Overview


The Miller family’s move from Ohio to Montana was, for the most part, uneventful, except that Sadie Miller had to leave her beloved horse, the palomino named Paris. Still, she likes the Montana snows and her job at Aspen East Ranch serving the ranch hands.

Unexpectedly, Ezra appears, the man who seems to be perfect in every way and fully intends to marry Sadie. But does she love him back? And who is this fascinating Mark, who helps rescue a dying horse and shows up at the Amish hymn-sing though he is English? Why can’t she get his dark eyes and tall stature out of her mind?

Now Sadie’s own close-knit family is falling apart. Mam claims her head is cluttered and unclear, and she no longer trusts herself to make a chocolate cake from scratch or to cut Reuben’s hair in a straight line. The worst part is that Dat refuses to acknowledge Mam’s struggles.

Sadie finds some refuge in Nevaeh, a black and white paint horse. But when a dreadful accident involving wild horses occurs, Sadie must move forward into the unknown future.

Will Dat let Mam seek professional help? Will Mam be willing to go?

Will Mark be at the next hymn-sing? Is he Amish or English? Will he like her favorite pink dress?

Will she see the wild horses again? Why do these phantom-like animals take her breath away every time they appear on the horizon?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Byler (Lizzie Searches for Love series) is a gifted writer whose novel of the Amish in Montana will be savored as much by those who love horse stories as by devotees of Amish romance. While it features the requisite mysterious, handsome stranger, the most emotionally powerful passages aren’t between Sadie Miller and her man but Sadie and her horses. The Millers have moved to a new Amish settlement, where Sadie faces hardships ranging from the loss of a beloved horse to the serious mental illness of a family member. Byler is Amish, which sets this book apart from the genre both in the rich detail of Amish life and in the lack of melodrama over disappointments and tragedies. Sadie’s quick forgiveness and acceptance of God’s will may feel unsatisfying to some readers, but faithfully reflects a core Amish virtue. These characters aren’t stereotypes. They can relish a visit to a shopping mall without either being tempted to materialism or fearing condemnation from their community. Sadie demonstrates courage, compassion and contentment, and Byler’s writing will leave readers eager for the next book in the series. (Oct.)
Library Journal
When Sadie Miller's Amish family moves from Ohio to Montana, she must leave behind her favorite horse and deal with the illness of a family member. She takes a job at a ranch and meets a mysterious, handsome stranger. As a writer who is Amish, Byler draws on her personal experience to present an authentic portrait of life in the sect. VERDICT This gentle romance by the author of the "Lizzie Searches for Love" series will please CF readers who can't get enough fiction about the Plain People. Fans of Byler's previous novels are sure to relish it, as will those who read Cindy Woodsmall and Wanda E. Brunstetter.

     More beautiful wild horses abound in Linda Byler's Wild Horses.

     More beautiful wild horses abound in Linda Byler's Wild Horses.  Linda is an Amish author and so her writing is much more true to the fact to me.   Sadie is thrown into a new world as the family moved from Ohio to Montana.   Change can be both difficult and exciting for all of us and Sadie is certainly discovering that.   Will young Sadie find love in the beautiful Montana?  Will her mother receive the proper medical intervention she needs so desperately?   
    This series is written for young readers but is certainly very entertaining for adult readers as well.  This is a good clean book for young readers.    
    I received a free pdf version of this book from netgalley and the publishers in exchange for my honest review.

    Byler, great amish fiction author

    She doesn't hesitate to " go there"! Sadie is NOT a single girl working, living @ home, over 20 yrs old so that entire brethren worry she will remain a ' maedel'. This is a slightly dysfunctional family, by amish standards. Daed makes mistakes, maam isn't growing celery or any garden! And bad things happen, like real life. But, their love for God & each other, trust, gets them thru to victory everytime! Have read 2 books in this series & purchased 3rd tonight! Can't wait to get started! READ IT NOW, you will be so sucked in!! And SO GLAD YOU DID!
