Twelve-year-old Winnie Willis has a way with horses. She can gentle the wildest mare, but other parts of 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 teachers her horses about unconditional love and blind trust, God shows Winnie that He can be trusted as well. Readers will be hooked by the series' vivid cast of characters whose quirky personalities fill Winnie's life with friendship and adventure.
In Eager Star, Winnie wants to be a famous horse gentler. She already has one client, and a second has just signed on. But the new client has given her only a week to train a hose for an important race and the rider will be Grant Baines--the most popular boy in school. To him, Winnie is invisible. This is her chance to be a part of the "in" crowd at school, that is, if she succeeds. How can she ever train the horse and Gant to work together in one week? Recommended for ages 8 to 12.
