I saw this book come up in my suggested list but it was nothing like books I had read before.
This story is filled with the hope we all have for children. That every single child has a past and does not let it define them but somehow finds a way to find themselves. To take the good and the bad out of their life and mold themselves in to.what they alome desire. To not give up hope and take in all the other people surrounding them, the environment around them, to focus on the positives the world gives every single one of us.

Everyone knows a woman who loves horses. Maybe she rides whenever she can find the time, maybe she rode as a young girl, or maybe she just devoured the Black Stallion books. Twenty years ago, Nancy Shulins let go of one dream - having a child - and worked toward another one: learning to ride and, eventually, having her own horse. In the process, she learned what it means to love another being so much you can’t imagine life without them.

I love the narrator! She sounds just like every boarder I know! Her realistic tones when she tells stories of her negative thoughts as we horse owners do, makes me feel like my crazy thoughts are normal! Lol!
Going through horse ownership for the first time, i really appreciate her story!

As the sole survivor of the car crash that killed her parents, grief-stricken paramedic Kit MacKlenna is stunned to learn her life is built on lies. A legacy from her father includes a faded letter and a well-worn journal. The journal reveals she was abandoned as a baby 160 years ago. The only clues to her identity are a blood-splattered shawl, a locket with the portrait of a 19th century man, and a Celtic brooch with magical powers.

This book creates an embrace of family. The manner in which the author describes each family brings familiarity of the bonds between each member. The story of love between the main characters is timeless In its way of not losing each persons individuality.

Wildflower is a portrait of Drew's life in stories as she looks back on the adventures, challenges, and incredible experiences of her earlier years. It includes tales of living on her own at 14 (and how laundry may have saved her life), getting stuck in a gas station overhang on a cross-country road trip, saying good-bye to her father in a way only he could have understood, and many more adventures and lessons that have led her to the successful, happy, and healthy place she is today.

I love how she tells her life's story unapologetic and with respect to any harm she may have caused. I respect her even more for her success and she is very motivating!
All stories are great and she gives so much life to each story that you can picture her every emotion.

Any form of extremist is dangerous. It's heartbreaking the evil that religion extremist does to human souls. I respect her story and her strength and sharing so much of what she believed in for 30 years and the heartbreak of betrayal.
