Twelve-year-old Winnie Willis has a way with horses. She can gentle the wildest mare, but other parts of her life don't always come as easily. Along with her dad and sister, Lizzy, Winnie is learning how to live without her mom, who was also a natural horse gentler. As Winnie teaches her horses about unconditional love and blind trust, God shows Winnie that he can be trusted too. Readers will be hooked on the series' vivid characters, whose quirky personalities fill Winnie's life with friendship and adventure.
In #2 Eager Star, Winnie learns something about people as well as horses when she begins to value the power of praise and encouragement.
Dear Dandi, I have to tell you how thankful I am for your series Winnie the Horse Gentler. My daughter really treasures horses, and has so many times been disappointed (as I have) with many books out there about horses which use language and attitudes not beautiful to the Lord. So, when Kayla found this series advertised in some way in her horse magazine, she decided to try it out. Oh my... she is hooked! She just finished book five and ended up crying at the end of the book when the old horse dies giving birth. Your writing style made her feel like it was real! I just had to write you and thank you for taking the time to write such a beautiful series. I am thrilled with the scripture references, mentions of prayer, and even her anti-abortion stance. Standing up for what is right is not always easy, as a young child and even as an adult (who is an author), but I commend you for doing just that! I hope that you will consider writing other books along these lines! We will definitely make sure that we recommend this series to other horse lovers like Kayla! God bless you, Dandi! Very sincerely, Stephanie B.
