The Horse of My Heart: Stories of the Horses We Love by Callie Smith Grant


 Shining coat flashing in the sun. Silky mane rippling in the wind. A toss of the head and the stamp of a hoof.
Few of God's creatures are as noble and soul-stirring as the horse. Even those of us who aren't lucky enough to have horses of our own seem to have an innate desire to connect with these beautiful, regal beasts. As children we read stories about them, collected models of them, and tacked posters of them up on our walls. Throughout history they have carried us and calmed us, pulled our loads and pulled at our heartstrings. They give us a taste of wildness and yet make us feel at home.

In this inspiring collection, you'll meet horses who show up at the right time, who help their humans learn important truths, and who rescue the very people who rescued them. These true stories of horses and the people who love them are sometimes touching, sometimes humorous, and sometimes miraculous. Always they are inspiring, like the horses themselves. They will touch your heart, renew your spirit, and show you that surely God had us in mind when he created these magnificent creatures.

My Review

Such beautiful and intelligent animals that I have always admired and so I chose to review this book.
As you begin each short story will touch your heart, and you might want to have the tissues handy. What a blessing in their lives these graceful animals are, well most are!
There is a magical connection between these animals and humans, and when these individual horses enter the human’s lives, it seems something wonderful is about to happen. Memories that follow them for the remainder of their lives, and they share them with us in such moving stories.
They seem to arrive and be there with these people when they need them the most, and have a calming and loving effect on them. This book is going to touch in special ways, and you will see God’s hand in this, he made these amazing animals. Once you open that first page and begin your journey, your going to want to keep reading on to the next and then the next.
I received this book through Revell Blogger Book Tours and was not required to give a positive review.
