Guest Review by Alexis: Winnie the Horse Gentler Series

Calling all horse lovers!


Dandi Daley Mackall will satisfy your heart for horses as she takes you along through the Winnie the Horse Gentler series. Starting with “Wild Thing” where Winnie, a 12 yr old girl who loves horses, faces tragedy as her mom dies in a car accident, and her dad moves her and her sister Lizzy all over the country. Never in one place long enough to settle down, now they are in Asheville, NC. When Winnie meets her dream horse she doesn’t want to leave. But the owner of the horse doesn’t want to give it up.

Dandi Daley Mackall describes things very well. She gives lots of details. There is suspense woven throughout this book.

Happy reading.
