Taming The Wind

This book review is for the novel "Taming The Wind" by Tracie Peterson.
It is Book 3 in the "Land of the Lone Star" series.

I really enjoy Tracie's books but I will admit to feeling a little lost and a bit behind as far as this book went since I had not read the other three. It is still an enjoyable book even if you haven't read the previous two but I would recommend that you try to do so before reading this one as I think it would have made me feel more connected to the story.

I still love her books though and will try to go back and read the first two books to get more of a back story on the characters. That being said though, Tracie does a good job of trying to fill in the blanks of some of the more important points that you would have missed if this is the first one of the series you pick up like me.

Carissa Lowe has been handed a rough deal. She is widowed at a very young age with a small daughter to see about and horrible memories of her late husbands brutality. If he had had his way in the end, she would not be alive to be spending the summer with her sister on her sisters farm deep in the heart of Texas and Indian country.

The scars left behind by his betrayal run deep and Carissa doesn't think getting married again will be something she is willing to do but she quickly realizes how much her daughter wants and needs a daddy to call her own. But even with wanting that for her, she isn't sure it's something she can bring herself to do again just for the sake of having a dad for her child.

Enter Tyler Atherton who played a large part in saving Carissa and her sister's life. She is no longer the spoiled girl Tyler once knew and is instead replaced with a grown women who has seen to many hard things in her short lifetime.

Tyler, however, is no secret to deeply buried wounds and hard to forget memories.

With God's help the two might be able to from a family together and help each other forget the awful times and instead build new happier memories together.

The only question is, will they allow the work to be done and let go of their bitterness quick enough to have a happy ending?
