Review: The Horse of My Heart by:Callie Smith Grant

The Horse of My Heart: Stories of the Horses We Love
About the Book:
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:

 I’ve always had an odd infatuation with horses. I’ve always wanted one even though we of course have neither the money nor time that it takes to have a horse. Instead I drowned myself in books and movies about them. So when I had the chance to read The Horse of My Heart, I of course was ecstatic.

The Horse of My Heart is a wonderful book full of stories about different people’s various experiences with horses. Each story has an important truth that was taught to the owner at one time or another by their horse. I really enjoyed how each story was wonderfully wrote. Being the horse lover, I am I’d say this book was beautifully put together with each story complementing the others perfectly.

The Horse of My Heart is just one of Callie Smith Grant’s many books. This book was a wonderful read and can’t wait see what this editor has in store for us next.
