Trapped in his feelings of bitterness about the past, Eric fights to maintain balance in his life.

Good story with a fast moving plot. I found myself wanting to know what would happen next to the characters. The author made the Christians in the story real with real concerns and issues yet did not preach at the reader. I know little about horses and the author explained what one needed to know without giving so much information that she lost the nonrider. I enjoyed the story and hope she writes more.

As a fan of Christian romance novels, I was very impressed with this book. The story line is good, and the characters don't get confusing. It is completely moral--no trash included like so many romance novels do today. I am awaiting her next publication!
