When I saw a book about
horses I desperately wanted to pick it up but I already had my plate full so
the second best option was to feature this book on my blog and come back to it
later when I have more time.
So today, I'm featuring
a spotlight for Selah's Stolen Dream, the fourth book in the Dream
Horse Adventures by Susan Count.
Thirteen-year-old Selah’s perfect life unravels when her
beloved horse is stolen. Then ten-year-old Emma buys the dream of a lifetime at

and story ideas.
Susan is a lifelong equestrian and is owned by a Rocky
Mountain Horse. She is convinced that the only thing more delightful than
riding the forest trails might be writing horse adventure stories. She invites
you to saddle up and ride along.
