Book review: Taming the wind by Tracie Peterson

  Back of the Book:

A young widow nursing the wounds of her past…

A cowboy with demons of his own…

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. And Carissa’s daughter, Gloria, seems determined to wrap herself around his little finger. But while Tyler longs to provide a home and future for Carissa, he is haunted by an obligation he feels unable to fulfill.

Challenged by mounting hardships, can Carissa and Tyler preserve their fledgling love in a land as unforgiving and vibrant as the people who call it home?

I was tickled to be able to read and review Taming the Wind, as I had read the first 2 books of The Land of the Lonestar series.
 Taming the Wind is the 3rd and final book in the series and was just as good as the first 2. The characters were spunky and real and the whole story really came together with this third book.

 The main characters, Carissa and Tyler, were forever working out a new life lesson and Taming the Wind showed how they overcame their fears and challenges and in the end became one, just like God intended.
 I have read quite a few books dedicated to Historical Fiction lately, but Tracie Peterson has that special ability to breath life into her characters and draw the reader into the story and ultimately the history of our past. Of course these book would be nothing without that twist of the love story thrown in for good measure. This was an easy read that kept you entertained until the end.
 I highly recommend this book to all who love Historical Fiction!

I received this book from Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing Group, in exchange for my honest review. Thank you so much Bethany House!
