Ann Hunter has already proven to be a great writer of fantasy fiction books and now I've had the chance to read and enjoy her book Born To Run, that will touch your heart and leave you remembering the story for a long time to come.
Here is a product description from the publisher:
"Alexandra Anderson is on the run from the law.
When the thirteen-year-old orphan can run no further, she collapses at the gates of the prestigious racing and breeding farm, North Oak. Horse racing strikes a deep chord in her. She hears a higher calling in the jingle jangle of bit and stirrup and in the thunder of hooves on the turn for home. It tells her she has a place in the world. But when the racing headlines find her on the front of every sports page, she realizes North Oak is no longer a safe haven.
Money can't buy love, but it just might secure Alex's future. Will everyone at North Oak still want to offer her a home when they learn of her unspeakable crime? " (Afterglow Productions)
Up to this point I had only read the fantasy fiction books from Ann Hunter, but what a treat to see what a versatile writer Ann is! I was drawn in with this story line of a young girl named Alex who is in the foster care system and who makes a choice that will alter her world. It is about her courage and determination and how true love can change a person's life. That not everyone will give up on you in hard times. Alex starts to learn about the world of racing and prized horses and she feels an instant connection to that life style and also to one of the horses. There's a secret unfolding in the story but you have to read it to find out what it is. Ann created characters that were so real and relatable, she is a gifted story teller and I am glad I have the opportunity to review these books. I look forward to reading more in the series and seeing what else unfolds. Overall was a great book to read!
