

When one of her photographs is evidence in a murder, Elizabeth's life is in danger. Then she and Daniel clash over her interests, and she wonders about her motivation for being in Timber Ridge. Daniel understands Elizabeth's illness and is willing to help her with what she must go through to rid herself of it. (Bethany House, Jun., 352 pp., $13.99)
