Book One of the Sonrise Farm series introduces Jenny Thomas, a girl who desperately wants a horse. Her family recently moved to Virginia from North Carolina and Jen is struggling to fit in. Her father loses his job which means that Jenny's ability to attend horse camp is in jeopardy. She comes up with a plan to earn the money.
Her week at Sonrise Farm is "horse heaven" but leaves Jen in emotional turmoil. Now that she's experienced horses, how can she ever return to a horseless life? Her pain drives her to a decision. Will she choose to trust Jesus with her broken heart?
Later, Jenny attends a horse auction where she comes face to face with a mare in dire need of rescue. Important concepts like rescue and redemption are brought to life through Jenny's heart for her horse and the way Jesus loves her.
These inspirational adventures are based on real life stories and are sure to encourage horse lovers of all ages.

All proceeds from the Sonrise Farm series go directly to Beautiful Brokenness Ministries, a horse-themed nonprofit started by Katy in 2010. Beautiful Brokenness incorporates rescued horses into a healing and discipleship program for teens and women. Every dollar you spend goes to scholarships and provision for the horses.
Jesus often taught using stories and metaphors. Just because a story is fiction, does not mean it has no truth. Stories are a powerful way to allow readers to experience the goodness of God. Having said that, many of Jenny's adventures have come from Katy's decades of horse rescue experience.
The Sonrise Farm series share realistic pictures of persistence, patience and hard work. Jenny does not give up. She prays, she struggles, she does her very best. Readers will identify with her deep yearning, and the answer to the eternal question we must each grapple with. "Will you trust Me?"
Jesus shows Jenny amazing things about Himself through her heart for horses. The concepts of rescue, redemption and reconciliation come alive to her, through her passion for her rescued horse. Relationship, trust, receiving, these are all ways Jesus allows Jenny and readers to see His Shepherd's heart.
