I could really see the characters were true. They were easy to understand and care about. The only thing I had a problem with was why she did not call the police right away when the sabatage was discovered.

Every time I think I know what is happening, then I think someone else is the one who is behind everything going wrong at the ranch.
This book has a few themes in it. Main one is forgiveness or bitter and angry choices we can choose. That God does not leave us alone it is us that leaves him.
This book had me sobbing in a few places. About a horse! animals are good friends and love us.
This is a clean read. It does mention God and scriptures but not preachy.
Chance is adorable little boy.
I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it in exchange by Netgalley.
