Although set in the world of horse lore, Miranda and Starlight, the first of the series, was touted by Writer’s Notes Awards panelists as "more than a mere horse story. It is a journey of courage and consequences." The reviewer added, "My own children will read this story." Starlight Shines for Miranda, which is book five of the series, was honoured with Best Books 2004 for Young Adults award, by USA Book News, to the delight of our young readers.
Miranda Stevens, age ten in the first book, encounters a number of adventures, quandaries and conflicts, most brought on by her impulsive and compassionate nature. As a teenager in book six, Miranda faces many of the conflicts that confront adolescents today. She forms lasting friendships, endures pain and sorrow, experiences triumph and joy, learns valuable life lessons, and faces a promising future, illustrating that through perseverance one can make dreams come true.
Raven Publishing, Inc. is graced by Janet Muirhead Hill's heartfelt dedication to children's literature. To echo the sentiments of distinguished review source, Children's Bookwatch, we are fortunate to have "one of the truly skilled storytellers writing for young readers today."From the Author:
"If the excitement in "Miranda and Starlight" gripped your attention and had you asking for more, you won't be disappointed in "Starlight's Courage." Three of the new characters introduced in this book play important roles in Miranda's life. One is a six year old boy who Miranda immediately likes, another, a man who holds a key to her past and the third, a fearsome enemy. I think you may find this sequel even more exciting and harder to put down than the first!"
