Touching the Sky by Tracie Peterson

I received a complementary copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers.  The Civil War has just ended and tension is still in the air.   Laura comes from a family that supported the north.  She finds herself drawn to a handsome Captain.  Meanwhile her sister, Carissa is betrothed to a former confederate.  They don't find what kind of man he is until after the wedding.  The book had potential.  I didn't like Carissa or her story line.  This was a large portion of the book.  I find it unbelievable that her family would allow Carissa to be courted by, much less marry the man that she did.  The author paints Carissa as a very needy, spoiled, well-off girl.  As soon as she gets married, this seems to change.  She suddenly cares about what people think (she didn't seem to care before).  There were a lot of things about the book that I found unbelievable.  This made it hard to enjoy the story.  I would give the book 2.5/5 stars.
