Cleanliness (See “About” for scale): Very Clean (No cursing. Topics to consider: religion, animal abuse, abandonment, disease, mention of self-harm, extreme grief, and animal death.)
On the surface, Joey is a novel about a blind rescue horse that helps “emotionally wounded” children. Inside, it’s so much more. This beautiful (non-fiction) story is about religion, pain, broken hearts, forgiveness, faith, healing, and mostly importantly – pure love. It’s deep, inspiring, and pushes you to leap out of your comfort zone. A major simple, but wonderful, point this book stresses is that amazing things can happen when you just trust in God.
I really enjoyed the author’s writing style. Even the prologue captivated me! She worded things so nicely. I didn’t want to put it down!
This is the kind of book that is perfect for sitting under a willow tree on a lovely, spring day. (Picturesque, right?) Joey has the ability to make you warm and fuzzy one moment, and crying the next (in the best way possible).
I honestly can’t even put into words how much I loved this novel. The love, joy, and healing caused from a horse is just amazing. It made me very happy, and I definitely recommend it to anyone.
