Aack! Forgetting a scheduled book review and letting blogger post a blank post. Hm, yep, that's what (a very crazy busy) summer does to you!! *blush*
Ok, let's fix it! :-)
I had the chance, through Bethany House Book Reviewers, to read Touching the Sky by Tracie Peterson, book 2 in her Land of the Lone Star series.
I enjoy reading chronological series, but it's also nice to have books that aren't, so that you can read them in any order! I'm not sure how book 3 will be, but 1 and 2 don't have any recurring characters, so read whichever one you can get your hands on!
Just like Chasing the Sun, Touching the Sky has a sweet Texan romance amid post-Civil War bitterness (one of my favorite time periods)!
I really liked Esther and her explanation of 'touching the sky,' and Laura's eagerness to educate black people, despite social opposition.
Historical fiction is the genre I enjoy most, and Tracie is one of those authors that does it well. She successfully combines a good balance of research, history, and fiction (don't forget the romance!) to equal an enjoyable read.
AND FOR YOU, a peek into the book:
Touching the Sky
Thank you to Tracie and Bethany House for sending me a copy to read and review!
