"I started reading Blinders on Sunday afternoon and literally couldn't put it down until I finished it at almost midnight that night. The story grabbed me in the very first chapter and kept me turning the pages all day." -Amazon Review (5 Stars)
-Blinders, Volume 1 (book club edition) in The Blinders Trilogy by Kristy Shelton, portrays a beautiful relationship between a former slave couple and a boy who wanders onto their farm, as well as the redeeming forgiveness of the heavenly Father.
In this inspirational novel, Eugene, an eleven-year-old boy growing up in Kentucky in 1912, is drawn to a light in the distance that compels him to run away from his abusive stepfather. He is led to the farm of Franklin and Rachel Hawkins who live in a rundown house built on top of a cave, surrounded by magnificent thoroughbred horses grazing in their bluegrass pasture.
Eugene is adopted into the family and, as he grows up, gradually discovers secrets from the past that keep Franklin and Rachel isolated on their remote farm. Eugene is severely tested when he is seized from the farm at the age of sixteen and forced into the Great War now raging in France. He embarks on a dangerous journey that will put his life and faith to the test.
"Eugene threw himself into her open arms. He thought for a second he might not be able to breathe, she held him so tight. But he didn't care, he belonged to her, and that's all that matters."
