Joey, Book Review

Joey by Jennifer Marshall Bleakley 

The heartwarming true story of a blind horse named Joey.
At the height of his show career, this beautiful Appaloosa's majestic stature, strength, and willingness to work made him the perfect partner. But when an injury cost Joey his show career, he moved from one owner to the next, ultimately experiencing severe abuse and neglect. A rescue group found Joey nearly dead from starvation--and blind.

Then he came to Hope Reins--a ranch dedicated to helping hurting kids who had been abused, emotionally wounded, or unwanted. By teaching these children to care for rescued animals, the Hope Reins staff were convinced they could reach kids with love and hope and show them that we are never forgotten by God.

But could the financially struggling ranch afford to take care of a blind horse that no one else wanted? Could Joey somehow learn to trust people even though the world had hurt him so badly? And what would happen--to Joey, the kids, and Hope Reins--if they failed?

A true story of friendship destined to become a classic, Joey will touch your heart and reveal the power of finding light in the darkness.

My Thoughts: This is one of those books that I knew I'd like when I saw the cover, and was quick to say yes when the publisher offered it to me to review! This is just a wonderful story of a woman’s dream to help abused children using rescued horses as well as relying on God to provide, often in times that are so hard to get through – to accomplish her goals and make the best of her situation even better.  From the  people to the children, and  of course the horses they'll all touch your heart.
