Touching the Sky by Tracie Peterson

When Laura Marquardt first meets Brandon Reid, their encounter is anything but pleasant. But when the two are seated together at a dinner party, they soon find that they share similar interests--Laura desires to educate blacks, and Brandon, as a white officer over colored troops, eagerly supports her cause. 
When Laura's sister, Carissa, marries her Confederate beau, Laura finds herself in a difficult situation when she overhears plots to kill Union soldiers. Though in her heart she feels she should share this information with Brandon, Laura fears she will betray her sister's trust and possibly endanger her sister's life. And when Brandon's motives for pursuing her come into question, her heart is even more conflicted. Where is God leading her?

My Thoughts:
I did not read the first book in this series (Chasing The Sun), but I don't think reading these in order, is all that necessary. Touching the Sky follows the March release of Chasing the Sun but they are essentially stand-alone novels, although a character from the first book does make a brief appearance in this one. Once again, Peterson has created a heroine who is strong and full of spirit. The novel starts with an encounter that sets both characters on edge, but if you’re familiar with the Christian romance genre, you’ll realize that this is how the story will go. Boy and girl meet, boy and girl have a misunderstanding, there’s some kind of action, and then there’s happily ever after. It was a typical Christian Romance novel, but an enjoyable one.
