A Book Review!

I got to read a new book for Bethany House this week and I loved it.  Taming the Wind by Tracie Peterson is the newest book in the Land of the Lonestar Series. 

Carissa Lowe is grateful for her daughter and chance at a new life, but has decided widowhood is it for her.  Can she open her heart and let someone else in? 
Tyler Atherton is being eaten up from the inside out with hate.  If he doesn't deal with his dislike for indians that took the life of his father and friends, than he won't be able to extend love to those who need it from him.
Can Carissa and Tyler overcome the problems that continue to plague them?

Not only did I love the story (come on, it's Tracie Peterson, pretty sure I've loved everything I've ever read by her), but I loved how it made me think about the relocation of Native Americans after the civil war.  I guess I always just thought that it was awful and I couldn't believe how "white men" had treated them.  That is still true, but I never really thought about the settlers that were being attacked with out provocation, or about the Native Americans that were upset about being run off their land.

I loved every moment of this read.  Check it out now!

  Thank you BethanyHouse for providing me with a review copy.  My opinions are my own.
