Review of Sonrise Stables-Carrie and Bandit by Vicki Watson

    Pictures,  Synopsis and Author info from CWA website.

Carrie and Bandit continues where Rosie and Scamper left off.
Carrie can't believe it—she has a horse of her own and is only weeks away from being adopted by the most loving family she's ever known. But Bandit is harder to manage than she first imagined—and the adoption might not go as smoothly as she thought either. When a bad decision jeopardizes everything, Carrie learns what it means to be forgiven and truly loved.

My Review:

I really enjoyed this book.  It is geared for young girls, but I think anyone could enjoy this.  It is a charming story of a youg girl who is being adopted into a loving Christian family.  This family has a love of horses, as does Carrie, the girl being adopted.  Carrie has some pitfalls in this story, but finds out that her new family loves her no matter what.  After her adoption, Carrie,  Rosie, mom and grandma, Carries's new family, go on a trail ride.  Grandma and her horse get into an accident, but alas all will be well with a little time.

This is a great series to reinforce to young girls the importance of GOD's love and the love of family.  Anyone who has a love of horses will enjoy this book.  Great job Vicki Watson, keep up the good work.  Can't wait to read the next book in this series.

About the Author: Vicki Watson
My love of horses began when a teenage neighbor offered me my first ride, on the back of her horse. From my 8-year-old perspective, it seemed like the biggest horse in the world. From that moment on, I was addicted. Horses were to become a very important part of my life, although I never could have imagined, at the time, how much God would teach me about Himself and my relationship to Him through these wonderful animals.
The Sonrise Stable series combines my love of God and horses in stories that I hope will help children learn more about both. I have a vision for ten initial books in the series, taking the main characters through one year. Beyond that I'll see where God leads me.
I have been blessed with three daughters and homeschooled each of them through high school. I enjoy trail riding my Rocky Mountain mare, Nikki, hiking, photography, and playing guitar. I work from home as a and computer programmer and enjoy the variety and flexibility that allows.
