Horse in the Wildness

Book Title: Horse in the Wilderness

Author: Debbie Eckles

Publisher: WestBow Press

Pub Date: January 16th 2013

Genres: Animals, Romance, Mystery

Declaimer: I got this e-book to review for an Honest Review. The review is from BookLookBlogger.

Synopsis: A missing horse. A missing boy. A vandal with an unexplained grievance against a local farmer. A young woman who drives as though pursued by demons.

An impulsive offer to help locate the missing horse draws Brent Travis unwillingly into the affairs of the Parker family. Are they the gracious, God-fearing Christians they appear to be, or are they the hypocrites of Brent’s past experience?

Autumn Parker’s friendly jibe—quitter—cuts closer than she knows to the heart of the man who has lost his faith in God, in honor, and in loyalty. Caught in a battle between the forces of depression telling him he has nothing to live for and the opportunity to build a new life for himself in rural Orchard Springs, Arkansas, Brent is forced to re-examine everything he believes.

When the vandal strikes again, Brent takes the harshest blow yet—and this time he may not recover.

My Thoughts:

This book is really not what it looks like. It has a horses. It has a Romance in it between Austin and Brent. Will you find out what Brent is hiding? What all the mystery or even Dub finds out? It deals with family and missing folks a bit. Dub happens to see something bad. Do they find  the missing horse or not. You can read it for yourselves.

Contact Author: Nicole Helget Goodreads Profile

Synopsis: From Goodreads
When their mom said she was sending twelve-year-old Percy and Penny and their little brother, Pauly, to stay with an uncle they’d never met, she tried to make it sound better by saying that Uncle Stretch’s farm was a horse camp. Well, the farm animals are actually chickens and pigs, and the only two horses are mean-tempered and not too keen on being ridden by kids. As Penny puts it, “This farm is like the eighteenth century, but way worse! The water has a rusty taste, and all the meat used to be animals on the farm.” If there is one thing the twins can agree on, it’s that between endless chores, no Internet or cell phones, and the prospect that their mom might have to stay in jail (even though some people say she’s a hero), horse camp is a big, fat joke. Will they ever have a real family again? Or is there a family for them right here?

 
My Thoughts on this book:
This book is read though the eyes of Percy and Penny. The twins take turns tell you about their lives and about their family and trouble though their eyes. They are staying with their Uncle Stretch for the summer, for their mother is sent to jail.
They are trying adjust to all the changes that are happening to their family. Percy and Penny and their little brother Pauly are sent to live with their uncle until their mom and dad try to work things out. Percy and Penny are living with an uncle they do not know.
Penny writes in her diary and to her mom and dad though out the book. She also writing to someone in Africa that she is sponsoring. Percy tell his story though first person and describes it as a book read it. It make sent though this point a view. As for Penny is always writing in diary or writing a letter to family member. You can see the the twins moods and see the changes though the book.
I really can not tell that plot of this story is? All I could get out the story is that the twins were trying to adjust a new life and new family members or people. I only could get is that it was being read though the twins perceptive or though there eyes. You can make your own decision.

Firstborn

Book Title: Firstborn

You also get a look at what a boy has to go though. Tiadrone stuggles with herself and her female. Their are trials that Tiadrone goes though. She also finds the truth as well.
