But when her dad needs her help, she heads for their horse ranch in Daily, Texas. There she must prepare a "broke down" race horse for his role in a movie that will alter the fortunes of her dad, a Hollywood star, and a screenwriter.

"This was so good! I just couldn't put it down! The conflict was intense and easy to relate to and the characters were just perfect. The way they change and grow is beauiful, inspirational, and encouraging. It was so easy to just connect with them. Such a great read, I highly recomend it."

    " I liked this book. Definitely had some funny moments. The start I thought was a little too long and went a little too in depth with a few of the characters shady pasts. I did enjoy the comparisons of a good horseman to the way God deals with each of us. Enjoyable read. "

    " I didn't think much about this book at all because it was so boring! It had a good story line but it was all shot to pieces because Wingate went into too much detail too the point of exhaustion! It was nice that she could be so descriptive, but it was to the point where it no longer held my interest and I was just skipping page after page of unnecessary information! I will not read this book again and was disappointed in it. Someone needs to write a book that is christian but not so boring! This is why I don't read christian books, but I thought I'd give this one a try anyway. Big mistake! "
