Read full description of the books Calico Horses and the Patchwork Trail:When the Spirit of Horse speaks to a ten-year-old girl through her dreams and calico patches magically appear as if from nowhere, the residents of Saddlecrest, Nevada have a genuine mystery on their hands.
It's the story of how a girl ripped apart by divorce helps the wild mustangs torn from the range. Together they face uncertainties brought on by the decisions of others.
Carrie's mom decides to uproot her from their familiar Jersey Shore home and move to the dusty deserts of Nevada. The move is as prickly to Carrie as the cactus beside her new home. But something mysterious greets her when she closes her eyes each night--like a winding path, her dreams guide her to the horses of the Calico Mountains. Are her developing psychic abilities bringing visits from horse spirits or is her troubled mind playing tricks on her? Her new friend Milla has nightmares of her own--she's the daughter of a government official known as "The Horse Killer."
How can a few children make a difference to the plight of the foals snatched from their homes without warning? Like the tiny patches of cloth that adorn a calico quilt the clues draw them all together. Follow the Calico Horses as they lead us down the trail of adversity to the peaceful pastures found by helping one another.
Read information about the author
As a young girl, motivational speaker and author/illustrator Lorraine Turner was told she would never make it as an artist yet went on to become a two-time Emmy winner for her work as one of the lead designers for the NBA's Philadelphia 76ers. She has also created award-winning Children's Activity Books and is a multiple Eisner Award nominee in her role as Art Director for the Library of American Comics.
After surviving years of abuse she became a team leader for one of the first community Domestic Violence Response Teams in New Jersey and helped the Attorney General's Office form the police guidelines which are still being used today.
At the age of 53 she left an unhappy marriage, stuffed her tiny car with all of her worldly possessions, swapped her trinkets for cash at a jewelry store, and drove over 1400 miles to Key West where she found a job on Craig's list. She exchanged her high paying designer job for a clerk's position in an art gallery.
Today, with the help of meditation, she happily writes, illustrates, and teaches others to follow their dreams. She is a living testimony to the power of moving thoughts into action.
