RIDING OUT THE DEVIL – The Story of a Wounded Horse Healer
Jack’s only interest is helping troubled horses. Period. Humans irritate him.
When bad news sends him back to his native England for the first time in two decades, dark secrets erupt from his past, secrets he fled the country to escape.
On Jack’s return, Father Michael asks him to help Joe, a teenager in desperate need of what only the trainer can offer. Jack hasn’t been to church in years and wants nothing to do with the kid.
Then he learns the true nature of Joe’s problems – and is forced to face his own wounds.
Will the horseman stubbornly persist in bitter isolation?
Or will he open his heart and use his God-given talents to heal the boy?
Reviews for Riding Out the Devil
‘I had no idea where this story line was going to take me; therefore I was so very pleasantly surprised, it introduced me to a man of Faith. Jack is a Man who loves & nurtures horses. He is a transplant from England and now lives in the U.S.
‘I couldn’t put the book down. The story line was enjoyable and believable.’ – Kindle Customer
‘A solid 5-stars and that from a Baptist for a book by a Catholic. This, for me, was an especially enjoyable read. The characters, the action, the circumstances, both past and present, all came together in an unusual story of resisting – yielding – and finally embracing a short string of opportunities to make life-changing use of a God given gift. This is a delightful tale of horses and people being helped and healed physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Thoughts and words flow pleasantly throughout this first book of The Jack Harper Trilogy causing me to look forward to reading the next installments of the series.’ – Riyahguy
