Publisher's Summary

In the hills of Tennessee, Shane Carson, a gifted, nationally-recognized horseman, is living the good life. When a mysterious mustang shows up on his farm, Shane doesn't know how - or why - the horse appeared, but the horse's distinctive brand identifies her. She is one of the Spirit Horses, a rare, wild herd that runs free on the Shoshone reservation in Wyoming. Watched over for centuries in the tribe's ancestral valleys, these exquisite horses, according to belief, provide a link to the afterlife.

When tragedy strikes in his life, Shane nearly loses his will to live - but for one promise he made to his young son: to return the mustang to her rightful home.

On this bittersweet journey, Shane finds a world where tradition reigns, and ancient beliefs transcend modern logic. In this magnificent expanse of blue sky and wide open spaces, love is alive, but hate, intolerance, and greed threaten to close in. To make good on his vow, Shane must face the danger that threatens these horses, the tribe's legacy, and his destiny.

    "Loved this story"

    I really enjoyed this story. I like Shane and his family is wonderful. Tragedy threatens to overcome him and he works to recover by keeping a promise that turns out to be more difficult than he first imagined. A wild mustang that has become such a good friend to his family is the focus of this promise, to simply set her free in her birthplace becomes alot more than Shane bargained for.

    Through all this he learns to heal and love again.

    The end surprised me in a very good way, even though I would have wished things to go differently, It was the right way to end this story. Bittersweet and a story I will remember for a long time.

    "Truly awful"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The idea was good. I was really disappointed by the standard of writing and narration! A waste of a credit!


    What will your next listen be?

    Anything not written by Alan S. Evans or narrated by Ted Brooks!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    stilted style. He sounded as if he were reading a script - badly!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment
