            Winter has passed and summer has come for the Berkemeier family. And after a crazy autumn the year before, Eli is looking forward to a quiet life on the Wilson homestead where he is trying to raise his family. But the drought that had occurred the previous year struck them again,... and Eli finds himself forced to take measures to survive the coming winter. As Eli sets out with several men from the community to push a herd of cattle east to market, he can't stop thinking about the horserace he had witnessed just before he left. But then things take a turn for the worse back home, and Eli finds himself in a race against time to settle things peacefully the only way he knows how: horseracing. Unfortunately, Lightning is beginning to age, and seems to have lost his desire to race. But with no other options left, will Lightning come through for Eli, or has this saga in Eli's life ended? Follow along as Jeremy Burkholder once again brings to life the enduring Berkemeier saga with a compelling tale that is Christian, wholesome, and good for the entire family, set in the early 1900s, and able to inspire his readers to persevere in their faith, knowing that God's children have better days awaiting them.

BJ, as he is well known, is a silent achiever in the industry, a humble man who has never sought publ...icity but has earned it. After enjoying success as a jockey, he has become one of the country's leading trainers and a member of the elite group of horsemen to prepare more than 1000 winners in New Zealand. He has also established White Robe Lodge (his stud named in honour of his first winner) as a leading breeding nursery" --Publisher description.

            Racing's gripping tales come from obscure characters who toil in anonymity at under-the-radar racetracks everywhere - minimum-wage stable-hands chopping ice from frozen water buckets in pre-dawn winter darkness; and grooms who sleep in stalls and cry over sick steeds that aren't ...worth much more than a saddle. This book tells their stories.

            Michelle Payne rode into history as the first female jockey to win the Melbourne Cup. She and her 100-to-1 local horse Pirate of Penzance took the international racing world by surprise but hers was no overnight success story. Michelle was first put on a horse aged five. By seven... she was doing track work. Aged nine she said her greatest dream would be to win the Melbourne Cup. All of the ten Payne children learned to ride racehorses but Michelle has stayed the distance. She has ridden the miles, done the dawn training, fallen badly and each time got back on the horse. So when she declared that anyone who said women couldn't compete in the industry could 'get stuffed', the nation stood up and cheered. Michelle has the audacity to believe she can succeed against all the odds. Her story is about hope triumphing over adversity, and how resilience and character made a winner.
