The Secrets of Emberwild by Stephenia McGee

About the book

A gifted trainer in a time women are not allowed to race, Nora Fenton prefers horses to men. They’re easier to handle, they’re more reliable, and they never tell her what to do. After her father’s passing, Nora is determined to save her struggling horse farm, starting with entering her prize colt into the harness races at the 1905 Mississippi Fair. If she wins, she may have a chance at independence. But when a stranger arrives and starts asking disconcerting questions, she suspects he may have other motives than unseating her in the training job that is rightfully hers.

Silas Cavallero will do whatever it takes to solve the mystery of his father’s death–even if it means training an unwieldy colt for Nora, who wants nothing more than to see him gone. But when mysterious accidents threaten their safety and circumstances shrouded in secrets begin unlocking clues to his past, Silas will have to decide if the truth is worth risking ruining everything for the feisty woman he’s come to admire.

    My husband and I met through a mutual friend though we hadn’t actually “met” until a year & a half later. He was in the Marine Corp in North Carolina & I lived in Maryland. I was talking to one of my best friends in a chat room one evening. She was able to get in one at work when she was bored. I’d hop on to keep her company. My husband was on to talk to his friend who was stationed in Okinawa. My friend introduced us & we started talking. That turned into letters & phone calls. Eventually we finally met & we married after he finished Bible college in Oregon. He was in the reserves at the time. He now is in the USAF full time & we will be married 20 years in June. I’m sure this is hard to follow. It’s hard writing it all out. 😂😂😂

    So, my RA took pictures of us on move-in day and had them posted with what room we were in as a way for us to become familiar with the faces in our dorm and so we could make friends…….. now looking back maybe that wasn’t really a great idea 🥴. However, one night there was a knock on the door & to my surprise a cute guy wanting to know if I wanted to hang out because he had seen my picture on the board in the hall. Luckily he wasn’t a Joe Glodberg type 😆 neither of us were looking for anything serious BUT we’ve been together ever since & married 15 years this June ❤️
