a Belle Meade Plantation novella
#1 Romance Novella, 2016 Booksellers Best Award 

To Mend a Dream is sold individually in eBook and Audiobook. It is also available in eBook, Audiobook, and print in the Among the Fair Magnolias Southern novella collection.


Among the Fair Magnolias is a collection of four Southern love stories which includes Tamera's #1 bestselling Belle Meade Plantation novella To Mend a Dream.

In To Win Her Favor, we meet Savannah Darby, a dear friend of Maggie's. Savannah is a secondary character in To Win Her Favor, but she was such an endearing character . . . she needed "the rest of her story" told. So Tamera wrote To Mend a Dream, a Belle Meade Plantation novella.

About Among the Fair Magnolias:
In the most turbulent decade of our nation’s history, four Southern women—destinies forged by birth, hearts steeled by war—face near impossible choices on their journeys in life . . . and in love.

Praise for Among the Fair Magnolias

“You don’t have to be a fan of Southern fiction or historical fiction to appreciate and enjoy the fabulous storytelling in this collection. Each story is different and readers will ‘feel all the feels’ as they experience the challenges these characters encounter.”
~ Romantic Times 4 1/2 star review

"Savannah and Aidan’s story touched me deeply, and made me smile because, a century and a half later, people really haven’t changed so much. We still have the same longings, the same fears, the same trials. And as this story so beautifully illustrates, we still have the same God desiring to fulfill our longings, calm our fears, and carry us through every heartache. And sometimes, to bring us the kind of love Savannah and Aidan were blessed to know."
~ Deborah Raney, author of the Chicory Inn Novels and The Face of the Earth, about To Mend a Dream

"Among the Fair Magnolias will sweep you into the past, carrying you into the beauty and battles of the Old South. You will love, laugh, and lament as your heart is inspired to face life with courage and live it more fully."
~ Cindy Woodsmall, New York Times and CBA bestselling author of Amish fiction

"Four talented authors have penned a charming collection of stories that take place in the Deep South. Passions simmer, romance blossoms, and history comes alive. The settings are so real you can almost smell the sweet scent of magnolias on every page. This all adds up to a winning combination that was truly a delight to read."
~ Margaret Brownley, bestselling author of The Brides of Last Chance Ranch and Undercover Ladies series

"Romance, intrigue, and exciting plot twists--all this and more from four stories set in a south so deep I caught the fresh scent of pine, felt the petals of creamy magnolias as I read, and craved sweet tea on a porch swing. I hope there will be more collections from these wonderful southern authors."
~ Cathy Gohlke, bestselling and Christy Award-winning author of Secrets She Kept and Saving Amelie

"The era of America's Civil War has long been fertile ground for memorable stories, and here are four you'll love. I found myself enchanted by these stories of strong women challenged by hard choices--and the ultimate triumph of love and faith."
~ Ann Tatlock, award-winning author of Once Beyond A Time
