Danny Solomon operates Break Away Acres, an equine therapy center for abused kids and teens. As a former abuse victim, Danny knows how important it is to let these kids know that someone still cares. God has blessed Danny with a gift: the ability to see the past of anyone who meets his eye. The information he is given through this gift allows him to know how he might best help those around him. Phoenix Nichols is Danny’s new trail guide. Her job is to help with the horses and keep an eye on the kids. With a past more painful than anything Danny has ever encountered, he finds himself unable to resist trying to help. When her past becomes her present, her trust in Danny is the only link she has to finding God…and peace.

The Synopsis of the book really peaked my interest that I wanted to read this book. The setting is a Ranch for Therapy for abused kids. I know a few families who use Horse Therapy for Autism or other medical issues, so the fact that horses can also be used with Abused kids is wonderful.

The Horse Ranch is owned by Danny Solomon. Danny was abused as a child, so he started the Ranch to help kids overcome and the fact that he knows their pain and can understand what they are going through, really touched me. Along comes Phoenix Nichols, who has been hired as a Trial Guide for the Ranch. Danny can see that she is carrying "baggage and pain" from her past. Danny takes on the task of helping her through the pains of her past. Will the 2 of them bond over the fact that they both struggle with deep wounds from their past? Can they come together and help one another? Will this lead to a deepened relationship between Danny and Phoenix? Grab a copy of the book and dive into just as I did!

I really enjoyed reading this book! Even though I have never suffered any abuse as those in the book, it was really therapeutic reading this! The author really dives into subject matter that is all to real for many, but does so in a gentle way that would be helpful to anyone who reads this! I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who has suffered abuse! GREAT BOOK!!

More from Tabitha

Danny and Phoenix are the main characters in Trial by Patience, but Danny isn’t a new character. As part of The Trials series, Danny is introduced in book 1 as a scrappy six-year-old. Two years after I finished writing book 1, he’s twenty-eight. (Don’t you love how time can be manipulated in the literary world.) Fun fact: When I wrote book 1: Trial by Courage, I had no idea Danny would get his own book. God works in mysterious ways and His sense of humor astounds me. I had a million ideas and half-started manuscripts littered my desk but I had no idea what to focus on next. Within two weeks of Trial by Courage’s release, three people asked me when Danny’s story would be ready. The first time, I blinked slowly and shrugged (I wasn’t about to tell them I had no intention of writing about Danny). Second time, I laughed. Third time, I knew it was an honest question and I started writing. A year later, I typed THE END, had an author copy printed and handed it over to my sister for proofing. Little did I know I wasn’t anywhere near finished. Danny’s story would NOT leave me alone. I was constantly trying to reassure myself that it was done, just minor adjustments…boy was I wrong! Six months ago, I realized I needed to change the ending, which lead to a complete rewrite of the last half of the book and major changes in the beginning chapters. Talk about scary, and exciting, but mostly scary. I even made another copy of the original script in case I changed my mind about this new ending. I shouldn’t have worried. I’m in love with this new copy and every angsty minute that went into making Trial by Patience the book it is today.

To celebrate her tour, Tabitha is giving away the grand prize of an eBook copy of her book and $25 Amazon gift card!!
