New book: Torden, Hear The Thunder

1 11 2006


C. Kirkham has lovingly merged her literary aspirations and equestrian passions in Torden, Hear the Thunder, the first offering in a planned two-book series. This coming-of-age novel about friendship and loyalty, aimed at pre-teen girls and young women, springs to life against the backdrop of World War I-era Europe.

Just loooooooook at that delicious Friesian on the cover. More info at the official website, along with a sneaky peak at the book’s first chapter.
