Wild Horses is book one in the series Sadie’s Montana Sadie is a young Amish woman who is heart broken when her family moves from Ohio to Montana.  Not only is she separated from her family, but also from her beloved horse, Paris.  Sadie finally starts to adjust to Montana, having settled in with her family and beginning a job at a local Ranch.  However, upon rescuing a dying horse, she meets a young man named Mark, who appears to be English, though he attends Amish functions.  She begins to have feelings for him but is also being courted by an Amish man named Ezra.  In the meantime, not only is her mother’s health is deteriorating, but a band of wild horses is wreaking havoc on the community.  It seems as if life is going out of control for Sadie.
I LOVED this book.  I don’t know what it was about it, but it stuck out to me in comparison to the other Amish books I’ve read.  This family seemed more relaxed in their beliefs.  Perhaps that was it.  I really loved the storyline.  So much so that I went out and bought the sequels while still reading book one because I was so excited to see what happened.  I love the story line and Sadie’s love for horses.  She has such a special way with them.  I can’t say too much more without giving it away, but I highly recommend this book!
