I think I've mentioned my love for historical fiction on here before. (Probably more than a few times.) You also probably know that I like the author Tracie Peterson (a lot!). So it was wonderful when I was able to review Taming the Wind by Tracie Peterson.
The product: Taming the Wind is the third book in the Land of the Lone Star series by Tracie Peterson. Here's a little description from the publisher:
Though grateful for the blessing of her daughter, Carissa Lowe has accepted that widowhood is her lot in life. Bound by fear and mistrust, she feels incapable of opening her heart again.
Tyler Atherton has never forgotten Carissa. When he discovers she's living with her sister on a nearby ranch, his life becomes intertwined with the lovely widow's. But while Tyler longs to provide a home and future for Carissa, he is haunted by an obligation he feels unable to fulfill.
What I thought: This book was a great way to wrap up the series Land of the Lone Star. The second book, Touching the Sky, is about the Marquardt sisters. This story fast forwards a few years with the sisters in a new place with children and a new life ahead. But Carissa is in a unique situation as a single mother in this time. However, that doesn't mean than she won't find love again.
I enjoyed this book. It was nice that we get to hear the continuing story of Carissa. Her life really has changed and she learns more about herself as life deals new adventures and problems too.
Where to buy: Taming the Wind by Tracie Peterson is available in stores and online.
