Five star reviews for “Riding Out the Rift”

LOVED the banter!

The characters are well done in this very Catholic story. There’s a lot of talk between the characters about their faith. It’s integral to their lives and to the story.

This one mixes in heart-break, jealousy, bullying, a bit of the occult, and a lot of horse talk, all with lots of fun banter.
It was a wonderful read! I loved revisiting the family and their friends. – MaryEllen

Loved it!

Wonderful continuation of Jack and Laura’s story. The horse bonding of Trixie to Laura and Marie and Zoe. I could feel the connections. Then seeing Joe, Jack and Laura’s son become a young man taking on responsibility at the stables and dealing with the pain of breakup. I laughed at Jack and his antics with the Priest. You just know they care deeply for each other. I laughed and gasped and held my breath at times, while reading this book. It had everything a great book needs. If you like clean, heartfelt stories, with a bit of horse knowledge thrown in, you can’t go wrong with ‘Riding Out the Rift’. I highly recommend. – Shelia Garrison

Foster kids and horses!

What a delightful book! It was fun. It was inspirational. It was hard to put down. I read it in one sitting!
Foster kids, kids with problems at home, illnesses in the family keep you wondering what’s next. And the best thing – HORSES! – Alice Shepherd

Another beautiful story at Harper’s Reunion

These times involving teen problems and from Laura’s point of view. Break-ups and bullying, all involving the whole community to resolve. Father Michael, Jake Harper and his jokes and the omnipresent love of horses. – Kindle customer

Riding Out the Rift: When Horses Touch a Woman’s Heart

Two women. One mare. Who will win her?

When Trixie, a beautiful buckskin mare, arrives at the family farm for training, Laura instantly falls for her. The two quickly bond and the mother-to-be entertains hopes of keeping this horse for herself and her baby daughter, due later this month.

When her son’s girlfriend suddenly breaks up with him, Laura worries that his autoimmune disease will flare up again. Then a teenage girl comes to the farm for horse therapy and Laura is concerned by the girl’s eerie behavior. When she discovers the girl’s deep-rooted ties to the occult, Father Michael is urgently called in. But the teen proves a stubborn case to crack.

Meanwhile an elderly widow wants to buy Trixie and Laura is torn between being selfish and doing the right thing. Matters aren’t helped by her husband Jack’s cutting remarks about being ‘overly emotional’ because of her ‘pregnancy hormones’ when she approaches him about purchasing the mare. Laura snaps and walks out on him.

Can Laura and Jack reconcile before the baby arrives? And can Laura let go of the mare she loves?
