Product Description

Product Description

Twelve-year-old Winnie Willis has a way with horses. She can gentle the wildest mare, but other parts of her life don't always come as easily. Along with her dad and sister, Lizzy, Winnie is learning how to live without her mom, who was also a natural horse gentler. As Winnie teaches her horses about unconditional love and blind trust, God shows Winnie that he can be trusted too. Readers will be hooked on the series' vivid characters, whose quirky personalities fill Winnie's life with friendship and adventure.

In #1 Wild Thing, Winnie's fearful heart finally begins to trust God again as she tries to gentle the horse of her dreams, Wild Thing.

From the Back Cover

"I have to have that horse. And I'll do whatever it takes to get her."
Twelve-year-old Winnie Willis loves horses-just like her mother did. But since her mom died two years ago, Winnie, her sister, Lizzy, and her father have moved five times. Winnie never cared much-until now. She has a chance to buy the horse of her dreams at an upcoming auction-but how will she ever earn enough money? More importantly, how can she possibly convince her dad not to move them to another town . . . again?

How can she possibly raise enough money?And how can she convince her dad not to make them move again? WILD THING includes a page showing various parts of a horse, two pages of "Horse Talk," and a "Horse-O-Pedia."

A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I adore this book! I was hooked after I read it for the first time. I've read every one in the series, and can't wait until she writes more. This book has 3 very important ingredients to make a good book: God, family, and horses!

You've gotta read this book!!

HASH(0xa2e4669c) out of 5 stars Enjoyed it as an adult June 15 2011
By Jennifer Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
As an adult with no children, I decided to give this a read just because it looked like a fun book that I could read quickly. I wasn't disappointed. One thing I dislike in Christian fiction books is a preaching style, and I didn't find that. Winnie relates to God honestly. She blames herself for her mother's death and while that is not the focus of this book, she comes to terms with that in the book. She deals with moving excessively, kids who aren't very nice to her or their animals, and even the fact her family doesn't have a lot of extra money.

While it's geared at the age 9-12 age group, I believe younger children would enjoy this if they had it read to them (although depending on the child, you may want to edit about Winnie's mother dying.) Although the main characters are girls, there are boys involved to enough of an extent I think any boy with an interest in horses would enjoy this enough, but as we all know girls of the 9-12 age group adore horses, so while it's aimed at girls, I believe it's written in a style that would be interesting enough to boys.
