A Daughter’s Remembrance
By Marcia A. Hancock
Illustrations by Jason Nocera
Author Marcia A. Hancock writes a charming, warmhearted story dedicated to the memories of her father and a remarkable horse named Snoops. The story begins at the end of her father's life and flashes back to reminiscences of the relationships between herself, her father and Snoops; who seems more human than horse. The Tobiano-paint rescue horse enters their lives when both the horse and the father are in bad shape and aging.
It is love at first sight for the horse and the man — they seem to share a secret understanding of each other and are in separable. High-energy feed strengthens Snoops even as the presence of this much loved animal improves the physical and emotional health of the man who adores him. For the first time in their lives Marcia and her father develop a close relationship . . . All due to a horse named Snoops.
Author Hancock writes a sweet, poignant tale about how the love of a horse brings her closer to knowing her father. This is a children's book for ages three – seven, to be read aloud, and by older children as well, preteens, young adult and adults. This short story will be enjoyed by horse lovers and readers of all ages. The creative illustrations by Jason Nocera further enhance the story which is soon to be followed by stories of . . . more remembrances.
