A wonderful review for In the Heart of a Mustang by the author of the Keystone Stable Series, Marsha Hubler: "This is a great book for tweens. The author addresses important issues for coming-of-age kids who might wrestle with bitterness vs. forgiveness, friendship, and bullying. She also gives wonderful details about "horse whispering," which has become the acceptable way to train a horse in modern times, not "break" him and his spirit. I recommend this book especially for boys and even girls who love horses."

GREAT REVIEW for In the Heart of a Mustang by Author, Blogger and Horsewoman Sharon Miner:
The book, In the Heart of a Mustang by MJ Evans, is the type of horse novel I love to read, one with an interesting protagonist, an endearing theme without being preachy, a detailed setting and cast of characters the reader won't forget.
When 15 year-old Hunter learns that his mother has lied to him about his father, he retaliates by running away and making the wrong sort of friends on the street. To avoid trouble with the court, his grandfather suggests they send Hunter to a boy's ranch in Arizona and grandpa will pay for his stay.
Hunter is not impressed with Promise Ranch at first, and especially when he meets the other at-risk boys and staff including the head cowboy, a horse trainer for the wild mustangs that the ranch adopts. But slowly he learns about life lessons, even after a PERSONAL tragedy.
This is a fantastic story for everyone, not just horse lovers. It's one of the best coming of age novels I've ever read!
