THE SECRETS OF EMBERWILD by Stephenia H. McGee, Reviewed by Paula Shreckhise

Years after his father perished under the hooves of a stallion, Silas returns to the scene of the accident with many questions. Questions that those who were present cannot or are unwilling to answer. A search for work leads him to Emberwild Horse Farm, where more mystery lives. Nora, whose father recently died, is a fiercely independent and progressive woman who wants to take charge of Emberwild and race her favorite colt, Arrow.

After several mishaps m Silas surmises: “There is something very wrong at Emberwild.”But who can Nora trust? It will take both of them to figure out the secrets that haunt Emberwild. “Sooner or later, one of them would trip and the lies-or perhaps the truth- would spill. Then she could only pray the secrets of Emberwild would not leave them all with broken hearts and shattered hopes.”
Intrigue, mysteries, manipulation with a dash of romance and underlying faith make this an outstanding book by Ms. McGee.

BackCover Blurb:
A gifted trainer in a time women are not allowed to race, Nora Fenton prefers horses to men. They're easier to handle, they're more reliable, and they never tell her what to do. After her father's passing, Nora is determined to save her struggling horse farm, starting with entering her prize colt into the harness races at the 1905 Mississippi Fair. If she wins, she may have a chance at independence. But when a stranger arrives and starts asking disconcerting questions, she suspects he may have other motives than unseating her in the training job that is rightfully hers.

Silas Cavallero will do whatever it takes to solve the mystery of his father's death--even if it means training an unwieldy colt for Nora, who wants nothing more than to see him gone. But when mysterious accidents threaten their safety and circumstances shrouded in secrets begin unlocking clues to his past, Silas will have to decide if the truth is worth risking ruining everything for the feisty woman he's come to admire.
