Published in 2017, Lydia's Gift is the second installation in the inspiring middle grade chapter book series “Adventures on Grayson Farm” and features five young horses, including the main character, Lydia, one motherly broodmare, two delightfully fully crows, two brave farm dogs and one very vain calico cat.
Lydia is a beautiful chestnut filly and the youngest in the herd, but what sets her apart is that she was born half blind with only one eye. Lydia does not know she is different, only that the other young horses avoid her. All alone and struggling to fit in, she makes some unconventional animal friends who teach her important new skills she will need in unexpected times of peril.
It explores the themes that our greatest weakness may be our greatest strength and a disability may be a gift we just didn't know we had.
