"A Noble Spirit" presents common issues in the lives of small-town America people in this story of loss, love, estrangement and reconciliation. Centered on a newly renovated horse farm, a teen girl named Mandy finds friendship and encouragement from Noble, a 20-year-old Thoroughbred who is isolated from other horses - the way she feels from other girls at school - because of a weakness. He is blind in his right eye. Her dad loses his truck driving job; her friend Anne has a single mom with panic disorder; the farm manager is a wounded war veteran with an amazing way with horses; the horse farm's owner has a mysterious past; the ER doctor keeps a sad secret; and a local businessman from Mexico has some of his family here illegally. It's a story with someone every reader will know -- in their family, workplace or community. How these people deal with the issues and how friendships develop will warm your heart and lift your spirits.
