Book Signing with Sallie Jo Hawken

Join us for a book signing with local author Sallie Jo Hawken featuring her book "God and Good Horses."

About the Book:

"In Ellie's deepest, darkest moments, she wanted to know "What did I do wrong? Why didn't she want me? Why couldn't I have been born to you?"

In my deepest, darkest moments, I had cried out to God, "What did I do wrong? Why won't you send us a baby? Why would you make me want to be a mother and then not give me a child?" Looking at Ellie was like looking at my own pain through a two-way mirror. The holes in her heart matched my own. She wanted a mom. I wanted a baby. And God had answered.

Sallie and her husband, Seth, have been struggling to start their family for years. Doctors, inconclusive testing, and the pain of empty loving arms were taking a toll on their lives and their marriage. When Sallie has an encounter with God, she gives the reins of her life to Him. That's when the Lord sends them down a winding, complicated path toward adoption.

Ellie is a ten-year-old girl who has never known anything but violence and pain. Nothing has ever been permanent in her young life, and she has become withdrawn and aggressive. She is tossed through foster care from home to home until one day, her social worker tells her she is going to be adopted.

Their worlds collide, and in an instant, everything is changed. But how can Seth and Sallie possibly help an angry and out-of-control Ellie overcome the terrors of her past? Love alone will not be enough. There is only one solution--the light always drives out the darkness."
