A Great Western Read!

Taming the Wind

By:  Tracie Peterson
Publisher:  Bethany House
ISBN #:  9780764206177
Pages:  324

This is the third book in the Land of the Lone Star series.  The story centers on Carissa Lowe, a widow and mother of a little girl.  Carissa’s past with her abusive husband haunts her along with the tragic events that resulted in the loss of her husband.  The author does a good job in explaining briefly the events that occurred to Carissa (being the fact that Book Two was about these events) which lead to her fearfulness and caution.  Tyler Atherton is very much a part of Carissa’s story.  He saved her life on that tragic day in Carissa’s life and at the beginning of the story it is discovered that Tyler cares very much for Carissa and her daughter. 

The author does a wonderful job describing these two characters and telling their separate yet intertwined journeys.  So many these are reflected in this book such as forgiveness, trust, and love.  I found that it wasn’t necessary to read the first two books in order to read this one.  This was an entertaining read filled with adventure, suspense, and romance.  Overall, this was an enjoyable read.

Feel free to comment below if you have read any books from Tracie Peterson and how you’ve liked them. 

Happy Reading!
