If you enjoy small town inspirational romance, you'll love this new story Chasing her Dream by Jennifer Slattery.
I was drawn in by the abused horses needing a home. Rheanna had just inherited her uncle's ranch when a herd of abandoned horses are sent to her ranch. She wants to help them but is overwhelmed with figuring out her uncle's finances and why the IRS wants money. But she can't turn her back on the horses that have nowhere else to go. Dave agrees to stay long enough to help care for the horses until somoene is hired, but he'd run out on her before. Can she trust him to stay this time? She's used to people leaving her, Dave, her father, her ex-husband. Will this time be different? She'd promised to never let anyone hurt her like that again. But will she learn something about love and trust from the abused horses she's taken in?
Dave is ready to go back to Wyoming. His ranch had been flooded. But he can't leave Rheanna, or her daughter Amelia. He believes God will turn all things to good. He's waiting to see how that will happen. When he has to do the unthinkable to save one of the rescued horses, what will that mean for his future? Will he lose his ranch and the woman he loves?
My favorite scene is when Amelia and Dave are spending time together and they draw kindness hands. Amelia states, "We should teach the horses that word, too. Don't you think, Mr. Dave? That way they can all be friends and won't act mean to one another. We learned that in VBS. That God wants us to use our hands and our mouths to be nice to each other." If only we could all show kindness to one another.
Chasing her Dream is an engaging story of community and love, and seeing how forgiveness can change your life.
