  • Faith, trust and horses

    One old farmhouse and the stories it can and will tell. The days of the Great Depression, the anxious times as family awaited news from the war front and now something very new. Ben has inherited the old farm that has been in the family for many years. Equine therapy helped him learn to accept some of the poor choices he made. Could he possible transform the old farm into Harmony Barn and thus pay that help forward? Ashley has long had a love for horses, to the point where she now participates in horse rescue. This therapy has helped her work through some of the issues of her youth. Will it be possible for them both to learn to trust in the Lord and His leading in this venture? The author has done a fabulous job of seamlessly joining the old story with the new, bringing life to the old farmhouse and giving the reader the feeling that everyone’s story just continues on. I appreciated the opportunity to learn more about what is involved in equine therapy. As a horse lover myself, I can just imagine what comfort can be derived from such a gentle giant. This ARC was received through NetGalley and CelebrateLit. These comments, impressions and opinions are my own.

  • Inspiring Must Read

    There is nothing like reading a Robin Lee Hatcher book, as when you turn the last page you feel encouraged in your faith and uplifted in your spirit. I love the time split sequences that incorporate a family Bible that has been passed down to a family member in need of it. The notes in the margins are just what is essential at that time. The difficult subjects of addictions and past mistakes are addressed in a tender and compassionate way. I was enthralled to read about equine therapy and the benefits of it as well as the behind the scenes of how it becomes a reality. Ashley and Ben are characters with depth and you will find yourself drawn into their stories and rooting for them. I found myself wiping tears in places, as it grabs your heart. Cross My Heart is book 2 in The Legacy of Faith Series and is just as engaging as book 1. You will walk away inspired and looking forward to more. I received a complimentary copy from CelebrateLit/publisher. The honest review and opinions are my own and were not required.

  • CROSS MY HEART

    CROSS. MY HEART. Robin Hatcher Ben had not lost the belief that God had given him the vision of a farm, the reality of having was when. A way to help others, and to make amends for what he did to his best friend. The name Ashley was given to him as someone who could help him. Meeting, and asking if she believed in God, which she did. She also believed in the healing of the spirit that horses give. Was interested in his equine project, and to see his set up, being agreeing to help. She knew the owners and places for the different type of horses he would need As they worked together,would forgiveness and healing from the past come. To soften hearts and love, a shared goal of helping others with horses. Beautiful story that flows with the love of God that these two share. Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion by Net Galley and Thomas Nelson.

  • Enjoyable Blend of Past and Present!

    3.5 stars "People failed people. Horses didn't." Having experienced people's failures to a greater extent than most, Ashley Showwalter has made it her mission in life to rescue horses. The big animals have always provided her with a sense of peace and contentment; it's only natural that she can't bear to see them mistreated. Ashley's own barn space is rather limited, so when a neighbor comes along seeking her advice about his vision for a equine therapy program, she jumps at the opportunity to become involved. . . . . . .she just didn't expect her heart to follow along so closely behind her head. "I just don't want you believing that you don't deserve more, that you don't deserve love and a family. God's plans are often more than we expect. We simply have to be open to them." Ben Henning has traveled the road of recovery for many of his young years. Now that he has been gifted with beautiful family property, he feels a calling to help others who are trying hard to become overcomers. Instantly attracted to Ashley Showalter's knowledge of horses and desire to help him succeed, Ben begins walking down a path that he never thought could be his; just what kind of partnership is forming. . . . and can it withstand the scrutiny of full disclosure? With Robin Lee Hatcher's easy going story-telling style, readers will grow to appreciate how the strength and the struggles of generations past can either aid or abet those upon whom they are bestowed. Yet the promise of God remains clear; "Be strong and of a good courage, be not afraid . . . .for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thought goest." I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher. The opinions stated above are entirely my own.

  • Doing God’s Will

    Although I think horses are beautiful animals, I’ve never been a fan. I have heard of equine therapy which is a great program. I know friends who have used this particular therapy with great success. That being said it did not hinder my enjoyment from reading this book. Both the main characters, Ashley and Ben, have a strong love of horses. Ashley takes in rescue horses and nourishes them back to health if they are not too far gone. Ben has a vision of having a equine therapy nonprofit service at his farm, given to him by his grandfather. They both have pasts to deal with and stumbling blocks along the way to their dreams. Ashley has an alcoholic brother she can’t forgive for all the trouble he’s caused, especially to their mother. Ben has a mother he’s never been close to that is trying to take the farm away from him and sell it to acquire the money for herself. It was fulfilling to see these characters develop, especially Ashley who had never given her heart to God. As an added bonus, interspersed among the chapters was a story of another Ben, (Ben’s great great grandfather) and his family during the trying times of WWII. This was truly an enjoyable few hours for me as I was transported to Idaho and a different place and time. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through Celebrate Lit but was not required to write a review positive or otherwise.
