About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

The Horse of My Dreams: True Stories of the Horses We Love by Callie Smith Grant (Editor)

The Horse of My Dreams: True Stories of the Horses We LoveABOUT THE BOOK

The Horse of My Dreams: True Stories of the Horses We Love by Callie Smith Grant

Where do we turn when work is draining, a friend lets us down, or we can't take any more news stories or political controversies? We turn to animals. We watch and share heartwarming videos of animals and the people who love them. For over a decade, Callie Smith Grant has been helping people celebrate our animal friends with her delightful collections of stories, and she's back with more true stories for horse lovers.

With contributions from both well-known and up-and-coming writers, this heartwarming collection is the perfect way for animal lovers to decompress and remember God's good gift to us in the majestic, calming, inspiring, and even silly horses he created. Horse owners, horse lovers, and horse dreamers will adore these uplifting true stories.


When I was a growing up, I always dreamed of having my own horse but living in town with only a small yard stopped this dream from happening. Instead, I would watch western TV shows and read books, both fiction and non-fiction, that were about horses. There is a new book from Callie Smith Grant that will appeal to people like me and it is a collection of thirty-two short stories that tell of this passion for these special animals. Some of the contributors are well-known authors, some are beginning writers, and there are even bloggers included, but they all all share this one thing in common. Some of the stories are humorous and some are sad but they all will make you appreciate the strong relationships that occur between a horse and its owner.

This is an enjoyable book and there are many interesting historical facts included in these 224 pages. The Horse of My Dreams would be a wonderful gift for anyone who loves horses.

I received a copy of this book from Revell Publishing and I was under no obligation to write a positive review. These are my own opinions.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Callie Smith Grant is the editor of A Prince among Dogs and A Dickens of a Cat. She is also the author of several nonfiction books for young readers and adults as well as many animal-themed stories and poems which can be seen in Guideposts anthologies and in magazines such as Small Farmers Journal.
