"Joyful Spirit" is the sequel to "Mounted" in the "Bittersweet Farm" series. We get to pick up from a rather torturous cliffhanger from the first installment and move into the next phase of the story.

When I read "Mounted", I really liked Talia. She was a great character. In "Joyful Spirit", you get to see her more annoying qualities. I found myself wanting to slap her most of the time and tell her to stop nagging already. On the opposite side of the coin, you start to see that Greer has a human

1 was more readable.

The story was good and getting the horse info correct made it even better. But an editor is sorely needed.

I am reading the series for the second time. I am still a big fan and enjoy the spirit of the story, but Talia is a real pain! Greer is supposed to be the real mare in the series so far but her half-sister is a character I want to slap and tell her to grow up and get over herself and stop smothering Lockie! I had forgotten how awful she is- doesn't want to do this, don't want to do that...but that is the real brilliance of Barbara Morgenroth! She makes her characters jump off the page, well some ...more

This is an amazing second book to this great series. It really pulls you in farther and makes you want to continue reading the series. Barbara Morgenroth made Joyful Spirit a great follow up of the first. I cannot wait to read the rest of the series as I am sure everyone cannot wait. If you are in anyway have an interest in horses this is the series to read.

In this book we get valuable insight into the family and friends of Talia and Greer, and the circumstances that have shaped who they are. Another good read by Barbara Morgenroth,
