Bestseller Snelling delivers a story that's endearing and touching. Although the romance between Maggie and Gil develops late in the story, the desire to root for Maggie will keep the reader engaged till the end.
During her stay in a women's correctional facility, Maggie Roberts is asked to participate in a program that rehabilitates horses. Her work with a thoroughbred gives her rare moments of joy and hope. When Maggie is paroled, she takes a job with the family who adopted the horse. Her only hope of a new life lies in the faith of a disabled boy, his father and the horse that brought them together. Can Maggie let go of her past and embrace a new future? (FAITHWORDS, Aug., 304 pp., $12.99)
