Item Description...
This summer, Skye, Chad, and Morgan are planning on teaching four special needs children the art of riding and handling horses, and are especially excited to teach Katie Thomas, a girl who went blind in a car accident four years ago. Not only is Katie blind, but her parents are also getting divorced, something Katie blames on her loss of sight, making her bitter at the world, and at God. With the help of Skye, Katie?s faith begins to grow, and she gets swept up in the world of the stable, soon becoming a skilled barrel racer. But as the summer goes on, her parent?s divorce, and her disability, begin to wear on Katie, and she spends more time in her room with her talking computer. Through friendship, Skye tries her best to show Katie that her parents still love her, and that God is always there, no matter what happens.

More About Marsha Hubler

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Marsha has had a background conducive to effective writing. She has a master's degree in education from Bloomsburg University, Bloomsburg, PA, and has been an educator for over forty years. She had co-founded two private schools, Kreamer Christian Academy, Kreamer, PA, and the Bethesda Prep School, Milton, PA, and had served as teacher/administrator in each. She is presently a PA certified homeschool consultant, working out of her office in her Middleburg home, where she lives with her husband and two dogs. Marsha has owned horses for over 20 years, therefore knows her horse facts in and out. She also lives in central PA, "Dutch" country, highly populated by the Amish and Mennonite, who have been a valuable first-hand resource for Marsha's latest project, a series about the Amish and Mennonite folk in the beautiful Susquehanna Valley in central PA. Marsha is excited that her eight-book "Keystone Stables Series" published by Zonderkidz has become a best seller. She also is quite proud of her last two stand-alone books, RICKIE RIDES TO THE RESCUE and THE SECRET OF WOLF CANYON. She has 13 books in print with her Amish/Mennonite fiction series for ladies entitled "The Loves of Snyder County," soon to be added to her publishing credentials. She hears from her fans on a regular basis. Several have said they have started to seriously think about God, and one gal wrote that she was thinking of killing herself until she read one of Marsha's books. "That's the best pay any writer could ever get," Marsha says. "I write not only to entertain but also to encourage my readers. Every one of my books has a positive outlook on life with solutions to every problem with God's help. Her life verse is 1 Corinthians 15:10a: "But by the grace of God I am what I am ..."

Marsha Hubler was born in 1947.

The Winning Summer and the ultimate triumph of Marsha Hubler  Jan 30, 2006
Marsha Hubler once again produces another fun, interesting, entertaining and inspiring book in the Keystone Stables series. The new character in the book is Katie, a girl who went blind due to an auto accident. Though there is not a great amount of detail as to the transition from sight to blindness, Mrs. Hubler does successfully convey the emotions experienced by those who have recently gone blind. I should know, as I am blind myself. Some of the adaptive devices used by the blind are also mentioned. I would recommend this book for several reasons.
1. It is inspiring and thought-provoking..
2. It keeps the reader interested and entertained.
3. It is largely realistic. I would like to point out two facts that will clarify things somewhat. Katie is depressed and isolated throughout most of the book. Although this is a common emotional state for individuals who first lose their sight, it DOES NOT often persist so long as the blind person receives the necessary training and experience. Though this is commonly thought to occur, mostly due to having been portrayed so frequently in the obviously stereotypical media, blind people DO NOT EVER touch the faces of other people. However, so long as the reader is aware of this fact I do not see the inclusion of this scene as presenting too much of a problem. I personally choose to view this scene with humor.
Mrs. Hubler has obviously done extensive research in preparation for the task of accurately portraying the blind person. I believe she has succeeded. This book is good on its own, but I would highly recommend purchasing the other books as well, as it will allow the reader to obtain a greater understanding of the Keystone Stables setting. As stated earlier, I give this book five stars, or should I say five folding canes.
