Book Review: Whispering to Horses

Book: Whispering to Horses
Author: Thomas Nye

I was intrigued to read this novella as it was written by a local author about a man who moves into Amish country.  Thomas Nye’s writing is poetic and calls you to sit down and listen.  As Matt, the main character was rediscovering his roots, I too was pulled to recall my own.  A beautiful read which sweetly reminds us to breathe in our surroundings.

I’ll definitely read another by Mr. Nye.
