Synopsis: Remember how books by Marguerite Henry, Mary O’hara and Walter Farley thrilled us? Weaving its story into the fabric of modern day western America, this new contemporary series does the same for today’s youth. Janet Muirhead Hill has created an ongoing saga involving an "orphaned" girl with a burning desire for a horse of her own. In this award-winning first volume, Miranda meets the horse of her dreams, Starlight. She yearns to own him so they can always be together. Through the disastrous results of her attempt to ride him, Miranda learns lessons in honesty, courage and self integrity.

Now in its second printing, Miranda and Starlight entertains and encourages; thrills and edifies readers of all ages. These books have a positive impact, cultivating a love for reading and instilling important ideals.

Although set in the world of horse lore, Miranda and Starlight 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." Besides earning the Notable award, this book and its sequel Starlight’s Courage, have won the favor of a film producer and a feature film is currently in development. To the joy of young readers, Starlight Shines for Miranda, which is book five of the series, was awarded Young Adult Best Books 2004 winner by USA Book News.

From the Publisher: Best Books 2004 Awarded to the Starlight Series ~Author captures hearts of America’s youth, relating to today’s real-life moral dilemmas: heartache, triumph, losses and joy combine to illustrate that through perseverance one can make dreams come true.

Growing up in America today is not easy. Children face life-changing issues and are required to adjust to constant changes. Single and displaced parenting. New marriages. New families. Adoption. Peer-pressure. Teenage angst. Racism. Heartache. Triumph. Loss. Joy. Love. Suspense for what life will bring them. The desire to persevere to see their own dreams come true. Weaving it’s story into this fabric of daily life comes the highly acclaimed Starlight Series that young teens and those that care about them directly relate to and identify with. Proclaimed by readers of all ages as stories they cannot put down, these books have a positive impact, cultivating a love for reading and instilling important ideals.

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.
