Freedom: An Arabian Horse Novel (Wonder Horse Book Five) by Victoria Hardesty and Nancy Perez
Published October 15th 2019 by Publication Consultants
Freedom was abused and betrayed by every human he came in contact with as a young horse. Despite his promise to his mother to grow up and become a “good horse,” he distrusted all humans while harboring the hope he would find his “Heart Human” someday. Nathan was born with Autism. He was brilliant but lacked the skill to communicate. His parents tried many forms of therapy to help their son and couldn't find one that worked for him. He grew up isolated, passing his time on a computer learning about things he'd never be able to do.
Freedom's owner donated him to a therapeutic riding center. Nathan's mother got an invitation to a fundraiser for that center and investigated equine therapy for her son.
Something finally worked for Nathan. Then Nathan met Freedom and magic happened. Nathan wanted to ride the Tevis Cup Ride, the toughest 100 miles in one day ride in the world. Freedom's previous owner conditioned Freedom for that ride before she donated him. Four new friends stepped up to help join the horse with the boy and help them make their dreams come true.

REVIEW By LAWonder0:
This is an amazing, heart-rending story about an autistic boy and an Arabian horse.
Nathan's mother knew something was not right with he only child. At the ge of three, the doctors concluded he had autism. Nathan's parents was dissatisfied with the educational system so hired him a Tudor.
Freedom was a registered Arabian horse. However, upon his birth, the owner felt he didn't meet her standards so sold him... the first of many homes he would live.
This is a tale to increase understanding of autism, the problems of abuse and of prograns t aid both situations.
The story is presented by the parents and the young man's struggle and successes. Freedom is also given a "voice" concerning the fear, betrayal and confusion experienced in his young life.
This is a very emotional, intriguing, and insightful tale the whole family will enjoy!
The writing is superb and the story never drags.
I offer a Five Stars earing for this noel.
This was gifted me with no suggestion for a positive review. This is my honest review.
