Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Long the family hellion, successful horse trainer Zack Harrigan rethinks his life after yet another barroom brawl—this time defending a blind man from a bully—and takes a hard look at training miniature horses as service guides. His work with the miniature Rosebud attracts the attention of Mandy Pajeck, who is desperate to find a service animal for her blind and difficult 19-year-old brother. While Zach has serious doubts about letting Rosebud work with Mandy's belligerent, spoiled sibling, he has no doubts about her. Her way with horses is magical and so is her way into his heart. But Mandy has no plans to marry—anyone. VERDICT Long noted for her remarkable ability to incorporate into her fiction with seamless sensitivity serious social issues and physical disabilities, Anderson has done it again, beautifully, penning another heartwarming classic overflowing with family, ranch life detail, humor, and love. A touching addition to the "Harrigan Family" series. Anderson (Early Dawn) lives in central Oregon.
