    "Another great story from Tracie Peterson"
    Would you listen to Touching the Sky again? Why?

    Yes, but probably not right away. I'd like to forget parts of it and come back to betouched by it again.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I'm a history buff - Civil War and frontier - Indian Wars. This novel touched on the Civil War in the South - Texas - an area I'm not familiar with. I enjoyed the history lesson along with the telling of the story.


    What about Renee Raudman’s performance did you like?

    Her reading was as if she sat down and told me a story. Relaxed, yet engaged with the characters. Each character had his/her own voice and I loved the Southern women. Great read.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reaction, just a greater commitment to God and a life of faith.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend this book. Has thrills and a heartwarming, satisfying ending.
