Starlight Comes Home, the sixth and final book of the exciting saga of a young girl coming of age in western Montana, is scheduled for release in November 2004, and tackles serious issues facing youth.
Immerse yourself in this captivating six book series about the mishaps and adventures that form a bond of love between two spirited creatures, a girl and a horse! Proclaimed by readers of all ages as stories they cannot put down, these books have a positive impact, cultivating a love for reading and instilling important ideals. Miranda Stevens, age ten in the first book, encounters a number of adventures, quandaries and conflicts, most brought on by her impulsive and compassionate nature. As a teenager in book six, Miranda faces many of the conflicts that confront adolescents today. She forms lasting friendships, endures pain and sorrow, experiences triumph and joy, learns valuable life lessons, and faces a promising future, illustrating that through perseverance one can make dreams come true.
Although set in the world of horse lore, Miranda and Starlight, the first of the series, was touted by WriterÂs Notes Awards panelists as Âmore than a mere horse story. It is a journey of courage and consequences.Â The reviewer added, ÂMy own children will read this story.Â Besides earning Writers Notes Magazines Notable award, this book has won the favor of a film producer and a feature film is currently in development.
Distinguished review source, ChildrenÂs Book Watch, says upon viewing the latest book of the series: Âthis documents Janet Muirhead Hill as one of the truly skilled storytellers writing for young readers today.Â
Janet Muirhead Hill resides with her family, horses and other pets in rural southwestern Montana. She launched Raven Publishing with a newsletter entitled Alone Together in 1997, when she saw a need for a forum for adult survivors of child abuse, as well as a means of educating the public about the long lasting and devastating effects of childhood trauma. In the fall of 2001, Ms. Hill decided to branch out from the newsletter to publish her own books, and eventually other authorsÂ writings. She began with her Starlight Books and now that the series is complete will publish more of her writing and two new authors in 2005. She adds ÂscreenwriterÂ to her credentials as she adapts the books into script form for the big screen.
Starlight Comes Home, in the tradition of the first five books, provides a heart-felt adventure and dramatically concludes the Starlight Series, but is also a good stand alone read. This novel is the authorÂs personal favorite! In time for the Holiday Season, it will make the perfect gift for young readers. Teens are sure to enjoy this novel, along with readers of all ages. Having 238 pages, it is fully illustrated by gallery artist Pat Lehmkuhl and is available for only $9.00.
