Taming the Wind, by Tracie Peterson {Book Review}

Taming the Wind, by Tracie Peterson; Book 3 of Land of the Lone Star series.

I think know this was my favorite of the three books in this series. I do feel that you need to have read the 2nd book, Touching the Sky, to be really familiar with the lead characters in this book. Since it was more of a continuation of Touching the Sky, I love getting to see what happened to Brandon and Laura after their ‘story’ ended. Seeing Carissa’s personnel growth and seeing Hannah and William {Chasing the Sun} again was also a bonus.

I sometimes have a hard time getting into series since I have a tendency to forget the relationships between the characters from the previous installment. Not an issue with Tracie’s books! Everything seemed like a natural progression with real life thrown in there as well. Seeing another aspect of life after the conclusion of the Civil War, life out in the middle of nowhere, was eye opening.

My favorite character was little Gloria. Out of the mouth of babes, was a common phrase that ran through my head while reading about her. Having two little girls with more energy than I can ever keep up with… I can totally relate to Carissa about Gloria.

If you like Historical Western Romances you should definitely add all three books from this series to your collection!

Peterson Continues a Bestselling Tradition!

When Cassie Lowe goes to live with her sister in the years following the Civil War, she is reacquainted with a man who once saved her life, Tyler Atherton. But Cassie is no longer the lighthearted young woman he once knew. She is now a widow with a young daughter, and she is nursing the disappointments and hurts from a difficult marriage. Though she longs to open her heart again, she is bound by fear and mistrust.

Tyler has demons of his own. Still haunted by the knowledge that his father was murdered by Comanches, he puts all his focus on reclaiming his inheritance: the ranch stolen from his family as punishment for his fighting for the Confederacy. With his affection for Cassie growing, he longs to provide a home and future for her and her daughter.

Though yearning to pledge their love, both Cassie and Tyler struggle to conquer their fears. Will Indian attacks, post-war renegades, and the hardship of life on the Texas plains destroy their future? Or will they find the strength to surrender their wills to God…and embrace his perfect plan?
