Shadow Over San Mateo Reviews
I cried my way through this book!Tricia Evanston kept thinking of her brothers words, "Just get through the ceremonies." She couldn't look at him, just left him support her as the cameras took pictures of Spitfire. The win was a family affair, Spitfire, bred and raised by Hal Evanston, was the winner of the Belmost Cup, but why was his son, David, accepting? Trisha said, "We did it, Dad," over the mike, as they left the Secret Service held back reporters. The limo took them to the hospital, Trisha was crying. Her father's voice seemed to say, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished my race." The family said their final goodbye to him as they left his hospital room. Trish's mother collapsed into her brother's arms & Trish tried to stop shaking. Even the nurses knew he was a fine man, even though he had only been at that hospital a short time. Spitfire was to be shipped to BlueMist Farms in Kentucky. What hope did she have?
I enjoyed this series very much. A girl who lives on a horse farm in Oregon wants to be a jockey. Finally, her dream is coming true. Just as it has come true, her father dies of cancer. After this, she learns to cope with his death by turning to God. The one thing I did not appreciate about this book was the whole boyfriend/girlfriend thing throughout the series. But, overall, I definately enjoyed them.
This book was excellent as it takes a real look at grief. I recommend for all teens as it is such a good view into how grief can manifest itself. Adults, too, if they've never experienced grief themselves.
A great book!
I like how Snelling takes Trish through the grieving process, and shows that even with our biggest dreams fufilled without God they are nothing.
