    Sycamore Whispers Novella

    The Sterling family lived a charmed life full of promise just outside the quaint Victorian village of Wycombe, Pennsylvania. Then one very odd day, sweet ten-year-old Emma's daddy comes home acting like someone she has never even met. Within months, the once loving Sterling family falls completely apart, and Emma is at risk of losing her innocence forever. Her only hope is a nasty chestnut mare named Ophelia with a selfish attitude and plenty of baggage of her own. Can their encounter fix one another or will Emma Sterling's wonderful life as she knows it be over forever?


    This is the stand-alone follow-up to the acclaimed Horse Gone Silent, the second in a collection of works aimed at encouraging the hearts of young woman and all those who believe in the hope, power and magic of the horse.
