This spin-off of the successful Winnie the Horse Gentler series introduces us to teens living in a foster family who deal with anger, betrayal, and illness while caring for abandoned animals. They discover God's love as they search for answers to life's questions.
Hank has been the sturdy, dependable biological Coolidge and the teen in charge of Starlight Animal Rescue. But a fire changes everything. The fire damages the barn housing Hank's beloved animals -- including a challenging horse he has been successfully training. When arson is suspected, Hank loses it and questions his faith and family.
While each book in the series includes e-mails from old pals Winnie, Catman, and their helpline, the final book brings Winnie and Catman to visit Starlight and actually meet the crew in this series. An older Winnie, on the brink of high school graduation, shows up with her own faith challenge.
