Publisher Comments:

Kim Meeder has seen horses go where no one else can tread - stepping through the minefield of a broken child's soul in a dance of trust that only God can understand. From a mistreated horse to an emotionally starved child and back again, a torrent of love washes away their barren places. Kim's ranch is a place where this miracle happens over and over again. It is a place where the impossible flourishes, where dreams survive the inferno of reality - a place where hope rises.

Where Wounded Spirits Run Free

Follow a horse where no one else can tread, through the minefield of pain that surrounds a broken child’s soul. From a mistreated horse to an emotionally starved child and back again, a torrent of love revives their barren places.

In the presence of unconditional love, a mute girl speaks for the first time. A defiant teenager teaches a horse to trust again...and opens his own heart to love. A rescued horse gives a dying man his last wish. A battered girl finds love and protection in the friendship of a battered horse...

Come visit a place where the impossible flourishes, where dreams survive the inferno of reality—a place where hope rises.

Synopsis:

A collection of true stories sure to move readers' hearts, "Hope Rising" can appeal to anyone who is inspired by the power of compassion for the brokenhearted. It illustrates God's grace to His beloved children through His works of creation.

This is one of the best books I've ever read. The love and trust that bonds the abused horses with the children brought to the ranch is incredible! To think that horses that have been abused by people can find trust in children who have been in heartbreaking situations themselves; and the unconditional love the horses give back to these children, to bring the children out of the shells that they have shut themselves into is what I would call a miracle!

I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone!

All based on true stories and an actual ranch!

This is one of the best books I've ever read! When horses that have been neglected and/or abused are paired up with children who have been neglected, abused, and/or come from broken homes, only good can come of it. What these animals and children teach each other is amazing! They learn from each other that after all the hurt in their lives, they do have worth, they are needed, they are loved, and they can trust! Miracles to happen!
