Love Your Neighbor
Love Your Neighbor is the final Sonrise Stable book, and at 270 pages, is the longest in the series. In this exciting conclusion, Rosie does her best to obey the command Jesus called the second greatest. Love your neighbor as yourself.
Through the rodeo experiences with Billy and Dalton (in book 9), Rosie came to fully appreciate the commandment Jesus called the greatest. Now, she grapples with Christ’s second commandment – to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. It all seemed relatively easy until a rival from the past comes back into her life. How could God possibly expect Rosie to love that girl! Then, even worse, a mysterious new “enemy” arises to challenge Rosie further.
Uh-oh … A new adversary
When she faces a mysterious new adversary, Rosie discovers it’s harder to keep that command than she’d imagined. And the reappearance of an old rival who is determined to beat Rosie in Sonrise Stable’s Ride & Tie race makes things even more complicated.
The book includes discussion questions and a cartoon horse art lesson with equine artist Janet Griffin-Scott. You probably noticed I changed the color covers from the previous blog post about the book. I love the blue/red combination, but I’d already used that on the first book. I thought the black and brown fit with the Amish/plain theme and coordinated well with the horse and buggy.
Mark 12:31 And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” NKJV
Also contains an art lesson! Learning to draw cartoon-style horses.
About Author Vicki Watson
My love of horses began when a neighbor offered me my first ride behind her on her palomino Quarter Horse. From my 8-year-old perspective, he seemed like the biggest horse in the world. From that moment on, I was hooked. Horses were to become a very important part of my life, although I never could have imagined, at the time, how much God would teach me about Himself and my relationship to Him through these wonderful animals. The Sonrise Stable series combines my love of God and horses in stories designed to help the reader learn more about both.
