In book three of The Lone Star series, a now single mother, Carissa Lowe, is still grieving over the way her ex-husband, Malcolm, had broke her hear and partially stomped on it, but at the same time she has accepted that she'll always be nothing more than widowhood for her future. This way she can never be hurt again by a man. She and her daughter Gloria move in with her sister, Laura, and her brother-in-law, Brandon, on their horse ranch in Texas during the year 1968.
After the Civil War ended, the Texas government seized properties of anyone who served in the Union but were from a Confederate state and that what has happened to Tyler Atherton as he returns to his family home. He plans on recovering his father's ranch, but in the meantime he is working on a friend's ranch to earn money. He is sidetracked by the beautiful Carissa, a woman he once saved from her abusive husband. He had literally saved her from drowning in the waters off Corpus Christi after her husband had thrown her in. He begins to spend time around Carissa, but she will not let anyone near her heart.
Now little Gloria has other plans as she gets attached to Tyler. She even begins calling him Papa. Tyler loves both Carissa and Gloria. Tyler and Carissa are both struggling to forgive their past mistakes so they can start a new life together.
I had recently read the second book in the series titled Touching the Sky, so I eagerly signed up to review the third and final book Taming the Wind courtesy of Litfuse Publishing and Bethany House in exchange for an honest review. Each book in the series centers on new characters and Taming the Wind is better than the second book. Both the main characters, Carissa and Tyler, have both felt heartaches during their young lives and have had many challenges ahead of them. Tracie Peterson did a wonderful job ignoring the typical clichés that some Christian romances fall under. Overall, Taming the Wind is fast-paced read, full of romance that should satisfy most readers of the genre.
