But before she is able to mention it to them, they inform her that they just rented the house to the new elementary music teacher. Brent Travis is a man trying to start over. He has left behind the faith he once claimed as his own and is desperately trying to have nothing to do with God.

Pleasantly surprised. This book was not what I expected! It was much, much more! I found
Horse In The Wilderness to be a heart warming and touching story of romance and mystery.

Here's what it's about . . .
A missing horse. A missing boy. A vandal with an unexplained grievance against a local farmer. A young woman who drives as though pursued by demons.
An impulsive offer to help locate the missing horse draws Brent Travis unwillingly into the affairs of the Parker family. Are they the gracious, Go

With a degree in accounting, Autumn had spent a year and a half working in Little Rock, but the company folded and she h

Horse in the Wilderness by Debbie Eckles was an amazing read. I enjoy reading horse stories and this one has enough intrigue in it that you don’t want to put it down.
Autumn Parker feels like her life is at a dead end. She spends her days working in her father’s feed store and then goes home to her parents, brother, and horse. One of her brothers is a teacher and he and his wife invite her to go riding out at the old family cabin outside of town during spring break. While she’s riding, she contem

Great book for horse lovers.

Readers will be able to understand the equestrian terminology if they already have a background. I found it hard to visualize at important and crucial moments because I do not understand things related to horses.

There is a lot of detail in this book. Most of the time I find too much detail to be pointless, but it fits this book. It is a very good story and PG written (the author would not even use the word sex).

There are important lessons to be learned in this book, e

There's a good story in this book, but unfortunately, it was published before that story could get polished. This is an example of a book that needed editing on a level it just didn't get. The grammar was great, right on, no problems. The story and plot, though, could have used some work. The characters were almost fleshed out but seemed cardboard and weak and the storyline was predictable at best. I probably wouldn't have finished this book if I hadn't signed up to read it through BookSneeze.

My Thoughts On The Book: This was my first book by Debbie Eckles and I can promise you it will not be my last. The story is great! The chapters were a bit long. The characters are real life and personable. I knew and related to these people! The end is great. The plot is relatable to the readers life. LOVED IT!

When Autumn looses her horse in the mountains she's devastated. But her parents new tenant, Brent, offers his help. Autumn is cautiously optimistic that she'll find her horse and a new friendship with Brent. But it's hard with vandals, secrets, and a missing boy.

The story was entertaining, romantic, heart warming, and filled with references to faith. The story was the meandering type with lots of extra details. There were almost several stories going on at once. The writing style reminded me of

Really nice story. Starts off with Dub a little boy, who wants to ride a horse and takes one without asking or telling anyone early in the morning, and he falls off and the horse keeps going. Autumn is sad that her horse is now missing and continues to search for him, refusing to get another horse even when her brother Liam offers to help pay for one. A new music teacher is in town and plays good on the piano but not as good on the clarinet. There is a vandal who is continuously vandalizing the ...more

This was a diverting read, great for horse lovers or musicians. It's a nice little Christian romance with a bit of suspense thrown in. For full review, see here.

This book is really not what it looks like. It has a horses. It has a Romance in it between Austin and Brent. Will you find out what Brent is hiding? What all the mystery or even Dub finds out? It deals with family and missing folks a bit. Dub happens to see something bad.
