RIDING OUT THE DEVIL – The Story of a Wounded Horse Healer
Jack is only interested in helping horses. Period. Human owners irritate him.
He’s working with an anxious gelding when a mystery woman calls his cell phone. As she does once each year, she makes the same short statement before hanging up.
Already rattled, that evening he receives bad news which sends him back to his native England for the first time in 17 years.
The evil secrets he’s had under tight control for nearly two decades quickly begin to unravel, and on returning to his Maryland farm he is forced to share an embarrassing truth with total strangers.
A wounded Jack opens his reluctant heart to a boy in dire need of what only the trainer can offer, and discovers a talent for healing more than horses.
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
