TAMING THE WIND BY TRACIE PETERSON
A young widow nursing the wounds of her past...A cowboy with demons of his own...
Though grateful for the blessing of her daughter, Carissa Lowe has accepted that widowhood is her lot in life. Bound by fear and mistrust, she feels incapable of opening her heart again. Tyler Atherton has never forgotten Carissa. When he discovers she's living with her sister on a nearby ranch, his life becomes intertwined with the lovely widow's. And Carissa's daughter, Gloria, seems determined to wrap herself around his little finger. But while Tyler longs to provide a home and future for Carissa, he is haunted by an obligation he feels unable to fulfill.Challenged by mounting hardships, can Carissa and Tyler preserve their fledgling love in a land as unforgiving and vibrant as the people who call it home?
There were several interesting parts and there is a lot of history packed into this novel. You feel like you are getting a history lesson while you are having fun:) Some things I had never really thought of as well as a good lesson on forgiving and forgetting. Gloria was a really sweet little girl and I liked Tyler a lot. Carissa I had a hard time getting to enjoy.
This is a great historical novel and one you will enjoy. I have put it on my shelf to re-read at a later time as maybe the reason I couldn't get into it was just everything going on. Please check out the Taming the Wind blog tour to see what others thought.
