Publisher's Description

Jeth Cavanaugh is searching for a new life along one of Pennsylvania’s mountain ridges when he stumbles upon a stable of show jumpers owned by Rob and Katie Chilton. Throw in a volatile stallion named Dynamo, and Jeth will do anything to work there. Jeth earns his living by training and showing Rob’s jumpers, but Dynamo is his primary passion.
Everything changes when God enters his life—in the unconventional form of a hard slap by an old girlfriend—and ignites a new, greater passion within Jeth. But along with fervor comes fear at the undeniable evidence of God’s hand on his life. Inexplicable events, both good and bad, make him moan plaintively, "Why does God do this to me? I get the feeling I’m being set up for something."
He is, indeed. Jeth’s life is anything but predictable, much like the God he serves. The real Dynamo and his ultimate trainer emerge out of an excruciating mix of disaster and brokenness, which are never beyond the reach of redemption.

Author Bio

Eleanor K. Gustafson has been publishing both fiction and nonfiction since 1978. Her short stories and articles have appeared in a number of national and local magazines. The Stones, published by Whitaker House in 2009, was her fourth novel. In many of her stories, Eleanor explores the cosmic struggle between good and evil in light of God’s overarching work of redemption. A graduate of Wheaton College in Illinois, she has been actively involved in church life as a minister’s wife, teacher, musician, writer, and encourager. She has enjoyed a variety of experiences, from horses to house building, all of which have helped bring color and humor to her fiction. She and her husband live in Massachusetts, where he teaches philosophy. They travel extensively, spend time with their three children and eight grandchildren, and enjoy camping at the family forest in Chester, Vermont.
 

Editorial Reviews

In Dynamo, Eleanor Gustafson weaves four threads—the man, his horse, his faith, and his God—into a tapestry of redemption. You won’t need to be a lover of fine horses to care about the journey of one man and how his horse Dynamo took him on the ride of his life. You’ll find wisdom in this journey.
—Jane Kirkpatrick, New York Times best-selling author, All Together in One Place

Ellie Gustafson’s newest offering, Dynamo, is aptly named—a dynamic story, well-written and engaging, expertly carrying the reader from page to page. Highly recommended!
—Kathi Macias, Award-winning author of more than thirty books, including the Extreme Devotion series

Once again, Eleanor Gustafson has woven a story that will linger in her readers’ minds long after the cover is closed. It is a riveting tale, set in a world of high-stakes horse shows and stable intrigue, and an unflinching look at some of the best and worst in human relationships. Through experiences that range from the mundane to the mystical, we see and feel Jeth’s struggle. Surrounded by people who are, in the extraordinary way of ordinary people, heroes and failures, victims and villains, he begins to discern the path he is to follow. As is so often the case in real life, that path leads neither where he planned nor where he feared.
—Sally Wilkins, Teacher and author, Sports and Games of Medieval Cultures

Packed with the fascinating world of show horses, Dynamo is a rich tale of redemption, renewal, and hope. Readers will appreciate the fast-moving plot, and root for the lifelike characters. May God "hug your soul" as you read this story.
—Alice J. Wisler, Author, Rain Song, How Sweet It Is, and Hatteras Girl

In typical Ellie Gustafson style, Dynamo is a complex interweaving of characters and relationships that wrestles with some of the central issues of life. The problem of good versus evil plays out in the world of show horses in a way that fascinated me, despite my being totally unfamiliar with that milieu. That the book held my interest speaks well of Ellie’s skill as a storyteller. Please wonder with me: Will this tale get the sequel it deserves?
—John A. Nunnikhoven, Author, Voices Together: A Guide to Praying the Psalms

You’ll like this book—especially if you enjoy memorable people, frustrating problems, and unexpected outcomes. Eleanor Gustafson writes a stimulating story about the fascinating world of show horses as it intersects with the life-changing world of discipleship. Her characters persuade us that even imperfect Christians can demonstrate wisdom and courage in our secular world.
—Dr. David A. Dean, Author, Good Grief, and Professor Emeritus, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Hamilton, Massachusetts

Ellie writes you into the heart of her story, and you can’t get out until it’s over!
—Lois Shaw, Coauthor, Today’s All-Star Missions Churches and Missions in the Twenty-First Century 

As Dick Francis brought detective fiction to the world of horse racing, Ellie Gustafson brings theology and the redemptive grace of God to the world of show horses. We find suspense and mystery, as well, as the hand of God shapes the lives of Jeth and Janni. Interludes between action sequences provide quiet moments for the reader to ponder the deeper mysteries of the Word of God.
—Dr. George Varghese, Principal Researcher, Microsoft Research; winner of the 2014, Koji Kobayashi Award for Computers and Communications
