Taming the Wind
“Taming the Wind” by Tracie Peterson continues the story of Carissa Lowe and Tyler Atherton. When we first met Carissa in “Touching the Sky” she was a spoiled brat who always got what she wanted. Now she has survived a loveless and brutal marriage and has grown up to be a loving and caring person and mother. The scars of her first marriage run deep and she is not ready to give her heart to another man. But then Tyler enters into the picture again. He helped save Carissa from her husband and he has never been able to forget about her. So when he hears that she is visiting her sister and brother-in-law’s ranch nearby he decides to visit and soon realizes he has lost his heart to her and her daughter. Carissa is still wary of him but when he leaves on a cattle drive she finds herself thinking of him and missing him. They both realize they have deep emotional scars that need to be healed before they can have a future together. Will they let their anger go and give it to God?
“Taming the Wind” is the third book in the Land of the Lone Star trilogy. Tracie Peterson does a great job of bringing the characters from the first two books back into this one. This book can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading the “Chasing the Sun” and “Touching the Sky” first so that you have more compassion for Carissa and Tyler and have more of their story. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from Bethany House Publishers.
