Inspired by a real horse rescue, Christa’s Luck is a teen fiction novel about Christa’s love for an endangered herd of wild horses and how her special connection with them inspires her to look beyond her own unforgivable mistakes and try again. She rises up to become a horse advocate at fourteen, whose passion and heart move an entire town to take action. In the vein of The Horse Whisperer and the Black Stallion, Christa’s Luck is an epic adventure story of courage, friendship and freedom. A female heroine who wears cowboy boots instead of glass slippers. A romance that’s compelling but rated G. A story that’s about grit more than polish, and a girl who has some serious growing to do, but who faces her worst fears because of her connection with a herd of wild horses. Christa’s Luck is a coming of age story that cherishes the wild spirit in girls as well as horses, and speaks to the shared vulnerability and power of both.
