ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Cross My Heart
Series: Legacy of Faith #2
Author: Robin Lee Hatcher
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Release Date: June 25, 2019
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Split Timeline
When Ashley Showalter and Ben Henning meet on Ashley’s horse rescue farm, they quickly discover how much they have in common. Both were raised by single moms. Both want to help where they see a need. And both work with horses in the Boise valley. Ben needs Ashley’s help and expertise after starting an equine therapy barn on his great-great-grandfather’s farm—and the more time they spend together, both Ashley and Ben have the feeling that there could be something more between them.
They also carry the burden of past experiences that may drive them apart if the truth is ever revealed. Ben is a recovering alcoholic with five years of sobriety behind him, while Ashley’s brother is an opioid addict residing in court-ordered rehab. Holding fast to the belief that addicts can never be cured, Ashley has promised herself she will never walk knowingly into the chaos created by addiction. Ben knows that with God, all things are possible—but will Ashley find it within herself to give love a chance? Or will her brother’s mistakes and the pain of her past jeopardize her future with Ben?
Cross My Heart threads together a contemporary love story with the heartwarming tale of Ben’s great-great-grandfather, Andrew Henning—reminding us that God’s Word is timeless and that His promises are new every morning.

Please share with us what types of research you performed regarding equine care and horse rescue organizations/facilities as you wrote or prepared to write this novel:
FROM THE AUTHOR: While I have always loved horses and have owned quite a few in my life, equine therapy and equine rescue were new topics for me to explore.
I read a number of wonderful books about equine therapy, in addition to doing lots of Internet research on various rescue organizations around the country. But my favorite research came from in-person visits. I spent a couple of hours at a local area equine therapy barn called Ride for Joy, a wonderful facility that provides riding programs for those with disabilities, including one specifically for veterans. And because my granddaughter has been involved in equine rescues, providing temporary housing to rescued horses before they find a forever home, I also went to see her and peppered her with lots of questions.
