Product Description

Tricia Evanston has grown up riding and training horses with her father at their family's horse ranch, Runnin' On Farms. Through challenges and triumphs, Tricia learns to trust in God as she pursues her dream of racing in the big leagues.

The Race

Tricia can't wait to turn sixteen--then she'll be old enough to race her horse Spitfire at nearby Portland Meadows Racetrack. But her father's sudden health crisis devastates the entire family and could derail her jockey dreams.

Eagle's Wings

As her father's illness takes its toll on his body and on the family business, Tricia earns extra money by racing. But if she can't bring her grades up, her parents may put a stop to the only thing she truly enjoys.

Go for the GloryQuickly becoming a local jockey phenom, Tricia begins to set her sights on the prestigious Santa Anita Derby--until an accident keeps her out of the saddle for weeks! Will she recover in time?

Kentucky Dreamer

Preparations to race in the Kentucky Derby are under way, but when Tricia is involved in a tragic accident at her home track, she can't shake the haunting images. Her racing suffers, and all of a sudden Kentucky seems farther away than ever.

Call for Courage

The Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing is actually within reach for Tricia and Spitfire! Tricia's lifelong dreams are clouded only by her father's health. Is he strong enough to see his daughter in the biggest race of her life?

    I was very disapointed in both these books. I had heard many good reviews about the author, and with expectations of an enjoyable read (Or at least a readable book), I found it was quite boring and I haven't got through any of the books yet, I own both collections.

    I originally read this book as a copy from the public library. I liked it so much that I decided to purchase a copy and give it as a gift. I really liked the fact, since it is a series, there were five books in one.

    I absolutely LOVED this book!! The way Trisha fought a true battle physically, mentally, and spiritually all tied in with horses, it made me look back over my own life! However, I was slightly disappointed that I could pretty much guess what would happen before the end by reading the back cover, but other than that it was a terrific book that still contained shocking curve balls to what I expected. Plus, it was relieving to have a Christian book with no bad language to watch out for! I would suggest it to ANYONE!! (p.s. I'm a teenager, but I still think it would be great [and appropriate] for readers of all ages)
