In May, you may recall when I mentioned the first book in the Horses and Friends series, A Horse for Kate. The Horse and Friends Series is set to have four books so far. A Horse for Kate (Spring 2014) Silver Spurs (Summer 2015) Mystery Rider (Fall 2015) Blue Ribbon Trail Ride (Spring 2016) When I was a pre-teen, or tween, I definitely had fears and trusting God was a concept constantly on my mind. In Silver Spurs, Kate and her friend Tori have a tale of defeating their fears and entrusting God with their dreams. This one has a flair of the “means girls” that is so often found in this age, but there is a method to the madness and a purpose to the pain. I’ve never been one much to get caught up in the excitement about horse-lovers. While I have loved the handful of times I’ve. . .
When I hear of a début author I’m always curious. (ETA: So I know now that Christine is not actually a début author, but this is her first novel with Revell Books. She has many other Love Inspired Historicals that are absolutely going on my wish list!) The cover of this book really appealed to me. I did not realize it was a Florida Keyes novel until I started in. I was reading an eARC and figured I would read a chapter or two to see if it should go on my to-review list. I didn’t expect to be so captivated that I was reading well until 4 AM until I could fend off sleep no-longer. The next afternoon, I read the rest.
