What I’m Reading

My Thoughts

Taming the Wind is more than a love story.
Cassie Lowe has escaped a nightmare marriage to only be imprisoned in fear. She worries about letting people get close enough to hurt her and her daughter. She worries for her daughter’s safety. She chooses to seal off her heart to anyone that could hurt them. Only through God does she learn that she has to turn her fears over to Him to truly be free.

Tyler Atherton is also living in a prison, but his is one of unforgiveness. His father was killed by Indians and he is overwhelmed by hatred and bitterness. Only when he comes face to face with the man who killed his father does he realize that he needs to forgive and turn all those feelings over to God.

Taming the Wind is a wonderful story of two people 
that are broken by circumstances and healed through God’s love.

About the Book

When Cassie Lowe goes to live with her sister in the years following the Civil War, she is reacquainted with a man who once saved her life, Tyler Atherton. But Cassie is no longer the lighthearted young woman he once knew. She is now a widow with a young daughter, and she is nursing the disappointments and hurts from a difficult marriage. Though she longs to open her heart again, she is bound by fear and mistrust.

Tyler has demons of his own. Still haunted by the knowledge that his father was murdered by Comanches, he puts all his focus on reclaiming his inheritance: the ranch stolen from his family as punishment for his fighting for the Confederacy. With his affection for Cassie growing, he longs to provide a home and future for her and her daughter.

Though yearning to pledge their love, both Cassie and Tyler struggle to conquer their fears. Will Indian attacks, post-war renegades, and the hardship of life on the Texas plains destroy their future? Or will they find the strength to surrender their wills to God…and embrace his perfect plan?
