Book Review: Back in the Saddle by Ruth Logan Herne

I've been living on a ranch out west for the last week.  Well, not really, but while reading Back in the Saddle by Ruth Logan Herne, it's felt like I've been riding horses with a ranching family.

It's the story of a modern day prodigal son who returns home to find himself, his family, and his new role in life.  It's the story of a strong woman moving from a place of hiding to freedom, while embracing faith, courage and forgiveness.  It's the story of a dying father forgiving himself for past mistakes, and using the time he has left to love others and rebuild relationships.  It's the story of a family with a history of harmful choices becoming a  family that heals a community.

Every reader is sure to identify with one of the many well-develiped characters in this book.  It's a light-hearted and enjoyable book packed with life lessons and beautiful scenery.  I would recommend this book to any female reader age 14+.  

I've never read a noval by Herne, but I look forward to reading more.

I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
